The Association of the Online Gambling Industry of Sweden opposed the monopoly position in the gambling market of the country of the state operator Svenska Spel, which deals with lotteries, land-based casinos and bets. Because of this company, representatives of the gambling business in Sweden found themselves in unequal conditions, the association noted. The organization said that the assets of Svenska Spel should be put up for auction, since the state should not operate in a competitive market, and that the restructuring of this operator is necessary for the business community to ensure that the state is able to independently regulate the gambling market. My Lucky Story wrote that the Dutch authorities supported the maintenance of the monopoly of the operator Lotto BV on state lotteries. Earlier it became known about the investigation of the activities of the Russian casino “Shambhala” (gambling zone of Primorye), conducted by employees of the Federal Antimonopoly Service. Recall that a court in Germany ruled that the monopoly on the lottery in the country was illegal.
