Danish Regulator Restructures Its Offices

By Brian Cullingworth, Last updated Oct 20, 2017

Four offices are now categorized by gambling category

Starting this (October) month the Danish Gambling Authority will operate on a restructured basis with four offices distinguished by gambling category titled respectively “Lottery and Monopoly”, “Remote Gambling”, “Slot Machines and Responsible Gambling” and “Finance, Policy and Market Analysis.”

Each of these units has responsibility for all the processes relevant to a specific gambling category; from dialogue and guidance to issuing permits and ongoing supervision. At the same time, a number of cross-disciplinary working groups are maintained. In these groups, the units coordinate and deepen in areas such as money laundering and marketing.

The restructuring means that the individual licensee will have only one point of entry to the Danish Gambling Authority.

“The idea behind the new organisation is intended to create a better overview and a clearer connection for our partners,” said DGA Director Birgitte Sand. “I expect that with the new organisation we will be better at ensuring a well-functioning gaming market through clear contact areas and continued cooperation with the licensees and our other important stakeholders.”

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
