Te Swedish Ministry of Finance has proposed that its gambling marketing should no longer be characterised by 'moderation' but 'special moderation' with amendments to advertising laws due to take effect on July 1, 2022. Te amendments will class gambling in the same way as alcohol in relation to advertising due to the risk of addiction. Marketing for alcohol 'must not be intrusive, include outreach or urge people to use alcohol.' Te Swedish Trade Association for Online Gambling Branschföreningen för Onlinespe (BOS) rejected the proposal. “Swedish-licensed gambling operators have since a peak in 2018-2019 halved their advertising purchases. I do not understand how low the investments in marketing must be for the government to be satisfied," said the association's Gustaf Hoffstedt. "Gaming advertising from Swedish licensed companies fulfills an important function for a safe and secure gaming market.”
