Svenska Spel Shuts Down its Casino Cosmopol Properties

Reading Time: < 1 minute


Swedish gambling operator Svenska Spel has temporarily shut down its four Casino Cosmopol properties, following the government measures to combat the spread of Coronavirus.

Swedish authorities have banned all gatherings of more than 50 people. This left Svenska Spel with no option than closing down its Casino Cosmopol facilities in Stockholm, Gothenburg, Malmö and Sundsvall.

“We follow the authorities’ recommendations closely and have seen it as part of our responsibility to keep the community going by keeping our casinos open. We have followed the limit of a maximum of 500 people and other restrictions that currently apply to restaurant operations. With the new restrictions, it is now necessary to temporarily close all our casinos. We hope to welcome our guests back as soon as the situation changes,” Patrik Hofbauer, President and Chief Executive of Svenska Spel, said.
