In Spillebranchen’s point of view, the Danish Licensing system in the gamin area, which came into force in 2012, has promoted healthy competition in the gaming area, in contrast to the monopoly conditions of earlier times.
At the same time, the gaming industry now contributes large sums of income to Danish society through the payment of gaming fees, just as today, there are far better opportunities to control players who have problems handling games appropriately.
The Danish model for gaming regulation is a role model for many other countries. It has secured a considerable proportion of gambling operators licensed to offer gaming in Denmark and thus has increased tax revenue and control of risky gaming behaviour. Today, i.a., Sweden has introduced a regulation very close to the Danish one.
Some countries have chosen a far more restrictive approach, but nothing suggests that it has been to their advantage. On the contrary, it is more challenging to keep the black gambling market in check, secure revenue for the public coffers and prevent gambling addiction if rules are introduced, making it too difficult to run a business.
