Sweden online gambling losts 10% of its gamblers

By Sophie Couard

The share of Swedish gamblers on the internet has not changed in comparison to the 2017 results.

Although the Swedish online gambling market was fully regulated on January 1st, 2019, a study commissioned by the regulator last year showed that the proportion of the population participating in gambling had already fallen by 10% over the last five years.

A decrease of 10% over 5 years

The survey conducted in October 2018, before the January 1st 2019 regulation of the Swedish market, revealed that 66% of the 1,582 respondents said they had played at least once in the previous year. This rate did not change in comparison to the 2017 results. However, this number was 10% less compared to the results of 2013, which at that time revealed that 76% of players had played at least once.


Players are more careful

Compared to the study results of 2013, however, the number fell by 10%.

The most popular site among Swedish players was Svenska Spel, which was used by 60% of the players. It was also determined that, among other things, 59% of players set a budget online and 17% set a time limit. However, complete self-exclusion tools were rarely used on the other side, with only 3% of players using this option.
