Complete Your Applications Early And Properly, Says Swedish Online Gambling Regulator

By Brian Cullingworth, Last updated Jan 18, 2019

60 applications for regulated Swedish market set to open next year have been received

Sweden‘s chief gambling regulator has warned prospective applicants for licenses to operate in the liberalised market next year to complete their applications diligently and fully, and to submit them early.

Lotteriinspektionen chief Camilla Rosenberg revealed this week that a total of sixty applications have been received so far – 55 for online gambling licenses – but that regulators had noticed errors and omissions in some submissions which could delay the issue of licenses in time for the market opening early next year.

The regulator opened for applications on August 1 this year, and the first licenses could be issued by November.

In a statement this week, Rosenberg warned:

“A review of all applications shows that many gaming companies need to come up with comprehensive additions. We have begun to send out the request for completions and the gaming companies who do not submit completions within the specified time may not be licensed until January 1, 2019.”

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
