Swedish Gambling Association Joins EGBA

Swedish Gambling Association Joins EGBA 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.
  • It would be nice if their were EU wide regulatory standards that would eliminate the need for licensing by individual countries. In this way the market could be more free for players to choose which casinos they prefer instead of the choices imposed on them by their individual countries gambling authorities. In Denmark for example many of the top casino's won't pay for a Danish license and therefore exclude all Danish players. This is not an open market, hopefully business associations like the one mentioned in this article can help the market evolve and become more open to all everywhere in the EU.
