Swedish Gambling Authority License
The Swedish Gambling Authority or SGA is an expert authority on gambling and lottery issues. The authority is in charge of ensuring that the gaming and gambling market is lawful, secure, and trustworthy. We grant lottery permits and are in charge of the general management and monitoring of gambling and lottery operations in Sweden.
The Ministry of Finance controls the SGA, and its Board is nominated by the Government. The Director General oversees the operations and serves on the Board.
The SGA exercises its commission under the Lotteries Act (1994:1000), the Act on arrangements for certain gaming machines (1982:636) and the Casino Act (1999:355).
