Online Lottery Laws in Sweden
Currently, some of the available lottery games in Sweden, such as the Sweden Lotto, Viking Lotto or Eurojackpot, can be played not only within Sweden or Scandinavia but all over the world as well. Moreover, in accordance with the new Swedish online lottery laws, other online lottery sites will also be available, offering better jackpots.
In 2018, local lotteries - the state-owned Svenska Spel and charity ones - saw a drop in their sales, with most of them being negative. On the contrary, online lotto news sites report that international operators represented almost 30% of the Swedish market last year. In this regard, the new regulations mirror the trends of the market.
Among the many benefits, this liberalization has already prompted online gambling sites to expand their portfolio of games to the lottery as well, which will bring more opportunities to gamblers.
Online Lottery Payment Methods in Sweden
Swedish players might use many payment methods. It is important, however, to bear in mind that some payment methods have different processing periods. Still, the most common debit and credit methods such as VISA, MasterCard are fully accepted. Diners Club International is also accepted.
Additionally, alternative payment methods can also be used for deposits. Among them are Giropay, Nordea, Zimpler, PaySafeCard, and Trustly. And, in order to withdraw winnings as well, Skrill, Neteller are two good options that gamblers can use.
Online Lottery Sites Accepting SEK
Many online operators in Sweden accept the local currency. This gives them the opportunity to be more appealing to the Swedish market, as players feel more confident playing in online lottery sites accepting SEK. And this way, they are fully aware of how much their winnings and online lotto bonuses are worth.
