Hi everybody, I’m Monica Medvall, Svenska Spel, I’m working with CSR Strategy and have a special corporate assignment with International relations.
The Swedish state is the owner of Svenska Spel and we are the tool to maintain the consumer protection especially regarding responsible gaming
5.500 retailers, 2.000 businesspartners in restaurants and bingohalls
6 sales channels; landbased channels as retailers, VLT, CC, subscriptions and internet and mobiles and tablets
This background in the Swedish gaming market and that we really want to be healthy and sustainable and differentiate us. We have made a huge change on the responsibility side, which feels fantastic and is something I'm proud of. It's a matter of turning towards a more healthy and sustainable development. Of course, we will work on our revenues and, of course, we will be commercial. But it has to be healthy. We have gone from a strong sales focus to a distinct focus on responsibility. We will now continue on this way.

I will describe shortly three boxes
My gambling habits In april we launched Playscan for all our players. Do you know what Playscan is?
We can now follow our customers behavior and the player can keep track of the game and test his/her gaming habits. So far this year we have had 250.000 unique visitors in mobile and on internet.
You can test your gambling habits – with a self-test. So far this year we have had 50.000 self-tests.
If you play in a way that can lead to problems, you get a warning about the increased risk. Green means that you seem to have a good behavior on your game. Red or yellow can mean you start getting risky gambling habits. You also get tips on how to keep your gambling at a moderate level
Recently we had an evalution from Dr Richard Woods that confirmed that Playscan is an effective tool to follow up gaming behavior. Playscan has a positive effect on risk-player. Players with increased risk and connected to the tool decreases their gambling! Similar behavior was also observed player with a high risk for developing gambling

We have asked 1.000 people between 18-75 years in an online panel. Which operator is considered to be the leader in RG in Sweden and they said
Over half of Swedes think that is the leading company referring responsible gaming in Sweden. It’s a huge gap to the next on 3%. And is worrying that 25% don’t know and 14% says none.
