Denmark Wins Bingo Case

Denmark's gaming regulator has won a court case that saw an unnamed company that had been offering bingo-style games in the country illegally.

Spillemyndigheden had conducted an investigation into the company after they found the group was offering both bingo and banko games. The country has a gambling monopoly on both types of games, which are run through the state-owned agency Danske Spil. The case was heard by a local court in the town of Odense on February 2nd. After the hearing, the company was found to have breached the country's gaming laws.

As a result, the organisation will have to pay a fine of DKK15,000 as well as court costs.

News of the court victory comes days after Spillemyndigheden revealed that gaming revenues were up nearly 8% in 2022, with all verticals of the industry rising from 2021.
