Sweden’s Spelinspektionen gaming regulator has reportedly levied fines totaling a little over $2 million against a pair of iGaming operators for allegedly breaking its strict regulations on sportsbetting.

According to a Thursday report from iGamingBusiness.com, the local ComeOn! subsidiary of Swedish iGaming operator, Cherry AB, was the hardest hit after being ordered to pay a penalty of approximately $980,000 for allowing two of its sites to offer wagers on sporting events in which some participants were under the age of 18.

Domains disciplined:

iGamingBusiness.com reported that the offending Snabbare.com and Hajper.com online sportsbetting brands were additionally punished to the tune of around $619,000 and $464,300 respectively while similar infractions saw the Legolas.bet domain from operator Legolas Invest Limited hit with a fine of about $10,300.

Strict surveillance:

Analogous violations saw Spelinspektionen dish out penalties against eight iGaming operators last month that totaled a little over $4.4 million while iGamingBusiness.com also reported that the most recent fines were calculated as representing about 0.1% of the offending sites’ revenues.

Soccer contraventions:

The penalized infractions from ComeOn! had taken place between January and May and had allegedly involved its Snabbare.com and Hajper.com brands offering odds on five international under-17 soccer matches alongside a single Swedish under-19 football game. For Legolas Invest Limited, the Swedish regulator determined that its Legolas.bet brand had provided markets in May concerning several under-17 volleyball competitions.

Additional actions:

Spelinspektionen used an official Wednesday press release (pdf) to declare that ComeOn! had blamed its shortcomings on a third-party supplier and associated ‘deficiencies in a filter logic’. The regulator stated that these problems had now been rectified while the operator had furthermore requested that the independent supplier ‘implement an action plan’ and employ a bespoke individual ‘to ensure that all betting complies with Swedish legislation.’
