Foreign firms account for most new Swedish online gambling accounts

Friday 8 September 2017 | 12:00 CET | News
A total of 61 percent of all new gambling accounts set up in the past year have been registered with foreign companies such as Kindred (Unibet), Bet365 and Betsson, said consultancy Mediavision. Swedish ones such as ATG or state-owned Svenska Spel still make up the largest part of Sweden's betting market, though, it said. Mediavision's comments came as the sector prepared to gather for the Spelakademin conference in Visby from 07 to 08 September.
