This week Denmark politicians announced that they're going to be implementing new rules for non-profit lotteries, while also giving regulator Spillemyndigheden more power to crack down on match-fixing in sport.
The rules are being implemented in an effort to have groups hold non-profit bingo games or lotteries when the goal of funds generated go to a good cause. Winnings from those games won't be taxed.
The government also is giving Spillemyndigheden added powers when it comes to fighting match-fixing, with the regulator now able to require operators to report suspicious sportsbetting activity. The regulator also will have control of match-fixing fighting from Anti-Doping Denmark.
Regarding the legislation, Denmark's Taxation Minister Jeppe Bruus said, "The agreement is first and foremost a helping hand to the many voluntary associations around Denmark, who think that bingo and other lotteries are a good and cosy way to raise some money for a good cause.
"The rules become simpler and taxes on winnings are removed. With the agreement, we do away with a number of outdated rules that were a nuisance to many associations and open up a number of new opportunities and remove cumbersome requirements."
