Denmark imposes a 60-day minimum deadline for bonus availability.
Spillemyndigheden, the Danish Gaming Authority, updated its regulations regarding advertisements to include a mandate for all bonuses to be available to players for at least 60 days.
An executive order was released by the Danish government to change betting regulations.
The bonus mandate follows this executive order, which affects all gambling and gaming facilities in Denmark, online and land-based.
The bonus mandate forces operators and platforms to allow customers to take advantage of a promotion, especially if it’s one of which they’ve won, for 60 days. Essentially, 60 days are allotted to claim and use a bonus of any kind, and it’s up to the operators to keep that promotion active (at least behind-the-scenes).
For customers to claim the bonus, they will not be subject to additional terms or conditions. Operators must adhere to the original promotion’s terms for that 60-day period.
Changes have also been made to testing requirements.
The assessment for giving a company the title of “testing lab” changes under these new regulations for the better. The testing requirements have been loosened significantly, eliminating the need for experience while making available more certification options for approved testing labs.
The previous 3 years of experience were removed entirely as well as the need for a company to have ISO accreditation.
Spillemyndigheden is making significant changes this year for operators and players, alike. It seems these are all in an attempt to make gaming operations more open and appealing for new companies and players.
