Denmark – Danske Spil under scrutiny

By - 20 May 2014

The Danish Gambling Authority is investigating whether Danske Spil should be allowed to operate its online and offline companies as one, by sharing a website and customer databases. Danske Spil is currently operating its sports betting and online business in open competition with other licensees, but holds a monopoly for offline gambling and lottery products under its Danske Lotteri Spil brand. The Danish Online Gambling Association (DOGA) has complained about unfair competition, and used the recent decision of the French Competition authority – which decided that French horseracing monopoly PMU has to separate its online and offline offerings – as an example.

The Danish Gambling Authority has also contacted several websites in an attempt to stop their illegal activities. A large number of these websites have corrected their gambling offers to comply with the Danish gambling legislation. However, some websites continue to offer gambling activities without a license from the Danish Gambling Authority. Consequently, five online casino sites have been blocked by local internet service providers.
