Spooniker and Swedish regulator court battle.


Spooniker has reversed a ban handed out by Swedish regulator Spelinspektionen. The company is a part of operator Kindred Group.

Spelinspektionen claimed Spooniker had approved its users to deposit more than the SEK 5,000 (£423) limit.

Swedish regulations do not allow operators to allow players to deposit more than the limit when gambling online.

Regulators introduced the deposit limit in the last year. They designed the limit to protect players. It also eliminates problem gambling during the Covid-19 pandemic. It was due to last only six months. Now it extended to June.

The regulator felt Spooniker was violating these gaming liability measures. And ordered Spooniker to discontinue the break.

However, Kindred claimed it allowed players to set their limit. And those who set a limit above the limit were only using betting services.

Spelinspektionen believed this was a loophole. It disregarded the regulation. Players could set a limit higher than SEK 5,000. And then can reduce it to get entry to online games.

But an Administrative Court in Sweden ordered in Kindred’s favor. The court stated the law only refers to transfers made for online casinos.

The court ruled that the gaming regulator had no basis for a prohibition. And they have revoked the decision.

Spelinspektionen said in a statement we could appeal the verdict.
