News Bite - Danish "Neigbourhood Watch" To Tackle Illegal Operators

The Danish Gambling Authority (DGA) has launched a “neighbourhood watch-type” service to allow companies and citizens who suspect an illegal operator in the market to notify them, according to eGaming Review.

Any citizen who finds a site catering to the Danish market without the necessary licencing can send screenshots and company information to the DGA in order for them to investigate. Punishment for companies who attempt this will include the blockage of IP addresses, fines and possible police intervention.

The service has already started to work, according to the DGA. They have already received a number of sources on unlicensed operators and are preparing to create a service on tackling the illegal activity.

The DGA are to also produce a site which will teach Danish gamblers on the new regulations and to provide a checklist on how to spot an illegal site.
