    Default Norway looking to follow US lead, ban transactions to Internet gambling sites

    According to Bookmaker's Review, Norway's Culture Minister is working on finding a way to enforce an existing law that bans Internet gambling by making it illegal for Norwegian banks to allow financial transactions to and from foreign Internet gambling companies.

    Sound familiar?

    Default More on the situation in Norway ...

    PokerNews UK has a detailed story on how this might affect Norwegian Poker.

    This is something of a cruel twist for Norwegian poker players after they have just witnessed Annette Obrestad, the most prolific online tournament player in the world, capture the World Series of Poker Europe Main Event. At the same final table four more Scandinavians were competing for the title.
    Scandinavia is experiencing the most sporadic and chaotic regulation of poker in Europe. Earlier this year Denmark ruled that poker was a game of skill in a crown court but in Sweden the government has significantly clamped down on illegal poker activity. Despite that Scandinavian poker players have managed to develop into one of the dominant forces in world poker with Annette Obrestad's bracelet being a clear testament to that.
