Apple Sweden To Reinstate Gambling Apps (update)

Operator association resolves misconception

An intervention by operator association Branschföreningen för Onlinespel's (BOS) will see previously removed gambling apps reinstated on the Apple Sweden App Store, BOS confirmed Tuesday.
The association said it had sent an "informative" letter to Apple explaining that the apps were not in breach of Swedish Law as was previously understood.
Gustaf Hoffstedt, secretary general of BOS said: "It is with great satisfaction we can now put this sad history behind us. Sweden may not discriminate against foreign companies. It has been confirmed repeatedly by both Swedish law and EU law."
"Now we can focus on shaping future gaming regulations constructively. Together with Parliament, the Government and the Gaming Board, we want to promote a non-discriminatory licensing system that treats everyone equally."
