Online Casinos Licensed by Danish Gambling Authority
Online casinos licenses have been available for private companies to obtain since 2012, with most of these having already been issued. All online casinos that acquire such a license can only feature a certain range of games at their sites, such as slots, blackjack, roulette, baccarat, poker and ‘punto banco,’ while sports betting and the lottery remain a state monopoly. Online casinos can obtain an operating license if they feature games that rely not solely on luck, but also on skill as well, like backgammon.
About Danish Gambling Authority
Currently, casinos and gaming arcades are the most popular form of gambling in all of Denmark, and the only form of legal games of chance. In 2010, Denmark passed the Gambling Act that was meant to regulate the gambling activity in the country. Under this law, all gambling forms are legal if the operator has obtained an operating license. This includes sports betting, casinos and lotteries. So far, the Danish Gambling Authority has issued more than 25 licenses that apply to both Danish and international operators for online casinos.
