The corresponding loss limit shall apply when playing on vending machines. 2) It must be mandatory for players to set limits on the playing time when playing at online casinos and vending machines. 3) Bonuses offered by licensees who provide online casinos and vending machines may amount to a maximum of SEK 100 (and previously a maximum of 1 bonus per licensing company).
