The new gambling law which upsets the whole Norwegian poker community

A new gambling law which upsets the whole Norwegian poker community has just been passed into law by the government of Norway. The new law will make it illegal for banks in Norway to process transactions to casinos and poker/casino/betting sites outside Norway.

Its ridiculous that governments make online poker/gambling bank-transactions illegal. They better find ways to get their share of the profits instead, by taxing the high-profit players in an honest way.

I am not afraid that the legislators in my country would do that kind of a thing in near future. They are trying to stop gaming companies from advertising and at the same time a licenced monopoly slot machine company (RAY) are starting internet poker for people living in Finland. Top poker players like Ilari Sahamies pay tax from some of their winnings (FTP) so it would not make sense to drive players out of the country. Of course, some people may move abroad anyway but there are many reasons for that like weather, closeness to live casinos, etc in addition to tax laws and gaming legislation. Our countrymen and -women haven't done very well at Winter Games this time so let us concentrate on poker and motor sports.

Well it's a little bit strange. E-wallets can't be illegal for someone. So this law is only uncomfortable but not a real problem. As i see. What about my country? They are trying to get some of our internet poker money, but they efforts are hopeless. yet...

Strange decision, anyway they will dont stop players play poker, will be only more difficult to have money in the pocket and doubt they will can stop or make ilegal E-walets.

About my country I am not so worried, as there has never been any discussions about internet gambling. We have other things to worry about. Blink

This will affect players however, there are always the e-wallets to use to make deposits. if you ask this is just another way of making sure that monopoly works.

Sounds pretty harsh, just wondering about the Neteller etc. thing, is that possible?
In Belgium they are planning some big law changes as well, we don't know what yet exactly... Confused

They dont stop people to use online payment systems, but they can stop banks to transfer there, to some of those sites. Those who have agreements with gaming sites, like moneybookers. But you can always open acounts in foreign banks and do your transfers through those banks!

Now in moneybookers is also something about transfering money for gambling. Do you know what happen if you mark "transfer for gambling"? Is it illegal or just we need to pay some tax?

First thing i thought about reading few sentences were "ok, moneybookers will do" Big Smile Than i saw its already mantioned in the article Big Smile

I dont think they can controll it anyway what happens with moneybookers etc. What they would need to do would be forbid the Net in Norway. If they dont it will get harder, never impossible.

Government is not making poker illegal, just dont want some off shore companies taking money out of its residents pockets. Register casino in Norway and its perfectly legal, from what I read.

Online poker/gambling sites are todays version of prohibition of the 30's. These laws are infringing on people's rights and should be fought on that basis.

Ridiculous Big Smile. As much as I know, most players use Neteller and Moneybookers anyways, and noones going to stop because of that just a little bit uncomfty. What they will achieve with that is desire for very profitable players to move abroad.
