Denmark: The liberalisation of online bingo and the new focus areas of the Danish Gambling Authority

Following the European Commission giving the green light to the liberalisation of online bingo in Denmark, the Danish Parliament on 2 June 2017 adopted a Bill to implement this liberalisation. While the liberalisation of online bingo will not come into force until 1 January 2018, the Danish Ministry of Taxation has recently published a draft for the regulation of online bingo to be inserted into an amended version of the current Executive Order on Online Casino. The regulation focuses on how online bingo is conducted, covering topics such as the duration of the games, the numbers on the bingo cards, rules for prizes and stakes and so on. However, the draft’s description of the online bingo games that can be offered might give rise to some uncertainty in respect of the scope and what games are actually covered. Separately, the Danish Gambling Authority has issued a report on illegal gaming, which states that the regulator has recently increased its focus on websites that are marketing the gaming services of unlicensed operators. In this article, Jesper Madsen of Gorrissen Federspiel Advokatpartnerselskab analyses both developments.
