Denmark to Introduce for Game Suppliers

Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

From 1 January 2025, all game suppliers wishing to provide services to gambling operators licensed in Denmark must obtain a licence from the Danish Gambling Authority.

Applications for these licences will be accepted beginning 1 September 2024.

To assist with this process, the Danish Gambling Authority has created guidance materials and made application forms available online.

Interested parties can find detailed information under the “Game Suppliers” section of the Danish Gambling Authority’s website.

The Danish Gambling Authority mandates that game suppliers’ games, game platforms, business procedures and systems undergo testing and inspection by an accredited testing company.

These tests must comply with the Danish Gambling Authority’s certification programme before any games can be offered to gambling operators.

A revised version of the certification programme is currently in development and will clarify the respective responsibilities of operators and game suppliers. This new programme is expected to be finalised and open for consultation by mid-July 2024, with implementation set for 1 January 2025.

Updated standard reports will also be available from this date.

Coinciding with the introduction of supplier licences, the Danish Gambling Authority will launch a new portal for managing game certificates, known as the “Games Register”.

This portal is scheduled to be operational by 1 October 2024, and game supplier applicants will receive login details to upload their information and game certificates as part of the application process.

Notably, existing game certificates and certifications under the current programme will remain valid, eliminating the need for re-certification of already tested and inspected games or systems.

However, starting 1 July 2025, adherence to the new certification programme will become mandatory. Game suppliers and operators are thus encouraged to adopt the updated programme as soon as possible to ensure compliance.

My experience has lead me to move into the B2B sector and write about compliance updates and report around the happenings of the online and land based gaming sector.
