Sweden's Online Gambling Laws - is Poker Legal?

Online poker is legal in Sweden, with state owned site Svenska Spel formed in 1997. Users can still access and play on .com rooms

  • Status of regulation:   Regulated
  • Tax on Players:   Dot.eu sites (licensed in the EU) are tax-free, winnings on unlicensed sites are liable for 30% tax. PokerStars.eu was formed to avoid these taxes
  • Tax on Operators:   36% on local operators
  • Extra Rake:   None
  • Segregation:   None - Swedish players share tables with players in other countries in the same combined playerpool.

Swedish Republic Poker Deposit & Cashout Methods

E-wallets Skrill (formerly Moneybookers) and Neteller are preferred by many grinders as they avoid fees and taxes associated with banks and gambling transactions, and don't require you to share banking information with poker sites.

Neteller Ewallet - Poker
Swedish Currency - Krona (SEK)

Is Sweden in the PokerStars.com Playerpool?

Yes! As shown in the table above Swedish players are not segregated from the rest of the international PokerStars playerpool (in the way e.g. France, Italy and Spain are).

The domain name is PokerStars.eu but winnings are tax-free and the game experience is identical to the dot.com client, same players, stakes, deposit bonus, Supernova VIP program etc. Plan your yearly VPP goals with Rakeback.com's exclusive PokerStars Rakeback Calculator.

Online Poker In Sweden - Do I Need a VPN?

No. There is currently no internet censorship applied to online poker sites in Sweden. As such a VPN is not necessary. However if you experience difficulties downloading poker clients in the future or while travelling outside Sweden, follow the guidelines below:

Other countries in Europe's regulated online poker market may censor primary domains of poker rooms. While the poker site's domain may be down, preventing new players from downloading the client, those who have already downloaded the software can still log in and play unrestricted. The sites are based offshore (e.g. Malta / Gibraltar) with EU licenses - balances and cashouts remain safe despite one country's internet censorship.

Overplay VPN for Online Poker PlayersIf you are unable to download a poker client simply use a cheap VPN service such as StrongVPN or HideMyAss to do so. After install it is no longer necessary to use a VPN although some grinders continue to do so if playing over public wifi, for extra security. Site reps have confirmed on the forums that VPNs are not prohibited, with the exception of VPN use to play online from the US.
