Norway to Look Into Amending Gambling Act

Norway's gaming laws may be changing, as the country's Ministry of Culture and Gender Equality announced that they're launching a consultation on the new Gambling Act, which has been proposed by lawmakers.

The new Gambling Act will consolidate the previous Gambling Act, Lottery Act, and Totalizator Act, providing new rules, fees for those that break rules, fines for unlicensed operators targeting Norwegian players, and only allowing the gambling monopolies Norsk Tipping and Norsk Rikstoto to offer online gaming.

The draft legislation is currently undergoing comment from those in the industry, with the comment period ending on August 5th.

If the draft legislation is approved, it would be set for implementation on January 1st of next year.
