New Danish gambling information website

In December, Spillemyndigheden announced the launch of StyrPåSpillet.dk, a new public information portal. The website provides information to the public on issues around gambling, including compulsive gaming.

The website includes content for parents and teachers designed to help inform young people about safer gambling and how to identify compulsive gambling behaviour. The regulator said that primary and lower secondary school teachers would find teaching materials that can be used directly from the website for students aged 13-15.
