Reliable sources tell Reuters news agency that the investigating panel is likely to advise the scrapping of the monopoly system.
Quoting reliable and knowledgeable sources Wednesday, the Reuters news agency reported that the panel tasked by the Swedish government to investigate and report on online gambling is set to deliver its report this week, and that it will recommend that the state gambling monopoly be radically changed to a system where online gambling companies can apply for licensing and pay taxes in a regulated market.
"The special investigator leading the review, Hakan Hallstedt, will recommend that online gambling firms pay a tax of 18% on their gross gaming revenue, said the source, who had reviewed the proposal ahead of its presentation on Friday," Reuters reported.
"The proposal would aim to ensure that the percentage of licensed and tax-generating gambling amount to 90% of the Swedish market.
