"Debater: the Requirements for getting a license are too few and toothless"
"This is an opinion piece. It is the writer who stands for the views that are put forward in the text, not Against."
"the DEBATE. All know how it looks on the reklamteve when it is lönehelg. Casinoreklamen will never end, and they all say the same thing: it's fun, it's easy, go check on the cell phone, everyone can win! It is easy to understand how tempting it is. The common people know that the ”everyone can win” does not apply when they go to work on Monday."
"But it is never going to win in the long run. The game is rigged. The one who manage to win money on sports betting can suddenly become limited to wager small amounts, or is completely off of the gaming company. It'll simply not go on to win in the long term. Gaming companies are courting you with bonuses and the VIP treatment – as long as you lose. Gaming companies love their losers."
"Game about money can destroy the whole of existence. But it also destroys the sport"
"For many, it is difficult to manage the gambling. It is a particular problem when hushållskassan is thin already from the beginning. Access to fast text loans makes everything worse – especially when you want to quickly win back what you lost. With losses comes shame, anxiety, fights about money in the family and maybe an alcohol problem. Sometimes the need for quick money give rise to criminality."
"Game about money can destroy the whole of existence. But it also destroys the sport. For the gaming companies to make money you need to offer the games every minute of the day, which means that players are permitted to wager money on matches in lower leagues and often on the junioridrott. "
"It increases the risk of matchfixning, to deliberately manipulate the match results in order to fool the bookmakers. But also not the highest leagues and major competitions are spared."
"the Requirements for getting a license are too few and toothless"
"From 1 January privatised gambling on sports and online casinos in Sweden. Until now it has been forbidden for the private gaming companies that offer game – even if they managed to reach Swedish customers anyway. Now the gambling a market, among others. Only the Left party opposed it."
"Every gaming company wishing to operate in Sweden must be authorised by a licence. But the requirements for getting a license are too few and ineffective. It limits the ability to give bonuses, but there are obvious loopholes for other types of decoys. "
"the Bookmakers have to contact a player who has a risky gambling behaviour – but it is unclear how it is expected to help the player. Folkhälsomyndigheten warns that inadequate regulation can lead to increased problem gambling and, by extension, a more unequal health."
"As in all markets there is a risk that the regulations will be softened and will disappear in the long term"
"There is a move of classic american naivete in the new rules. As if you did not understand that it is a profit-maximizing billion dollar industry to let loose."
"The parties that carried out the privatisation mean that the state gaming monopoly was unsustainable, because the private gaming companies yet so easily able to reach clients from abroad. Now, the idea is to allow them, so that they in return can regulate them."
"It is a right for the declared strategy. It leaves a bitter taste in the mouth that the gaming companies broken into on the market by walking around the Swedish legislation: offer games despite our monopoly, advertise in spite of our prohibition. "
"Now they get that they wanted to: the gaming market is privatised. As in all markets there is a risk that the regulations will be softened and will disappear in the long term. Expect that companies will engage in intense lobbying for it."
"Interestingly enough, Norway has recently chosen a completely different path, and decided to defend the country's social gaming policy. Where blocked bookmakers on the internet through a so-called DNS blocking, which closes the path to the web sites. The banks may not carry over the player's money to or from private gaming companies."
"the Left party think that the Norwegian strategy had been worth looking at – which the Swedish spelutredningen not have done. "
"Gambling is not entertainment, but have serious social disadvantages. Gaming companies are publicly traded giants with profit maximization as the goal. "
"We would rather have a strong corporate social responsibility. When there is any profit, we can put reasonable limits on the availability and range and really help those who have problems. "
"We can meet the needs of people want to play, but to encourage it. It would make life better for many."
