Sweden is set to pass a bill later this year which will introduce an online licensing model in the country for the first time, with a planned introduction date of January 1, 2019.

Interest in the shape of the bill and its attached secondary legislation is intense, as is the speculation around the future of state-owned monopoly operator Svenska Spel — portions of which will shortly be competing on the open market.
