Gaming Association opposes limits on deposits
European Gaming and Betting Association urged European authorities not to limit the amount of deposits in online casinos. Thus, the organization reacted to the initiative of the Swedish regulator to set a maximum limit on replenishing an account in a casino within a week.

Many Swedes already play at unlicensed online casinos and additional bans could increase the popularity of such sites,” said EGBA Secretary General Maarten Hayer. casino at around $500 a week. The authorities justified the decision by protecting gamblers from additional financial losses, as Internet users began to spend more time in gambling.
