Since 1st of January 2012
Since the liberalisation of the Danish gambling market in January 2012 it has been a requirement that login to a gambling account should be authorized by the means of a digital signature with a security level corresponding to the OCES standard.
In practical terms NemID has been used by all licence holders, when login was from a technical platform supporting Java, which has been a prerequisite for NemID. The executive orders on online casino and online betting encompass an exemption for those technical platforms that does not support such a digital signature. The licence holders have been able to apply for a dispensation for login from mobile units without the use of NemID (the OCES-Standard).
New solution for NemID
From the 1st of January 2015 all logins, regardless of the platform, must be supported by the means of a digital signature.
Licence holders, that previously have had their mobile login solution approved, will receive a letter notifying that the possibility of the alternative login lapses by the end of 2014.
