Following the government imposed tax raise for iGaming operators to 28%, new changes are on the horizon for the iGaming industry in Denmark.
The Danish gambling regulator Spillemyndigheden has announced a series of updates and amendments to its online casino certification programme on December 10th.
From the 1st of January 2020, it will be mandatory for players to set a deposit limit before actually being able to play. This means that prior to gambling, players will have to choose and set a monthly, weekly or daily limit.
Companies who operate under the Danish Gambling Authority’s labelling scheme will also have to give their customer the opportunity to get a statement of account and provide information on responsible gambling, with references to ROFUS (the country’s self-exclusion database) and StopSpillet (StopGambling). Operators will be required to develop internal rules, process and staff training to be able to provide the information.
In addition, licensees will have to keep player gambling data on file for at least five years and clearly display the Spillemyndigheden logo on their site, to make clear that it has been certified by the regulator.
