One of the most important jobs of the Danish Gambling Authority is to ensure a fair gambling market in Denmark and to protect vulnerable groups from the potentially harmful effects of gambling.
Most Danes associate games and gambling with entertainment and having a good time, but the latest study of problem gambling in Denmark shows that gambling has developed into problem gambling to about 10,000 Danes.

If you – or someone you know – gamble too much, you can use the Danish Gambling Authority’s register of self-excluded persons (ROFUS).
