Gambling Regulations in Nordic Countries

This website will provide you with in-depth information on gambling regulations in the Nordic countries of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden as well as their autonomous territories: Faroe Islands, Greenland, and Aland Island.

Our aim is to share our knowledge of online gambling regulations in the Nordic regions, including guidelines on how to apply for operating licenses and how to run online gambling businesses legally.

We also update our site regularly to ensure that it features the latest news and gambling regulations in the Nordic and Baltic countries.

The Danish Gambling Authority (Spillemyndigheden)

Nordic citizens are fond of betting real money on games of chance. According to the results of various surveys conducted in the Nordic regions, 80% of the adult population has tried some form of gambling or the other at least once in life.

Gambling revenue as well as the amount spent on gambling is steadily on the rise in each Nordic country.

However, each Nordic country has taken its own route when it comes to online gambling regulation. Denmark and Sweden have already regulated their online gambling industries and have powerful regulatory bodies.

Finland and Norway have chosen to protect their gambling monopolies despite objections raised by the European Union. Finland, however, is deeply interested in the Swedish regulatory framework and is weighing the pros and cons of enacting similar laws.

This website includes comprehensive pages devoted to online gambling regulations in each Nordic country, including Denmark, Norway, and Finland.

We have also devoted sections to online gambling regulations in the UK and in the three Baltic countries – Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia.
