The operator association Branschföreningen för Onlinespel’s (BOS) has taken steps to reinstate gambling apps in the Apple Sweden App Store.
BOS claims to have sent an “informative” letter to Apple with explanation why such apps were not in violation of Swedish Law.
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.”
