On 3 March 2020, the 2nd OVWG expert panel on the topic ” Gambling Regulation 2.0 – Best Practice Example Denmark” took place. During the event, Birgitte Sand, Director of the Danish Gaming Authority, explained how gambling regulation is organised in Denmark and what experience has been gained there. Denmark opened its online gambling market in a controlled manner in 2012 and has since then issued licences that are not limited in terms of quantity but are linked to high market access and player protection standards. As a result, Denmark has managed to channel over 90% of demand into the licensed and fully controlled market. It was very interesting and we are already looking forward to the next expert panel!

What could a modern, sustainable regulation of the online betting and gambling sector that complies with European law look like in Austria? How can increasing digitisation be taken into account and how can high standards of player protection be guaranteed? In order to discuss these questions, the Austrian Association for Betting and Gaming (OVWG) organises recurring expert rounds.
