Norwegian casinos add new limits and regulations
Norwegian casinos have officially introduced brand new limits and regulations for all casinos in the country. Although online gambling is legal in this country, it is heavily monitored, restricted and regulated. The new measures will make online gambling a much safer and more secure environment for players, specifically when you take into account the massive increase in the number of online players we have seen during the last year, considering the COVID-19 pandemic.
The first brand to introduce changes such as these was Norsk Tipping, who decreased the daily loss limits of all their games down to NOK2K (about £173.31). They have also decided to introduce a time out period of 15 minutes per 1 hour of gameplay, as opposed to just 90 seconds. Additionally, they also decided to remove the “popular” tags from their games. This all comes in addition to the team at Norsk Tipping utilizing their tools to keep track of the existing measures that are in place and trying to come up with more changes if they are ever needed.
There are other changes moving in all across the industry too. Any Norwegian poker fan will not be able to place deposits on PartyPoker sites in the near future, but they will still be able to make withdrawals.
Many of the parent companies of these brands are opting to limit their operations in similar manners to this, so we might witness more and more changes, not only in the Norwegian casinos, but in other territories as well.
Affiliate managers with connections to these brands need to be conscious of how these rules could potentially affect both them and their players, so they can make changes to their own programme as needed to support them in this time.
