Online gambling operator L & L Europe Limited in Sweden was fined for sending promotional material to self-excluded players following the reorganization of the local online gambling market in January last year.
The Swedish gambling regulator Spelinspektionen reportedly announced this week that it had imposed a fine on L & L Europe in the amount of SEK 600,000 (approx. $ 60,000) for violating self-exclusion rules, which are part of its obligations as a locally licensed operator. L & L Europe has also received a warning from Spelinspektionen that any further violations will be dealt with more severely.
L & L Europe is a Malta-based online gambling company that operates a multi-brand portfolio of online casinos. The operator received a license from Spelinspektionen at the end of 2018 and was able to enter the Swedish market shortly after its reorganization. Besides the Swedish Gambling Authority, L & L EUROPE also has licenses from the Gambling Games and Commission on Gambling Britain, which means that its multi-brand portfolio is available on some major markets in Europe.
During the investigation of activities & L EUROPE After the liberalization of the Swedish gambling market, SpelinSpektionen found that the operator did not fulfill the rules relating to its compulsory participation in the Swedish self-slip program. According to the Swedish Gambling Act, all local gambling operators must connect to Spelpaus.SE, the register of self-slipping of the country to ensure that their services are provided socially responsible, and that they offer customers the opportunity to disconnect from all gambling options if they believe that they can develop dependence on gambling or other problems associated with such games.
