Swedish Gambling Authority Clamps Down On Lottery Promotions

Files injunctions against 39-internet domains

The Swedish gambling regulator Lotteriinspektionen has clamped down on thirty-nine unidentified operators accused of promoting lottery participation outside of the market.

According to the regulator, clickable graphics on the identified domains forward site visitors to lotteries organised outside the country flouting the Lottery Act where “it is prohibited to promote in a professional activity, or otherwise for the purpose of acquisition, participation in an inland lottery which is not permitted or a lottery organized outside the country.”

Lotteriinspektionen warned the injunctions may be accompanied by a financial penalty in accordance with law (1985: 206).

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.
