This is a decrease by 0.4 percent compared to 2019. In July 2020 the Swedish Government decided to set a mandatory max deposit rule of 5000 SEK ($590) per month and player. Session limits were also put in place to safeguard the players during the Corona Lockdowns. Despite this, we see that the number from 2019 has only declined by 0.4%.

During the last quarter of 2020, 6.8 billion SEK was earned by the Swedish Licensed Casinos. These numbers are not factual but a measure of the Swedish Tax Agency on pre decided gambling tax.
