Every year the Swedish gambling monopoly serves as a significant source of income for the government. This income is later distributed by the government on various areas for the common good. The question is wheather the state is allowed to preserve this lucrative

Also is it enough to claim that the monopoly exists to protect the citizens, and thus escaping the conditions of EC-law, and its struggle to harmonize trade between the member states? This thesis describes the Swedish gambling monopoly and its relationship with EC-law. The purpose is to analyze the monopoly to discover wheather its consistent with the critera set by EC-law regarding state trade monopolies, or if the Swedish government is in
violation of EC-law with the sole purpose of keeping the large amounts of money generated by the gambling market for itself. Also taken into account is the impending structure change as Svenska spel, the largest gambling company on the market, introduces
casino and poker games online. Will this distance the Swedish regulations further from what EC-law states as acceptable behaviour? Both European and Swedish practice will be presented in order to give the reader insight into the rules and regulations stipulated by EC
regarding gambling monopolies. This accompanied by doctrine, will be used to analyze wheather or not the Swedish gambling monopoly is in violation of EC-law. (Less)
