Sweden to release details of license application process

Published

on

Sweden’s national lottery regulatory body, Lotteriinspektionen, will provide application documents for new licenses in the country in public domain from July 10.

The licenses are envisaged by the new gambling bill, which will come into effect from January 1, 2019.

The bill proposes changes in various aspects such as international cooperation, responsible gambling, supervision, and fees.

Sweden’s parliament had voted 282-19 in favour of the bill and the regulator said it expects to also secure government approval by July 5 at the earliest.

Should this be the case, application documents will be made available soon after in preparation for the regulator to open the licensing process as planned on August 1.

In addition, as part of the preparation, the regulator said that its regulations and guidelines included in the bill will be pre-published on its website after July 24.

These rules will come into force on a preliminary basis on September 1, prior to full regulation from the start of next year.

In a statement, the regulator added: “Stakeholders show great interest in the re-regulation of the Swedish gambling market, also internationally.”

“Many operators have already shown interest in applying for a licence in Sweden, which, according to plan, shall be possible from 1 August.”

8-15 Romanian Investors to Relaunch and Turn Lebada Luxury Resort & Spa into CasinoReading Time: 1 minute

 

Two Romanian entrepreneurs are going to relaunch the Lebada Luxury Resort & Spa in the Danube Delta. They have invested EUR 20 million in the complex, purchased in 2017 for EUR 3 million from the tax agency ANAF. ANAF sold the complex to recover damages owed to the state by convicted businessman Sorin Ovidiu Vantu.

The re-opening comes at a time when the lawmakers discuss a law that extends special fiscal regime to gambling operations located on islands “including in the bioreserve Danube Delta.”

“We have a casino building, but we are waiting for the regulations in place,” said Laurentiu Niculae, general manager Lebada Luxury Resort & SPA.

Lebada Luxury Resort & Spa is located in the heart of the Danube Delta, on the Sulina branch. The complex has a land of almost four hectares. The complex has over 200 accommodation rooms, of which 140 are for the guests and the rest of the employees.

The Iowa House has passed a bill which legalises betting on sporting events and fantasy sports and send it to the governor for consideration.

The Senate gave its approval and the bill now goes to Gov. Kim Reynolds who has said she will await the final version of the bill to decide whether she will sign it.

The bill also legalises fantasy sports contests and internet fantasy sports betting but delays betting based on college sporting event statistics until May 2020.

The commission regulates the 19 state-licensed casinos in Iowa. Once the rules are set up by the commission as early as this summer sports bets can be placed at casinos or on a mobile application they establish.

Sports betting would be limited to those 21 and older, and the bill sets a 6.75% tax on net receipts. Taxes and licensing fees could bring in estimated annual revenue of $2.3 million to $4 million annually.
