Issuance of licences and continuous supervision

The Danish Gambling Authority’s task is to look after players, ensure that they are well-informed, and that gambling in Denmark takes place in a fair manner.

We do this by performing the following tasks:

  • Issue and administer licences to Danske Lotteri Spil, Klasselotteriet, online casino, gaming machines, land-based casino, public poker tournaments, and charity lotteries
  • Supervise and inspect gambling operators
  • Participate in collecting data on the international developments in the gambling market. Read more under Our collaborations

The legal framework of the Danish Gambling Authority’s administration is described in several laws and statutory instruments, which you will find below.
