Age limit

Gambling research shows that children and youth more easily develop problems with gambling, especially when spending time in environments involving gambling during their younger years. One of the reasons for this is that the brains of children are not yet fully developed, making it difficult for them to do probability assessments.

Research also shows that children growing up in an environment where adults find gambling important, to a greater extent develop an unhealthy attitude towards gambling as they grow older. Children should therefore be kept away from gambling. We have a responsibility to prevent minors from participating in gambling, which means:

  • You must be 18 years old to gamble at Svenska Spel, except at Casino Cosmopol where the age limit is 20 years.
  • Our gambling retailers are forbidden to provide gambling for anyone under the age of 18.
  • Our sales representatives must ask for ID when they suspect that someone who wants to gamble is under the age of 25.
  • Our retailers are not allowed to provide gambling to anybody over the age of 18, if they have reason to believe that they are gambling on behalf of a minor.
  • The age limits for our games also apply to anyone under the age of 18 in their guardian’s company.
  • Our marketing guidelines state that marketing must not be aimed directly at children and youth under the age of 18.
  • We conduct ongoing test purchases with retailers and partners, who may lose their authorization if they fail to pass the test.
