Danish gaming regulator updates marketing guidelines

Last month, Spillemyndigheden updated its marketing guidelines on the promotion of land-based bets and slot machines at gaming halls and restaurants. Operators must now provide clearer details about the chances of winning.

The regulator has added a new section on the chances of winning on slots. Meanwhile, it’s added updated guidance on promotions and the definition of offers including extra chances to win, lotteries and tournaments and rankings.

It said the change entails how the value of promotional draws is calculated, with the number of players predicted to take part in the draw now a deciding factor.
