Norway May Regulate Online Gambling

The country is one step closer to legalizing online gambling. An impact assessment was requested from the Culture Committee in the country on various regulatory proposals. The committee plans to study up on experiences in other countries, such as the UK, Denmark, and Sweden. Once this is completed, then drafting legislation will begin for hopeful implementation by next year.

Norway is a country with some of the strictest gambling controls in all of Europe. There is currently no online gambling industry in the country. Two companies that are state-owned offer a few games played by citizens.

The main reason the country is loosening gambling controls is mostly due to prohibition of gambling is not working. Poker is an example of one game that is gaining favor with government officials. Poker is seen as low-risk for problem gambling.

  2. Online gambling should be legalized by the Government this will put control over illegal gambling sites and save people getting scammed by those sites.

  3. Members of the Senate, parliament, government and even the president pretend naive as to cover up what they’ve done is good, but in reality, consciously or not what they have done is a bet. Risking people’s trust in running the government is gambling. So why online gambling should be banned ?, to do is set up as good as possible government policies so that online gambling in order to make a positive contribution as an example to raise the economic level..Viva OC!

  4. Norway is one of the strickest gambling control nation. here’s my opinion: they loosening the regulation, to earn more revenue, so their gross domestic product raise legally. Why? Because they also hit with financial crisis. One by one, the investor withdraw their investment in their stock market.
