Sweden’s gambling authority, Spelinspektionen, has responded to the government’s proposed 4 percent tax increase on Gross Gaming Revenue (GGR). The regulator is calling for careful monitoring of market developments and expressing concerns about the impact on the industry’s sustainability. This tax increase is seen as a way to enhance government funding and will be presented to parliament in 2024. However, there are worries about the channelisation rate, which is the shift from illegal operators to legal ones, and potential issues for the legislature. Spelinspektionen has also noted a recent downturn in the gaming market, raising questions about its future. The Swedish Trade Association, BOS, has strongly criticized the government’s lack of understanding and predicts a further decrease in channelisation. This is concerning as the government has set a target of 90 percent channelisation.
