    The Government today adopted the Bill ‘A re-regulated gambling market’. The proposal will mean introducing a new gambling act and a licence system. "Unregulated gambling has taken over and gambling is used in criminal activities. It is 14 years since the first of a line of gambling inquiries was appointed. It is now time for us to move from words to action and regain control of the Swedish gambling market," says Minister for Public Administration Ardalan Shekarabi.
