Danish Gambling Authority


 

Denmark is certainly not new to the concept of a gambling regulatory body, with the first in the country formed in the late 1800s. But this does not mean that the Danish regulatory body is outdated, there has been many changes in the last century plus in terms of regulation in the country, to match the changes within the gambling world itself.

 

With the huge increase in popularity of gambling, and especially online gambling throughout Europe in recent years, the need to evolve regulations with the times has become more pressing, and Denmark have worked hard to remain at the forefront of it.

The latest such change occurred in 2010, when the Danish Government introduced The Gambling Act. The Gambling Act clearly sets out guidelines for both sides of the gambling industry, players and service providers, seeking to ensure that regulations are made clear. The 2010 Gambling Addict resulted in Denmark becoming the most regulated gambling destination out of all Scandinavian countries.

 

The Danish Gambling Authority

 

Upon its inception, the Danish Gambling Authority was empowered to oversee all forms of gambling within Denmark, including, but not limited to, horse racing, sports betting, dog racing, betting machines, lotteries, and online gambling.

 

There has been little variation in terms of land based gambling over the last few decades, but online gambling is a very different story. The huge jump in accessibility to the internet, and the subsequent equally large rise in the popularity of online gambling meant that laws had to be put in place to protect Danish citizens, and ensure that taxes were collected.

 

The Danish Gambling Authorities main responsibilities are coordinating with the Danish tax authority on all tax matters, licensing, compliance, the setting of policy and regulation, and the resolution of issues between players and online gambling sites.

 

Regulations

 

The regulations put in place under the 2010 Gambling Act include:

 

  • All licensing applications to be submitted, and applications fees to be paid
  • Full background checks for all providers
  • Full financial review for all providers
  • All providers must have a dedicated bank account operating within Denmark
  • All service providers must provide suitable protection for problem gamblers and minors
  • All games provided must be monitored and certified
  • The primary infrastructure of all sites must be within Danish borders
  • All sites must have and maintain the ability to meet all obligations to winners.
  • All financial and account information for sites must be audited periodically by an independent, unbiased firm.
  • All sites must be registered with the Danish Tax Authority, and the Danish Tax Authority to facilitate payment of duties or taxes on all profits gained through gaining operations
  • All sites must have adequate security measures in place to protect the confidentiality of players and of all financial transaction data

 

Due to the number of regulations that the Gambling Act puts in place, Denmark is not only regarded as one of the safest jurisdiction in Scandinavia, but across Europe as a whole.
