Svenska Spel, the Swedish operator, has reintroduced remote staking for its games, in face of the pandemic.
Carolina Swaffer, head of retail and customer service, announced the move this week. “It is for people such as the elderly who cannot get to play directly through an agent.” The company’s weekly Lotto series, for example, will now be available through a “courier.”
“We removed this ability some years ago and received many letters expressing sadness that it was no longer available. But with gaming terminals now offering far more secure verification of ID, we can reintroduce it.”
The customer writes a warrant giving the right to play using a proxy form from an agent or downloaded.
