Danish Gambling Authority set to block more illegal sites


The Danish Gambling Authority has released the annual report describing the authority’s work with illegal gambling.

The report explains the rules for when a gambling product is legal in Denmark and reviews the efforts completed in 2023 with the purpose of combating illegal gambling.

One of the initiatives described in the report is the collaboration, which the Danish Gambling Authority has formed with Apple, Facebook and Google.

The collaboration enables the Danish Gambling Authority to report illegal gambling content in for example apps directly to the three companies who can then remove the illegal content. This ensures that Danes will not be exposed to the illegal content in the future.

The Danish Gambling Authority has consistently seen that there are more websites that com- municate access to illegal gambling than there are websites with gambling offers that target the Danish market without a licence.
