Isn't it often the case that the "good" unlicensed sites will not accept players from jurisdictions with strong licensing, if only because the games suppliers don't want to jeopardise their profitable licensed markets?

Can probably be the case for some sites.
Last time i went outside of licensing i played on 3dice, and that does not really apply to them.
Fun site tho.

I mean, theres about 100 licenses on the Swedish market.
So anyone who wants to can blow thru around €50k per week before any need to go to unlicensed casinos appear.

People who deposit more than €500 per deposit may seek sites outside of regulation tho.
Probably a rather small % of gamblers doing that.

I believe the limit is per player, not per casino?

Depositing £1800 into a casino in a month is already an expensive leisure pursuit. There will be, I am sure, lots of people who can do this easily but they will be dwarfed by the vast majority who absolutely cannot afford this. So this is a state intervention which should be welcomed. Money lost in a casino is money lost for other things in the economy. It's the most unproductive kind of money. Setting a limit is, effectively, the same as paying £30 for a theatre ticket or £60 for a meal out. It actually sets a fixed price to the entertainment being offered. Can't see the problem here and it might help those who struggle to control their gambling.

Aye. From what I can see, they offer mostly their own (or a very restricted range of 3rd party) slots. And don't accept UK registrants.

They are watching me :eek:
No it can't be since Casumo have no idea if I just was on a visit to Videoslots. The bank might know, but they are not allowed to stop me. Or I could just use another way to deposit.

I think my weekly limit at VS is set on €300 so I guess this is not a problem for me.
But that time limit though. If I win I can play for twelve hours no problem. I haven't seen how many hours I would be able to set it to. Anyone else know if I can chose 24 hours, just to not be kicked out? :)

Just been informed by mail that Calzone is leaving the Swedish market from 18 June midnight. Looks like you're going the UK way of nannyism.

Yes we are. UK and Sweden are working together in this so I'm not surprised at all.

They could make make it per bank id, but that would need them to manage that database and trigger everything over limit so let's make this kind of easy solution what all can circumvent without need to do anything fraudulent...

It's great to have some government (or what ever instance came out with this) regulations in place which even Spelsinspektionen themselves say is not good.

I dont think thats possible as Tirilej mentioned.
Casinos dont share info between each other like that, or atleast i think they dont (who knows)

Its probably 5000sek/week per brand tho, so 5000sek/week over all the l&l or kindred sites for example.

Yeah, just like you say, they offer mostly their own slots.
Not saying thats necessarily a bad thing tho.
They have some pretty great games, and "the usual" 9-liners etc can be found there aswell.

And after watching @ChopleyIOM shilling them for so long, i gave it a go myself, and was not disappointed.
