The gambling industry in Denmark has been liberalized for the most part since the entry into force of the new legislation in 2012. However, most gambling, gambling and online gambling activities take the form of a state-owned monopoly. In the Scandinavian country, the main company that has gambling rights is Danske Spil. It is quite popular and operates in the market since the distant year 1948. The main authority that controls the entities in this industry, but also ensures the protection of players from potential risks is DGA (Danish Gambling Authority).
Alternatives for players
Options for gamblers and gambling enthusiasts are numerous. Among them in Denmark you will find state-licensed and state-controlled physical casinos. So players can feel safe. Online games are also a fairly common alternative, including online poker, roulette, black jack, baccarat, online sports betting etc. However foreign operators in the online sector are few. This is because the government favors the state monopoly more Danish Games. But this company offers a lot of choices for players, and it is certain that everyone can find a form of entertainment that suits them.
In Denmark you will also find licensed slot machines and game halls with similar forms of entertainment. The national lottery is also a game that enjoys popularity among Danes.
Measures against illegal operators
Having said that, it should also be mentioned that the Danish government is quite harsh when it comes to companies operating illegally online. In 2017 the Danish state entered into a legal battle with internet service providers in the country. This happened after the latter refused to block the addresses of 24 foreign online casinos. The case went to court and as a result internet service providers in the country were forced to ban foreign sites. Also the fines and penalties are quite strict for anyone who offers gambling without a license from the DGA.
The minimum age to play games of chance in Denmark is 18 years old. This includes all types of gambling, both physical and online. But, unlike other countries, Denmark has another requirement for people who want to offer gambling and gambling services in the country. In addition to the license they must hold from the DGA, they must have reached the minimum age of 21 years.
The future of law for gambling in Denmark
Since the liberalization of the law the situation regarding gambling and gambling has only improved in Denmark. Despite relatively high taxes, the largest domestic company Danske Spil has reported huge profits and consumers also seem to prefer it en masse. At the moment no substantial changes are expected to happen in the gambling law in the Danish state. Perhaps in the somewhat more distant future we may have liberalization and more liberal conditions for other foreign operators who want to operate in the Scandinavian country.
