55 Websites providing illegal Gambling blocked by the Danish Courts

In March 2021, a Danish court accepted the Danish Gambling Authority’s request to block 55 gambling websites via the internet service providers. The websites were used to offer gambling services in Denmark; however, the gambling providers did not hold a mandatory Danish gambling license as required under the Danish Gambling Act and accordingly, providing such services was illegal.

The court concluded that the Danish Gambling Authority did not have to prove that persons located in Denmark had actually made transactions with the gambling providers. The mere fact that it was possible for persons located in Denmark to make transactions was sufficient to block the websites.

This constitutes a possibly new development in Danish case law. The decision has, however, been appealed by the internet service providers.
