Norway, the Government strengthens the block on payments to face the illegal online
Norway, the Government amends the gaming legislation to deal with the illegal online offer, and protect the monopoly of Norsk Tipping. In particular, it intends to block payments to and from unlicensed operators: the ban had already been in force since 2011, but banks have long asked for clarifications, and the Government has now adopted an interpretative amendment that clarifies the exact scope. Banks, credit institutions and money transfer companies will have to verify the individual transactions and notify the gaming regulator, the Lottstift, of suspicious transactions. The regulator will therefore also have the power to block suspicious credits on players’ current accounts.
