The Spelinspektionen, the Swedish Gambling Authority, has released the figures from its Q3 report.

The total gross gambling revenue (GGR) from operators with a Swedish gambling licence totalled SEK 6.7bn ($6.1m) in this quarter, representing a decrease of 1% when compared year-on-year.

Commercial online gambling, represented by standard online casinos, created SEK 4.3bn, a decrease of 1.3%.

As for state-run casino games, those provided through Casino Cosmopol accounted for SEK 132m, a decrease of 5.7%.

The state lottery and slot machine figures were lumped together for SEK 1.4bn, a measly decrease of 0.1%.

Meanwhile, gambling for ‘public purposes’ and national lotteries were also grouped together, creating a turnover of SEK 822m, a 2.2% increase YoY but an 8.3% decrease when compared to Q2 2023.

Games for public purposes, such as bingo halls, created SEK 49m in GGR, the exact same amount as Q3 the previous year.

Finally, the land-based commercial gaming accrued SEK 81m in turnover, a 30% increase.

In addition, during Q3 of this year, over 99,000 people were suspended from all gambling activities through Spelpaus, marking a 4% increase.

Despite the Swedish gambling industry taking a hit at the start of this year, it seems like the figures are finally starting to catch up to those reported in Q3 and Q4 of 2022.

It’s been a busy year for the Spelinspektionen, with its latest proposals towards the Gambling Act including restrictions on how to fund gambling - such as taking out loans or using credit cards.
