Spillemyndigheden to Block 55 Gaming Sites

This story was published more than 3 years ago.

This week Denmark's gaming regulator was given the approval to block 55 gaming websites that are offering services to punters without the appropriate gaming license.

Spillemyndigheden gave their case on March 2nd at a hearing at the City Court, where they showed the domains were breaching national gaming rules by providing services without the appropriate gaming license. 23 of the sites are skins, but other sites that are to be blocked include King Billy Casino, Slot Joint, Easybet, and Dafabet. The sites will be blocked by sending the order to ISPs, who'll be compelled to restrict user access.

Commenting on the blocks Spillemyndigheden Director Anders Dorph said, "One of our most important tasks is to protect players from illegal gambling, at the same time, we must ensure that the providers who are licensed to offer games in Denmark can run their business under orderly conditions.

"The record high number clearly shows that there is a need for the targeted effort, and we will therefore maintain the increased focus in the future."

Thus far, Spillemyndigheden has blocked 145 different betting domains dating back to 2012.
