Norsk Tipping Generates 4.5 Billion for Charity

Norwegian lottery group Norsk Tipping has announced that they've raised NOK 4.8 billion toward charitable causes for the year of 2018 as a whole.

The total is higher than the NOK 4.7 billion raised in 2017, and will go toward a variety of programs. 6.4% of the sum went toward gambling addictiopn services, while sport, humanitarian, and cultural initiatives made up the rest. The Norwegian Red Cross received NOK 254.3 million, while the Norwegian Society for Sea Rescue received NOK 156.9 million.

Norsk Tipping is owned by Norway's government and is sanctioned to provide a wealth of different betting services to their customers.

The news comes as the country's gaming regulator said that they'll begin blocking payments to unlicensed betting sites beginning next month.

Good on them, that's amazing! 👏
I wonder whether that is from separate fundraising or from a cut of the profits??

I'm not sure as well klaw, but either way they're doing their bit there and deserve a praise for that.
