Norway is a green-level jurisdiction with a complete and total level of regulation for online gambling.

Norway is a country located in north-eastern Europe. It borders Sweden and Finland to the south and the Norweigian Sea to the north, north-west and west.


The way that online gambling is handled in Norway is that there is a single government-backed monopoly on all forms of it. On top of that, it's illegal for banks to process payments for foreign or unregulated online gambling. The Norsk Riskoto site is available for players who want to bet on horse races, and Norsk Tipping handles everything else including sports betting, poker, lottery, scratch card games and more.

It's also worth noting that it's illegal for people in Norway to play with foreign or unregulated gambling sites. With that having been said, they're pretty passive about enforcing this, and it's not that big of a deal for players who want to get around the ban as long as they use the right payment methods that aren't subject to the 2010 Payment Act of Norway, which is the law that prevents the banks from handling payments.


There is no licensing process in Norway in the normal sense. Instead, the government has given an effective monopoly to Norsk Riskoto and Norsk Tipping. As a result of this monopoly, players do not have much of a choice in where to play if they want to play with legal, regulated sites. The lack of competition also puts players in a situation where they have bad odds and a lack of attractive promotions.

With that having been said, everything indicates that these sites take complaints seriously and try to take care of players otherwise. This is likely to try to protect the integrity and player confidence in their monopoly.

Player Protections

Players can escalate complaints with the regulated sites, and they seem to take these complaints and issues seriously. When it comes to playing with foreign sites, there is a ban on it, but it's not enforced on any serious level, and there have been no published cases of anyone facing charges over it. With that having been said, players are going to face issues with payments because of the 2010 Payment Act, and it's not clear how reliable the banking options are for players at this point.

If players do decide to skirt the ban, then they should make sure to play with a site that has a reputation for handling Norwegian players.

    "Brian- That is not true. You tell me when the last time a VIP host was in conact with me??. I am asking for a 2 btc gift to satisfy me for being level 5. Your casino cleary stated a specail git would be give for each of the 5 levels. In addtion Brian, am I not correct that your betsoft games the max amount of spins were changed to a max of 20 cents pers spin from 40 cents. Why was not the players informed of this? My comments are honest and fair. The only time I saw your name in an email fto me is in regaring the monthly loyalty gift (which all players get) I am here to be honest and fair with my assesement on my treatment. And over 60,000 dollars in depsoits I think I have the right to  voice an opinion.  "
