This week Denmark's gaming regulator Spillemyndigheden announced the blocking of 25 online betting sites that have been offering services in the country without a gaming license.
The move will see internet service providers in the country required to block access to the sites, which include 10 unique domains and 15 different skin sites. The affected sites include 1xBet, Nordic Casino, Orient Express Casino, La Fiesta Casino, Ramses Casino, and Cashpot Casino, among others. The decision was given the go ahead by the Copenhagen City Court, and will go into effect shortly.
Speaking about the blacklisting Spillemyndigheden director Birgitten Sand said, "We use our authority to block websites on an ongoing basis. We do this to protect the gaming providers who are actually authorised to offer games in Denmark, but also to protect the players.
"Here we are focusing in particular on sites that offer skin betting, as they often target children and adolescents under the age of 18."
