The Swedish online gambling trade association, Branschforeningen for Onlinespel (BOS), is the newest affiliate member of the European Gaming and Betting Association (EGBA).
“For many years, we have been following the important work of the EGBA in Brussels,” said Gustaf Hoffstedt, Secretary General of BOS. “If we are to achieve full effect in the EU-related work we have to muster our forces, and this is where EGBA comes into play.
“Just like BOS unites many actors in Sweden, EGBA unites many under the EU-canopy.”
He added, “With our affiliated membership, we want to pull our weight, to the benefit of the bigger picture but also the national gambling market in our own Swedish jurisdiction.”
“After previously welcoming the Gibraltar Betting and Gaming Association (GBGA), the EGBA is pleased to be joined by our second affiliate member association,” commented Maarten Haijer, Secretary General of EGBA. “It shows the importance of working together to ensure that Europe moves towards an attractive regulated market with high consumer protection standards.”
BOS represents EU licensed companies operating in Sweden with 18 members including Betfair, Unibet, Betsson, Mr Green & Co. and Paf with associated members Bet365, Bonnier Gaming, Evolution Gaming, Pokerstars, William Hill, Net Entertainment, Nyx Gaming, Ladbrokes, Prima Network, ComeOn, Gamesys, Cherry and Leo Vegas.
