Denmark Introduces New Licensing Requirements for Casino Game Suppliers

Round Head IconJuly 4, 2024 - CasinoBloke

From January 1, 2025, all game suppliers who wish to offer services to gambling operators licensed in Denmark must acquire a license from the Danish Gambling Authority.

The applications for these licenses will be open from September 1, 2024.

Danish Gambling Authority Announcements

To aid in this process, the Danish Gambling Authority has developed guidance materials and made application forms accessible online. Those interested can find comprehensive information under the “Game Suppliers” section of the Danish Gambling Authority’s website.

The Danish Gambling Authority requires that game suppliers’ games, game platforms, business procedures, and systems undergo testing and inspection by an accredited testing company. These tests must adhere to the Danish Gambling Authority’s certification program before any games can be provided to gambling operators.

A revised version of the certification program is currently being developed and will clarify the respective responsibilities of operators and game suppliers. This new program is expected to be finalized and open for consultation by mid-July 2024, with implementation set for January 1, 2025. Updated standard reports will also be available from this date.

New Certification Portal

In conjunction with the introduction of supplier licenses, the Danish Gambling Authority will launch a new portal for managing game certificates, known as the ‘Games Register’.

This portal is expected to be operational by October 1, 2024, and game supplier applicants will receive login details to upload their information and game certificates as part of the application process.

It is important to note that existing game certificates and certifications under the current program will remain valid, eliminating the need for re-certification of already tested and inspected games or systems.

However, starting July 1, 2025, adherence to the new certification program will become mandatory. Game suppliers and operators are thus encouraged to adopt the updated program as soon as possible to ensure compliance.
