The Swedish government gambling monopoly Svenske Spel was under futher pressure this week as Finance Minister Andrea Borg called for tighter regulation of the online poker games operated by the company.
Borg not only wants tighter controls; he has also vetoed Svenske Spel's global ambitions planned in collaboration with other state controlled gambling entities to form an international Internet poker network, reports Sveriges Radio.
Among other requirements, the minister has called for measures that clearly and regularly inform [Swedish] players of their total winnings and losses.
