An A-z On Deciding On Crucial Aspects For
The case started in September 2013 after Lotteriinspektionen issued orders and slapped a fine of SEK45k (US$4,940) on two media outlets, Aftonbladet and Expressen, on account of their publication of links to international gambling sites. The media outlets challenged the order, arguing that the publication of clickable links does not fall under advertising and it is a matter of their freedom of expression. The Court of Appeal ruling states that the sites’ links to international gambling operators were of a “pronounced commercial nature” and thus ineligible for protection under freedom of expression laws. The Court further ruled that the advertising restrictions detailed in Sweden’s 1994 Gambling Act did not contravene European Union law. Swedish media outlets enjoyed record revenue from gambling advertisements in 2017, very little of which was spent promoting the (for now) state-run gambling monopoly Svenska Spel. But Lotteriinspektionen has become increasingly bold in warning local media outlets to curb their dealings with international gambling operators. Lotteriinspektionen director general Camilla Rosenberg said the regulator assumes that “anyone who violates the promotion ban by linking to or promoting foreign gaming now ends with [the Court of Appeal ruling].” In June, Swedish legislators approved a new Gambling Act that will take effect on 1 January 2019. The new rules will for the first time allow international operators to apply for Swedish online licenses and will further restrict advertising with operators not holding a local license.

Many of the people who buy enough lottery tickets to actually win are addicted gamblers. As those who attend Gamblers Anonymous meetings know, the worst thing that can happen to them is to win, not lose, money by gambling. When gamblers win, they take that money and double down on their addiction. A college friend, a severely addicted gambler, won a million-dollar lottery in her state. Soon she was jetting out to visit me in Las Vegas every month, gambling, taking in shows, eating expensive meals and buying designer clothes. To maintain her gambling habit she was borrowing against her future payouts, and she got so deeply in debt that she remortgaged her home without telling her husband and sold her car.
