Danish Online Gambling Association Welcomes Three More High Profile Operators

Published Friday, March 09, 2012 - Online-Casinos.com

Established in December 2011 to represent the online gabling sector in Denmark and abroad the Danish Online Gambling Association has rapidly grown in scope and stature. The association acts as a sounding board and voice for operators in the recently regulated online gambling industry’s Danish jurisdiction.
Its governing body is the Executive Committee which is selected by the full membership every year. The mandate of the organization includes, Regulation, Sports betting issues, Taxation, Social Responsibility and Crime Issues. 

The DOGA is committed to promoting a well regulated and non-discriminatory Danish environment for responsible licensed operators. In doing so it shares the objectives of the Danish Act which are to maintain the consumption of gambling or as they put it, gaming for money at a moderate level; to protect young people and other vulnerable people from being exploited through gaming or developing a gaming addiction; to protect players by ensuring that games are provided in a fair, responsible and transparent way and to ensure that public order is maintained and to prevent games from supporting crime.

The consumer is a major consideration for the Danish Online Gambling Association expressed on the web site for the group. ‘Gambling is a legitimate leisure activity that provides harmless entertainment for the vast majority of its consumers, who should be given the option to choose from a wide range of licensed, reputable and responsible Danish-licensed operators. Appropriate levels of licensing and regulation can address all of the potential risks associated with gambling - both online and offline - irrespective of whether it is provided by state or private sector operators.’
It was recently revealed that Betsson, Bet24 and Ladbrokes along with Bet365, Betfair, Unibet and Sportingbet are active members of the organization.
Having over 12 years of experience from the private and public sector the recipient of the "European Regulator of the Year" award from the association "International Masters of Gaming Law" in 2010 Morten Rønde, is the current Chief Executive of DOGA.
