Greenland gambling guide

 

Greenland is an autonomous country within the Danish Realm. The country is located between the Arctic and the Atlantic Ocean, and east of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. Greenland is the world’s largest island but its 56,000 population make it the least densely populated country in the world. Though geographically a part of the continent of North America, Greenland has been politically and culturally associated with Europe for more than a millennium.

Greenland is part of the Kingdom of Denmark but enjoys almost total autonomy (self rule, since 2009). The official language of Greenland is Greenlandic.

Gambling is legal and regulated in Greenland according to the Danish Gambling Act*, which Greenland adapted, with some modifications**. Online gambling is legal as well. Online gambling is not regulated in Greenland, but gambling is supervised locally. Every entity has to acquire a local license to operate a gambling business or posses a Danish gambling license, which is also accepted. With a Danish gambling license gambling companies can operate in Greenland and online casinos licensed by Denmark can accept players from Greenland as well.

Despite gambling being legal, there aren’t any brick-and-mortar casinos operating in Greenland at the moment. The reasons behind this is that gambling represents a big source of income for local entrepreneurs and local municipalities, who are reliant on this tax income. And also, Greenland is a small country, and not exactly wealthy, it doesn’t really attract investors. Card games (illegal in some municipalities) and bingo (legal as long as it is non-profit) are often organized by local groups, and even smaller bars have slot machines (the local municipalities and the police can license certain forms of gambling, and certain forms do not require a license at all, see below), the Danish lottery of Dankse Spil is also popular. Actually, problem gambling is on the rise in Greenland, a country already infamous for its high rate of alcoholism and suicides.**** Therefore, stricter gambling laws can be expected sometime in the future.

UPDATE: Online gambling legislation underwent some changes in 2016, new regulations for companies with a Danish licence are in place.***** This bill entrusted licencing of online gambling operations to the Danish Gambling Authority. Consequently, when it comes to online gambling, Danish laws apply, except for the special regulations, requirements in Executive Order no. 336 and order number 67 of 25 (Bekendtgørelse nr. 67 af 25.) January 2012.

 

The online gambling platforms below are either licensed in Denmark, or they are in partnership with a Danish license holder. That’s why they can accept players from Greenland legally. If they are for some reason blocked in the country, or are no longer accept players from Greenland, please let me know, so I can update the website. Thank you.

 

 

Greenland gambling licenses

The police and the local municipalities supervise gaming machines, lottery ticket sales in Greenland but they only license charity lotteries, bingo, gaming machines. If you intent to set up a gambling operation in Greenland contact the police for more information, they usually issue the license. Apart from this, Danish licenses are accepted, which are handled by the Danish Gambling Authority. These licenses are valid for both Greenland and Denmark.

However, the Danish Gambling Authority may grant authorization to resell gambling products and/or operate an online casino in their behalf, to persons residing in Greenland, and for Greenlandic companies etc. (legal entities) established in Greenland according to Executive Order no. 336. Permission is granted for up to 1 year at a time, and the taxable gaming income may not exceed DKK 1,000,000.

Online casinos can offer roulette, baccarat, punto banco, blackjack, poker and online slot machines. Permission may be given to offer others types of games.

 

Greenland gambling tax

The Danish gambling taxation system applies to Greenland as well:

The gambling tax in Denmark is progressive, up to 45% for casinos, 41% for slots outside casinos, and 28% for online gambling sites (tax rate is considered really high, even in Europe).

Except for non-profit, charity gambling, which is exempt from gambling tax.

 

 

For the players, taxation of gambling winnings in Greenland:  Just like in Denmark. Winnings from licensed gambling operators are tax-free for the player, but winnings from non-licensed gambling operations (e.g.: you travel abroad, as a tourist, and you win money in a a casino) are personal income, and are taxed as such, with tax rates of up to 62 % (progressive tax system). This applies to unlicensed online casinos as well! Another good reason to stick to licensed online casinos (you can see them below), winnings from such gambling platforms are tax exempt.

 

Legal gambling age in Greenland: 18 (applies to non-profit, for charity gambling as well)

 

Can tourists play online in Greenland: Yes.

 

Other:

Social gambling is not regulated as long as it does not involve real money (if it does, it is considered gambling). Lo0t boxes, skin gambling is considered gambling if:

 

Which means that most forms of loot boxes and “skin gambling” in video games is considered gambling and are illegal in Denmark and Greenland, without a license.

Fantasy football, sports betting is not specifically regulated, but it considered gambling if real money is involved.

Casino gambling in Greenland

 

Online casino gambling in Greenland: legal since 2012, Danish licenses are accepted

 

Gambling is legal and regulated in Greenland, some forms are regulated locally, but casino licences are not issued. However, casino licenses form the Danish Gambling Authority are theoretically accepted. But, there aren’t any land-based casinos operating in Greenland right now.

Card games and dice games are illegal in some municipalities, unlike in Denmark, which makes it impossible for casinos to operate. Slot machines can be found in bars in Greenland (license granted by the local municipality), and these pubs + slot machines (small slot halls) are the casino substitutes in Greenland.

Online casino gambling is legal since 2012 according to the order number 67 of 25 (Bekendtgørelse nr. 67 af 25.) January 2012. Danish online gambling licenses are accepted, and online casinos licensed in Denmark can accept players from Greenland as well.

Bingo in Greenland

 

Online bingo in Greenland: legal, Danish licenses are accepted

 

Bingo and online bingo are legal in Greenland. However, the liberalisation of online bingo and betting on horse, dog, and pigeon racing does not apply to Greenland, which means that only websites with a Danish bingo license can accept players from Greenland. Land-based bingo is popular in Greenland, there is even radio bingo, and bingo games are often organized in community halls (non-profit bingo) and in Godthåbhallen. In Denmark, bingo is a monopoly of Danske Spil, which is a state-owned company. But in Greenland, non-profit bingo is organized locally, and it is exempt from the monopoly. Danske spil does not operate any bingo halls in Greenland (however, according to executive order 336, persons, companies on behalf of Danske Spil might organize bingo games in Greenland, not known if such an arrangement is in place or not currently, if you know something, please let me know in the comments section).

For non-profit bingo one must acquire a license from the police, or in bigger towns, a licence from the local municipality.

Online bingo is not regulated in Greenland. However, websites licensed in Denmark can accept players from Greenland. Players from Greenland can play bingo online on websites with a Danish licence, or on online bingo websites partnered with a Danish licence holder.

Lottery in Greenland

 

Online lottery in Greenland: legal, Danish licenses are accepted

Arguably, the lottery is the most common form of gambling in Greenland. The lottery is legal in Denmark, and the Danish national lottery dominates in Greenland as well. Currently, there are 4 organizations and state-controlled companies, which are eligible to organize lottery draws, and sell lottery tickets and associated products: the Danske Lotteri Spil A/S, the Det Danske Klasslotteri A/S, the Almindeligt Dansk Vare- og Industrilotteri (the Goods Lottery), and the Landbrugslotteriet, all of these could be available for players in Greenland, but only Danske Spil is present in Greenland for now. Many of these gambling companies operate online lotteries as well (also accessible by players from Greenland). Aside from these, only non-profit associations, institutions, organisations, committees and local municipalities can apply for a lottery licence in Greenland, and a big portion of the revenue must fund non-profit projects.*

The following websites let people from Greenland purchase lottery tickets online:

Bitcoin gambling in Greenland

 

Bitcoin gambling in Greenland: not specifically regulated, Danish licenses are accepted

 

Bitcoin gambling is a form of online gambling and therefore Danish laws apply to it in Greenland. Denmark’s Financial Supervisory Authority acknowledged the use of Bitcoin back in 2013, but Denmark does not specifically regulate bitcoin gambling. There aren’t any specific laws regarding bitcoin gambling or bitcoin in Greenland.

The bitcoin casinos below accept players from Greenland.
