A Swedish survey shows that users of licensed casinos and illegal websites are most attracted to bonuses. According to a study commissioned by the country’s regulator, almost a third of local players launch online slots at least once a quarter.
The information is confirmed by an official source. It was Spelinspektionen, the national gambling regulator. The survey reflects the behavior patterns of adult Swedes who prefer online entertainment.
Data collection firm SKOP invited 10,994 people aged 18 and over to participate in the study. Of these, 4,408 people answered the companies.
According to the survey, 28%, or 1251 people, said they play online slots at least once a quarter. At the same time, 26% reported that they launch slots once a month, and 15% spin the reels weekly.
Most Swedes prefer licensed sites. Only 8% said they played on an illegal site. Of these, 6% did it intentionally, and 2% simply did not know about the current status of the casino.
The researchers questioned whether all of these respondents were actually playing on unregulated sites. People were asked to name illegal operators they visited, and several people named fully licensed casinos. According to Spelinspektionen, only a few of them are regulated gaming sites with a local license to operate.
Meanwhile, when asked how exactly the respondents find a particular casino, the majority of respondents (36%) answered that they received a hint from another user. At the same time, 27% suggested that they followed the advertising recommendations.
As for why some people choose to play on unlicensed platforms, the most common answer was the lucrative bonus offers. Others said they chose illegals because they were blocked on Spelpaus. This is a local self-exclusion service used by about 9% of the country’s gaming population.
Recall that PlayStar gained access to the Indiana market in partnership with Caesars Entertainment.
