Default Any poker in Scandinavia?

I recently heard that any kind of wagering was illegal in Iceland (doh!) where I was planning on vacationing next. Terrible. What about Norway, Sweden, and Denmark? I know the Scandinavian Open on the EPT was held in Denmark, but can anyone give casino/game recommendations for these countries?

Thank you much.

However, the Swedish casino link is timing out. What city is it located in? Do you know of any other casinos in Sweden?

There aren't enough poker players in Sweden to fill a table.

What?

I once sat at a .5/1 Stud table at Prima where 4/7 of the players were from Linkoping

Prima is friggin full of scandis.

Gambling where the house earns profit is banned in Norway, so no casinos here [img]/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]. Both Sweden and Denmark have a few though.

The websites don't mention stakes (at least not in English). Has anyone been to any of these casinos? I get the feeling that the dress code at the Cosmopol means I can't afford to play there. Hard to imagine having to dress up for a Foxwoods $4-8 game.

Rav, where in Norway are you from?
