State-Owned Gambling Firm Fined For Money Laundering Lapses

Under protest, Danske Spil coughs up fine of DKK 1.2 million

The 2013 criminal actions of an insurance company employee who stole from his firm to gamble held consequences this week for Denmark’s state-owned gambling company Danske Spil, which “under protest” paid a hefty DKK 1.2 million fine to the State Attorney for lapses in its anti-money laundering systems.

The insurance employee gambled some of the stolen money away on Danske Spil but the matter did not surface until two years later when national gambling regulator Spillemyndigheden opened an investigation.

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.
