On 10 December, Spillemyndigheden, the Danish gaming regulator, announced a number of online gambling changes that will go into effect on 1 January, including the introduction of mandatory deposit limits.

In addition, the inspection standards for lotteries will now "make sure that the requirements are identical with the requirements for online casino." Also, self-exclusion must be an automated process, "which means that sending an e-mail to the licence holder’s customer service is not sufficient."

The regulator has also said that its logo must be displayed on every licensee’s site, to make clear that it has gained the necessary certification from the regulator.

From the announcement:

The requirements in the certification programme directly related to provisions amended in the executive orders have been rephrased. These requirements are those related to the use of the Danish Gambling Authority’s labelling scheme, the customer’s opportunity to get a statement of account, the setting of a deposit limit before being allowed to play and information to the customer about responsible gambling, including references to ROFUS and StopSpillet (StopGambling).

The above-mentioned changes have all been made to the inspection standards, and have given rise to other simple changes to the same document. No new requirements have been added, but several requirements have been moved to other sections of the certification programme to place them in the correct context. This means, among other things, that the section about information to the customer on player protection now appears clearer.

Overall the update partly covers general changes across gambling sectors and certification areas, and partly specific amendments to requirements in the inspection standards for online casino, online betting and lotteries. The specific changes are about responsible gambling. Due to the general amendments, new versions of every document in the certification programme are available.
