Denmark ISP blocks 12 gambling websites, GamblingCompliance | Poker & eGaming News | Scoop.it

The Danish Gambling Authority (DGA) expects the courts to grant an injunction ordering a leading Danish ISP to take blocking action against 12 gambling websites operated by companies which have not taken online gambling licences. A list of 12 domain names is expected to be published on Tuesday, June 26.

 

The regulator has not revealed who is on this list but Bet-at-Home and Betclic are thought to be named among those whose domains will be blocked.

IGT/Entraction bans poker players in 50 countries - but not Italy, Nick Jones Pokerfuse

IGT/Entraction bans poker players in 50 countries - but not Italy, Nick Jones Pokerfuse | Poker & eGaming News | Scoop.it

The IGT Network, formerly Entraction, has expanded its list of blocked countries adding 20 new banned countries.

 

Banned countries include: Australia, Spain, Belgium, Cyprus, Turkey, Israel, Norway, Russia, Canada, South Africa, China, Ivory Coast, Monaco, Denmark, France and Estonia.

 

However, one notable omission from the blacklist is Italy: IGT/Entraction apparently continues to allow Italian players without the network nor any of its operators holding a license.

 

IGT, who purchased Entraction and rebranded it at the beginning of the year, was one of the first to receive approval in Nevada for an online poker license.

Betsson and Unibet hoover up the competition, Gaming Intelligence

Mergers and acquisitions have come thick and fast in the Nordic region in recent weeks. First Unibet bought Bet24, the online gaming company of Sweden’s Modern Times Group, for €13.5m. Then Betsson marched into the fray with its €65m acquisition of Nordic Gaming Group (NGG) and its NordicBet, Tobet and Triobet brands.

 

Betsson CEO Magnus Silfverberg believes it important to note Betsson is the region’s largest operator although he can also laugh at himself for doing so. (And both companies recorded revenues of around €190m at the end of 2011.) Unibet CEO Henrik Tjärnström, for his part, is keen to point out that Betsson had a couple of bad quarters and has bought growth twice (with Betsafe last year and now NGG) to address that.

 

If the two companies share a nationality and a penchant for acquisitions there is a lot more that divides them. Predictably both attribute the consolidation of the Nordic market to the seemingly unstoppable march of regulation - both now in Denmark but also in anticipation of change in Sweden. The drive towards economies of scale is an important factor in the consolidation.
