Norway to Enforce Firmer Payment Restrictions on International Gambling Sites

Tags: gambling laws, Norway
Posted on Thursday, April 26, 2018 by "T".
The government of Norway is planning new methods that will strengthen restriction of online gambling payment processing to help limit the competition of the state-owned Norsk Tipping gambling monopoly.

Good news for norwegian players who want to participate in online games. Other countries should follow this example to be able to have more exciting poker games. More players, many prizes. I do not understand why italy, france and spain do not give a law to be able to play again with the rest of the world. I hope things will change. Smile

And i thought we were in a bad situation after the new legislation, few years ago.
They are in a much worst position than us here.
Maybe i should stop complaining, about what has happened here Smile

I'm glad that there are countries that are opening their minds a little. Good news for Norwegian players.
Here is the other way around, the government intervened since January to have a monopoly on sports betting (and incidentally block the pages of Poker, because they are also associated with that type of bets). We can no longer deposit money through credit cards. For now only paysafecard continues to serve.

They did something like that her also ligador37.
They gave us too many bull excuses for the legislation, with one of the main reasons,
that they wanted to protect the citizens from the gambling risks etc.
Now, after some time has passed, they have started opening everywhere, small shops,
with slots. And i mean everywhere.
And of course it is a monopoly !!!

I actually didn't know playing poker for money is prohibited by law in Norway until I read this article. There are many talented poker players from Norway. Annette Obrestad, the youngest person to ever win a WSOP bracelet, is Norwegian, I guess. Is she still living there?

Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap! now also Norway has joined the list of countries restricting the online game in the casino and poker ..... it seems to me that these states are following the wrong way of banishing their people ...... if I get banned from playing on the Internet I will play in illegal casinos ... and who is better from this ?? Confused

I speak without knowing, but capable is like in my country and if they win tournaments abroad, when they enter they have to pay huge taxes.
That's why it's not good for the players in my country to go and play those big tournaments in Las Vegas, I think the tax is around 30% of the win. Then it is more convenient to live in another country.
I do not know how it will be in the rest of the world, but here lately, it sucks.

well I have to admit that it really begins to look like governments all around the world have something against online poker, either politician dudes are losing a lot of cash on poker games or some other reason, but it's not looking good for online poker

with the ruling regulating gets better even more with so much impositions what is difficult and the sites want to operate these places that is a bit complicated because working with so many rules and regulations can disrupt and the big mark give up betting in these countries

There are also bad parts and good parts. Norway will allow players to gain access to the broad market and China will restrict player access to enjoy of online games. Americans are not able to unlock a law that allows access to these games and because of this many poker rooms are more empty. Let's see what will be in the future.
