Spelinspektionen renews Rosenberg leadership until 2026

The government of Sweden has extended Camilla Rosenberg’s tenure as Director General of Gambling Inspectorate Spelinspektionen until 31 October 2026.

Rosenberg will continue to serve as leader of Spelinspektionen, a position she has held since 2017, when she was placed in charge of Lotteriinspektionen – Sweden’s former lottery inspectorate.

In her duties, Rosenberg oversaw Lotteriinspektionen’s transition to Spelinspektionen, the gambling authority for Sweden’s new marketplace, which was relaunched in 2019, regulating online gambling services.  

Under her tenure, Spelinspektionen has expanded its resources monitoring all Swedish licensed operators and has been placed in charge of Spelpaus – Swedish gambling centralised self-exclusion scheme.

“It feels good to be able to continue working on launching the various parts of the reform and taking the continued important steps for a well-functioning Swedish gambling market”- read a statement, issued on behalf of Rosenberg.

From 1 July, Spelinspektionen has been granted a range of new regulatory powers to combat unlicensed gambling activities.

Of significance, the inspectorate will be able to request direct information from payment service providers (PSPs) on transactional data.

As such, Spelinspektionen will be able to sanction direct payment blocks on PSP should it deem that systems have been used to facilitate transactions with unlicensed businesses.

Further regulatory developments saw the government agree to increase the Inspectorate’s operating budget by SEK 2.4m (€200,000), to be allocated towards expanding its monitoring and integrity resources.
