Lottoland Fined In Sweden Over Eurojackpot Bets

Lottoland has been fined and warned by the Swedish Gambling Authority (Spelinspektionen) for "serious" violations, including offering betting on Svenska Spel's Eurojackpot lottery without permission and not making clear that customers are making a bet, not buying a lottery ticket.

The Gibraltar-based company was fined 700,000 Swedish krona (SEK) (€65,000) for breaches that also included supplying online scratch cards, a facility not covered by its licence, the authority said on Wednesday.

Using tax data, the Swedish regulator projected Lottoland's annual revenue for this year to be SEK142m, which could have left it eligible for a SEK14.2m fine.
