Sweden's Q3 2021 Financial Grows

This week Sweden's gaming regulator Spelinspektionen has revealed that the country's gaming industry saw revenues grow 5% for the third quarter of 2021 when compared to the same period last year.

The regulator said that there were sales of SEK6.3 billion during the quarter from the 95 companies that are licensed in the country. Revenue numbers are up from last year, but down slightly from the second quarter of this year, when revenues hit SEK6.5 billion.

Commercial online gambling including slots and table games generated revenues of SEK3.9 billion, up from SEK3.6 billion. 65 of the 95 licensed gaming groups offer online gaming services, leading to the high percentage of revenue numbers that we're seeing in the report.

The land-based industry saw a large rise to SEK47,000, up from last year's total of SEK34,000.

State lottery and machine games was roughly steady at SEK1.4 billion.

Sweden has implemented a number of limits on the gambling industry during the Covid pandemic, with SEK5,000 deposit limits, while casinos can only offer bonuses of SEK100. This will continue for some time, although it doesn't appear to have negatively impacted the industry as a whole.
