BRUSSELS (Reuters) – The European Commission started legal action against Sweden on Thursday for failing qq188 to change its rules on online betting and poker games which it said breach EU law on the free movement of services.

The European Union’s executive referred Sweden to Europe’s highest court in two separate cases related to its restriction of gambling license to domestic and state-owned operators only.

„Sweden is referred to the Court of Justice for imposing restrictions on the organization and promotion of online betting services in a way which is inconsistent with EU law,“ the Commission said in a statement.

„Changes to the Swedish gambling law in order to make it compliant with EU law have long been envisaged but never implemented.“
