Betsson Ordered to Refund Gambling Addict’s Losses in Landmark Ruling

The Swedish Patent and Market Court of Appeal ruled in a landmark ruling that popular betting business Betsson must reimburse all losses suffered by a plaintiff with a gambling disease. This historic decision has important ramifications and is consistent with comparable legal proceedings in other European countries.

The court’s decision requires Betsson to pay the user back for all of their past platform expenses as well as further damages for psychological suffering. The lawsuit claims that even though Betsson was aware of his problem gambling situation, he continued to utilize aggressive marketing strategies, such offering incentives on a regular basis. Interestingly, there was little legal consequence available at the time because these activities took place before Betsson had its Swedish license.

The decision sets a precedent for future claims from other victims, according to legal expert Magnus Rydeving, who provides counseling to people affected by addiction. He claims there might be significant financial ramifications for Betsson, possibly in the hundreds of millions of krona range. A significant obstacle for Betsson is indicated by Rydeving’s emphasis that this case may be only a small portion of future legal actions.

“It’s hundreds of millions of krona, and that’s solely what I know about. Then, of course, there’s much more out there.” — Magnus Rydeving

Given the potential for several lawsuits to take advantage of this decision, Betsson faces a significant time and resource commitment. As harmed parties pursue legal action, the company’s status and image might be severely damaged. Although Betsson still has the right to file an appeal with the Swedish Supreme Court, the firm has not yet made its intentions known, thus it is unclear what the possible implications of this legal precedent may be.
