Supreme Administrative Court of Sweden considers changing penalty fee calculation for gambling operators
The Supreme Administrative Court of Sweden is contemplating a shift in penalty fee calculation for gambling operators, potentially basing it on gross gaming revenue (GGR)
The Supreme Administrative Court of Sweden has issued a statement suggesting that penalty fees for gambling operators should be based on gross gaming revenue (GGR) rather than gross turnover, a position advocated by the Swedish Trade Association for Online Gambling (BOS).
This development may have implications for past and future decisions, potentially impacting the penalty imposed on Genesis Global for failing to integrate its white-label brands into the self-exclusion system, and an investigation into the matter is already in progress.
BOS has welcomed the decision, asserting that penalty fees should be calculated based on GGR, as it represents the funds available to gambling companies, while the remainder should rightfully belong to the gamblers.
