Gambling Law Reason For Danish Poker Magazine Closure

Tags: Ace, Denmark, Gambling, Law.
Posted on 14 May 2010 by "K".

Danish Poker magazine "Ace" has announced that Ace #50, scheduled to hit the streets May 20th, will not be released and the company will shut down the printed version of their magazine.

The reason can be found in the new gambling law in Denmark, looking to be effective as of July 2010. The law will make it impossible for many foreign gambling providers to operate within Denmark, without a license. Such a license, cannot be obtained until January 2011, but nobody seems to know the exact requirements for a license yet. Without foreign gambling providers and their advertising budgets, "Ace" will be unable to continue with an acceptable economy.

Its almost funny.
Gamblers are getting treated as if they are some sort of mobster, govenments just want money from us all and if they cant get it then lets stop the party.
Why not just pay us all in tokens that are only valid for what they want us to spend them on.
Slaves to the machine.

it's crazy. I can't understand how they can ban the sites that are legal within the EU and pay taxes within EU, but that's what they're planning to do.

The whole live poker seen in Denmark is in a serious decline and poker clubs are being closed down left right and center. Now when you enter a live tournament over here, you have to pay your buy-in over your webbank and recieve your winnings through your bank account, so that the tax man can check up on you! And the clubs cant really make any money anymore, so there just closing down, sending the whole poker seen back underground.. Its all about greed and control.

Goverments all over the world have been becoming more brash and aggressive in curbing civil liberties and freedom of choice. Starting to wonder if there isn't some more bizzare grang scheme going on. Here in Canada, our conservatice right wing gov't has been on the offensive against such things as unions, wages,health care, anyone not christian, woman's groups...etc,etc. In other words, being open douche bags. They haven't attacked online gambling yet, but I'm sure that they're cooking something up.

As usual government needs money, just a normal thing.
Somebody have to pay for the crysis. Pokerplayers and sites are just to rich.
