Denmark’s Gaming Authority, the Spillemyndigheden, has unveiled regulatory tweaks that while minor should nevertheless delight the nation’s punters.
First up is a new, mainly online-focused, stipulation that any bonus won as part of a promotional offering must remain active for the customer’s use for at least 60-days – without additional terms and conditions.
The new ruling also applies to bonuses offered to retail players.
Meantime, the Scandinavian country has also liberalized its ISO testing regime.
Henceforth testing companies will now be asked to apply ISO 17025 protocols, instead of ISO 17020, by way of issuing accreditation.
To the layperson the change may appear minor but effectively the move shifts the measurement of quality control and legal compliance from the theoretical to the practical.
In perhaps the most important change, testing companies will gain their accreditation not by fulfilling a minimum of three-years of operation but by measuring the real-world working experience of its employees.
And in another change, firms without ISO accreditation can now conduct so-called “penetration” testing: a form of testing that checks the integrity and resilience of a product, be it mechanical or virtual.
All stakeholders across the Danish betting industry have been invited to submit their input on the new rules that are set to be implemented next year.
