Anders Dorph to lead Danish regulator as new director

Spillemyndigheden, Denmark’s gambling authority has confirmed that Anders Dorph will assume the role of Director, effective from 1 November.

Dorph will join the regulator after serving as the deputy director of the Danish Immigration Service.

Commenting on the new appointment, Minister of Taxation Morten Bødskov said: “The gaming authority plays a crucial role in the work of ensuring a proper and regulated gaming market in Denmark, where players are protected against unfair and illegal gaming. That is why I am glad that Anders Dorph has taken on the task.

“He has an extremely heavy professional profile with broad experience from politically led organizations and cooperation across authorities. Therefore, I look forward to benefiting from his experience.”

Dorph will take over from Morten Niels Jakobsen, who stepped down from the position earlier this year to join the Danish Valuation Agency as its new director.

Celebrating his new role, Dorph added: “The Gaming Authority is an exciting agency that plays an important role in regulating the gaming market. That is why I am very much looking forward to the task and the collaboration with the many talented employees in the agency.”

This year, Spillemyndigheden has made updates to the Danish Gambling Act‘s technical requirements on game reporting, creating a unique segment for virtual sports games to be individually audited by licensed operators.

Spillemyndigheden’s new technical requirements have been added alongside customer protection enforcements, which require all operators to promote the ROFUS self-exclusion scheme across their domains, in addition to ensuring all customers set mandatory deposit limits upon registration.
