Spillemyndigheden establishes new whistleblower scheme

The Danish industry regulator, Spillemyndigheden, has reached out to employees of gambling operators who wish to report evidence of money laundering in the gambling industry through the establishment of a new whistleblower scheme.

Spillemyndigheden has detailed that employees can report a company’s violation or potential violation of the anti-money laundering legislation to the regulator via a dedicated, anonymous contact form which will then trigger a legal investigation.

All submissions will be encrypted to ensure that submissions are secure. The new scheme follows the regulator’s recent ploy to strengthen consumer protection throughout the year, with recent warnings being issued to licensees regarding the promotion of bonus offers.

Back in April, Spillemyndigheden blocked access to 25 gambling websites after petitioning the country’s telecommunications providers.

Under court order from Copenhagen City Court, Danish internet providers have now been obliged to block access to ten igaming sites, in addition to 15 skin betting websites.

Equinox Dynamic’s Nordic Casino, Orientxpresscasino and La Fiesta Casino sites had all been blocked in addition to Game Tech Group’s Ramses Casino and two domains for its Cashpot Casino site.

In March, the operator released a new code of conduct for gambling operators in Denmark, with the intention of minimising the risk of problem gambling behaviours and ensuring consumer protection.
