Denmark Will Launch Electronic ID for Gambling

This story was published more than 1 year ago.

This week Denmark's gaming regulator Spillemyndigheden announced that they're going to be introducing a new MitID system to replace the NemID system used to verify identities for online betting.

NemID has been the standard for identity verification for the country since 2010, which allows customers to log into banking and verify identities for online gambling. This will all be changing to the new MitID platform, which will bring with it new features and security enhancements.

All licensed betting operators in Denmark will have to move to the new system, although there will be a transition time to allow for compliance.

The product was announced in 2020 and was supposed to be implemented in 2021, but implementation has been delayed until now.
