Sweden’s new online gambling operators might shed their capability to market their items entirely if the government remembers of new survey results.

A brand-new study by Swedish market researchers Sifo reveals majority (53%) of Swedes think gambling advertising ought to be prohibited. Include the other 30% who a minimum of partly agree with that statement as well as the future of Swedish gambling advertising looks downright stark certainly.

The survey’s other questions located similarly pejorative sights, with 76% agreeing totally with tightening up the regulations for wagering advertising and also an extra 16% at least partially in agreement. And also 87% agreed totally with the idea that there was far way too much betting advertising and marketing, with an added 10% at the very least partially concurring.
