Danish Gaming Operators Get 5 Year License Extension

This story was published more than 11 years ago.

Five local and twenty foreign online gaming operators have been awarded a five year extension of their gaming licenses by the Danish Gambling Authority.

The move also comes as the DGA restricted the licenses of nine other operators by capping their revenues to 1 million Danish kroner per year (roughly £100,000).

The DGA also announced that they believe they have been able to effectively control unlicensed and illegal gaming sites by blocking the ISPs of offending casinos.

Commenting on the matter, Danish Gambling Authority Head of Legal Tina R. Olsen said: “The scope of illegal websites in Denmark is estimated to be rather limited. The fact that 20 illegal websites have been blocked in 2012 illustrates that the Danish Gambling Authority performs its obligation to monitor the Danish gambling market in order to protect both consumers and the legal operators on the market."
