Sweden’s SHL championship: Enjoying a game and getting the most out of it

12 Jul 2020 | eurohockey.com

There are a few reasons Ice Hockey has taken the world by storm in recent decades. Namely, the improvement of the sport and the refinement of the culture that surrounds and props it up.


The biggest sportsbooks in this day and age fully endorse Ice Hockey, and now is a perfect time to continue and learn more about this fast-paced and exciting sport.

Sweden's impact on the National Hockey League has come a long way since Ulf Sterner became the first Swede to play in an NHL game 46 years ago.

These days, Swedes are stars at every level of the NHL -- Nicklas Lidström was arguably the best defenseman since Bobby Orr. He and Daniel Alfredsson are among the longest-serving team captains in the NHL, and the Sedin twins -- Daniel and Henrik -- have taken turns in the past, winning the Hart and Art Ross trophies (Henrik in 2010, Daniel in '11). Lidstrom became the first European to captain a Stanley Cup winner in 2008 when he was one of seven Swedes on the Detroit Red Wings. And if Sweden’s impact has been in such a rise in the NHL, it’s because it has become such a giant in the homeland.

But more than that our fellow Swedes enjoy gambling on their matches, legal in the nordic country. To point it out: In 2018 the Swedish gambling markets’ total gross revenue was SEK 23,4 billion. In 2016, the total gross revenue was 23,1 billion. The Swedish Gambling Authority is the authority that has been given the task of ensuring the legality, safety, and reliability of the Swedish gaming and gambling market. They aim to provide consumers with the tools needed for fair gaming by maintaining a transparent and balanced gaming market in addition to reducing the potentially harmful social effects which gambling may entail. They explain this pop in Sports Gambling:

1)  Continued growth

2)  Fewer players play – but those who play, play more

3)  Fast technical development, the technology-dependency in the industry is increasing

4)  Changed consumer behavior, mobile platforms are growing, where you can easily find the best online casino

Every sport that has the capability for live-betting is better than those that can’t, in our humble opinion. Ice Hockey live-betting is just as intense and enjoyable as you can imagine.
There are several authorities and organizations that work in one way or another with the gambling industry including the Swedish Gambling Authority.
The legal framework for gambling regulation in Sweden consists of a large number of constitutions, such as the Lotteries Act, the Casino Act, and the Marketing Act.

Betting on Ice Hockey is always going to be one of the most active markets, as well as football and cricket. They both represent huge markets for the bookies. The packed fixture schedule and the ability to bet in-play, live stream, deploy betting strategies, and enjoy bonuses make this one of the most popular sub-sections of sports betting, certainly in North America, but more recently in the UK and Europe as well. This is perfect for the modern-day punter.
