The Story

Sweden’s Skatteverket tax agency reported a new record for its gaming tax revenue as it collected nearly SEK1.84b (US$190.7m), twice the sum that the government projected, during the first six months of the year. While the government is happy as it collected more money, Sweden’s online licensees – including the state-run Svenska Spel former gambling monopoly – have almost uniformly reported significant declines in their Swedish revenue. The 86 licensed companies in the country’s new gaming regime experience an 18% cut from their gaming revenue and collectively pay SEK67m for their licenses.
