Recently, Swedish lawmakers has begun consultations on reducing the deposit limit for online casino players in the country, aiming to lower the limit to 4,000 Swedish kronor, or about $439.
The consultation was initiated due to the higher level of Covid-19 infection, especially the Omicron variant. This is not the first time that a deposit limit has been introduced because of the Covid-19 pandemic, although previously the limits were 5,000 SEK. Lawmakers initially said the restrictions would be a temporary measure to keep gambling problems from escalating while players were stuck at home, but they’ve been in effect for over a year and a half.
While the deposit limitation seems like a good common sense solution, it was noted that nothing prevents players from registering and playing on different sites, thereby avoiding the limitation. Country gaming regulator Spelinspektionen said they have noticed an increase in the number of accounts the average player has registered since the restrictions were imposed.
The Omicron variant is spreading all over the world, and situation is no better in Europe. Restrictions are coming into force in Sweden that require employers to work from home, use vaccine passports at major events and not gather more than eight people.
