Casinos in Denmark

There are only 7 licensed casinos in Denmark and the DGA will not be issuing any new licences. Only when one of the current licences becomes available will it be put out to tender. As well as authorising the premises, the Managers and employees that work in the casino must also be authorised by the DGA. Players have to be 18 or over to be able to enter the casinos in Denmark. The most popular is the Casino Copenhagen which has over 140 slots, blackjack, roulette, punto banco and poker tables. Other casinos in the country are the Casino Aalborg, the Royal Casino Aarhus, the Casino Merienlyst in Helsingør, the Casino Odense and the Casino Mukebjerg in Vejle. There is also a casino onboard the Norwegian Cruise Lines - Getaway that is moored in Copenhagen. As well as playing games at casinos, residents of Denmark can also play their favourite slots in licensed restaurants and gaming arcades.

Gambling Laws - Denmark

All gambling in Denmark was run by the state monopoly Danske Spil until the Court of European Justice forced the Danish government to update its Laws. This resulted in the 2010 Danish Act on Gambling which came into force in 2012. The law has seperated gambling activities into many categories, lotteries, online casinos, betting, poker, gaming machines and land based casinos. If an online casino wants to operate in Denmark, they can apply to the DGA for an online betting licence and/or an online casino licence. If granted, licensees will be closely monitored by the Spyllemindigheden to ensure compliance.
