Spelinspektionen, the Swedish Gambling Authority, has recently visited the UK Gambling Commission and Sportradar to discuss gambling trends and exchange experiences regarding industry regulation.

The regulator visited Sportradar for a demonstration of their services, where they showed how their collection and analysis of sports data can present trends regarding match-fixing in Sweden and globally.

Spelinspektionen continued its match-fixing focus when the authority visited the UKGC, exchanging gambling regulation experiences. The Commission showed the work of their national platform, which collaborates with various designated stakeholders to analyse and share suspected match-fixing information.

Both gambling authorities discussed illegal gambling during the meeting and the importance of close dialogue between authorities themselves to combat it.

The UKGC also shared the work it has done for the review of UK gambling regulation, while Spelinspektionen provided information on Sweden’s responsible gaming and mandatory deposit limit experiences.

Patrik Gustavsson, Head of the Operations Department at the Swedish Gambling Authority, added: “In this way, exchanging experiences with authorities in other countries is an important part of the work to create good conditions for a healthy and safe gambling market.”

Earlier this month, the UKGC’s Executive Director Tim Miller stated that it is “vital” that global gambling regulators work together as they all face the same risks and challenges.
