Danish Gambling Authority

Denmark may seem a small European country with a population of 5 million people, but in order to open a casino here, you still need the Danish Gambling Authority (DGA) license. You probably did not see many gambling websites that have this license, and this is normal: the DGA license has some heavy terms, and it is only effective in Denmark. According to the statistics, only 13% of the total population is interested in online gambling, so this makes the potential customer base very small, around 600.000 people. What Danish people love is lotteries: Nearly 43% of the population takes part in lotteries, and a DGA license is required for them too. So, in practice, only companies that are focused on lotteries get a Danish Gambling Authority license, and online casinos usually skip it due to the low customer base and heavy taxing conditions.
