The Danish Gambling Authority Will Have More Response Options with Amendment of the Gambling Act

Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

On 2 May, the Danish Parliament adopted the Act on Amendment of Act on Gambling. Among other things, the amendment of the Gambling Act means that the Danish Gambling Authority from the 1st of July 2024 will have more response options i.e., options to issue orders and reprimands.

Until last month, the Danish Gambling Authority had the option to warn the licence holder or report it to the police when the Danish Gambling Authority found a breach of the gambling legislation.

However, in the future, when the Danish Gambling Authority finds a breach, the Danish Gambling Authority can issue an order and/or a reprimand. If the licence holder fails to comply with the order or does not meet the deadline, the breach may result in a report to the police or the licence may be revoked.

The amendment of the Act also means that the Danish Gambling Authority must publish court rulings where the outcome is a verdict of guilty or a partial verdict and fines issued for breaches found after 1 July 2024 on the Danish Gambling Authority’s website for five years.
