Greenland casino guide

This is a guide to brick and mortar as well as online casinos in Greenland. Find out what the best casinos and online casino sites are in Greenland, or learn more about the legal status of casino gambling in the country.

 

Online casinos in Greenland

Legal status: legal since 2012, Danish licenses accepted

 

Online casino gambling is legal in Greenland, and regulated by order number 67 of 25 (Bekendtgørelse nr. 67 af 25.) January 2012 and Executive Order no. 336 2016*. Online casino gambling in Greenland is supervised by the Danish Gambling Authority, Spyllemindigheden. Greenland doesn’t issue online casino licenses, but online casinos with a Danish license, or casinos partnered with a Danish licence holder can legally accept players from Greenland.

Greenland is an autonomous country within the Danish Realm, which means that the Greenlandic head of state is the Danish Queen Margrethe II. Greenland has two representatives in the Danish parliament, and has its own parliament chosen by popular vote as well. Greenland has the right to legislate for itself, though it often adopts Danish laws.

The Danish Gambling Act of 2012 was adopted into Greenlandic law with some modifications. Similarly to Denmark, online casinos are legal, and strictly regulated, especially when it comes to identification, anti money laundering laws, and minimum age, which is 18. Self-exclusion from online casinos is also possible, and casino bonuses can not be marketed as “free money” etc…

The Greenlandic online casino regulation is practically the same as the Danish law, which is really strict, and tries to reduce problem gambling as much possible. Since the law came into effect, the Danish Gambling Authority has issued over 30 online casino licences. These licenses are valid in Greenland as well (you can see these casinos below).

Surprisingly, unlicensed online casinos are not blocked (unlike in Denmark), and individual players are not prosecuted for playing on unlicensed platforms. However, it is illegal, and only winnings from licensed online casinos are tax exempt (see below at the taxation section). We certainly do not recommend playing in unlicensed and illegally operating online casinos.

The online casinos below all have a Danish licence, or are partnered with a Danish licence holder. If they no longer accept players from Greenland, or are blocked in the country, please let me know, so I can update the webpage.

 

Age required to play in online casinos in Greenland: 18

 

Can tourists play in online casinos while vising Greenland?

Yes.

 

Greenland online casino tax: up to 28% for online gambling sites (progressive tax system)

 

For players, taxation of winnings from an online casino 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.

 

Online casino licensing Greenland:

Online gambling licenses are not issued in Greenland. 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.

Land-based casinos in Greenland

Legal status: legal, Danish licenses accepted

 

Similarly to online casinos in Greenland, brick and mortar casinos are also legal in the country. There is a dual licensing process, in the sense that while land-based casino gambling is regulated locally, casino licences are only issued by the Danish Gambling Authority.

Even though brick and mortar casinos in Greenland are, in theory, legal, there are currently no licensed casinos in Greenland. This could be explained by a lack of demand, as the population of Greenland is only about 55 000. In fact, Greenland is the least densely populated country in the world.

However, this lack of casinos in Greenland is paired with a surge in problem gambling. This is caused by slot machines, which can be found in bars throughout the country..

Local groups regularly organise gambling events in Greenland. These range from legal games, such as non-profit bingo, to illegal events, including dice and card games. The Greenlandic government has not exactly been successful with dealing with problem gambling. This raises the question of whether it would be better to restrict slot machines to casinos, and to open a casino instead of the allowing slot machines outside of casinos. However, local entrepreneurs are reliant on the revenue form these slot machines (and in small towns there is not much in the form of entrainment) and it’s not sure whether restricting gaming machines would do more good than harm.

 

Age required to enter a casino in Greenland: 18 – same as in Denmark, this applies to any gambling establishment

 

Can tourists enter casinos while vising Greenland?

Yes. But the closest thing to a casino are the pubs with slot machines, you can play in those as a tourist.

 

Greenland online casino tax: up to 45% (progressive tax system)

 

For players, taxation of winnings from casinos in Greenland: winnings from a licensed casino are tax exempt

 

Casino licensing Greenland:

Denmark doesn’t issue casino licenses. A company would need to get a licence from the Danish Gambling Authority to be able to open a casino in Greenland. Casinos licenses form the Danish Gamblign Authority are valid in Greenland and Denmark.

 

 

Bitcoin casinos in Greenland

Legal status: not specifically regulated

 

Bitcoin gambling is not specifically regulated in Denmark or Greenland. The online casinos below which accept players from Greenland also accept cryptocurrencies (if nothing else, then through Skrill, a third-party virtual wallet, look for that among the payment options).

 

 

Other forms of online gambling in Greenland

 

Most forms of online gambling are not specifically regulated in Greenland. While there are no licensed online bingo operators in Greenland, locals are free to play on online bingo sites licensed in Denmark.

Lottery is probably the most popular form of gambling in Greenland. Greenland does not operate its own lottery, but the Danish national lottery, Danske Spil is available to Greenlandic players and it is very popular. As online lottery is a monopoly in Denmark, this is officially the only way for Greenlanders to participate in online lottery draws, but playing on international online lottery sites is also not punished in any way, and they are not blocked.

Online sports betting is legal in Greenland, but the situation is pretty much the same as with other forms of online gambling. Officially, operators need to be licensed in order to offer online sports betting in Greenland, legally. And that is done by the Danish Gambling Authority, therefore only online bookmakers with a Danish licence can accept players form Greenland.

Thank you for visiting:
This is a selfie of the author and owner of Simon's Casino Gambling Blog, me, Simon András Péter, a.k.a. by the internet pseudonym SimonTheSorcerer, owner of Simon's Online Marketing Kft. This is the homepage of my online casino gambling blog, you can see what's on the website, the links to all the different sections of the website.
That's me, Simon, thank you for visiting.
Don't worry, this is not an ad! ;) Just wanted to make sure to tell you that I'm glad you visited this gambling blog. I'm Simon, the only author and the man behind this blog (if you are interested, my unusual life story can be found on the homepage, under the "About me" dropdown section).
I'm an independent gambling blogger since 2012. In this sector dominated by huge media companies, casino operators and online marketing networks, who can easily spend $ millions on their online gambling blogs, it's not easy for an independent nobody like me to survive. It took me about 6 years, working my ass off, to even have a chance to be noticed by visitors like you. I'm lucky enough that for a few years now, I make enough money to be able to do this full time (before that, I had part-time jobs, ghost writing gigs, online marketing this and that).
Now I can finally do this full time, thanks to visitors like you! And it means a lot! If you are interested, please bookmark this site (no social media profiles, I no longer have any, but please feel free to share anything on any social media networks, if you still use them). I don't have any money to advertise, and if you have a personal blog, any social media profile, please mention my gambling blog and link back to it. This the only way for a small website like this to grow. Thank you!

Charity: As a way to help others, to give back, I sometimes donate to Kiva. If you click on the ads on the website, I make some money. And in a good month, if I make more than my expenses, I donate to people and projects on Kiva.
Kiva helps young entrepreneurs in developing countries, which is an issue close to my heart for obvious reasons. If you have the means, please sign up with the revolutionary non-profit company Kiva.org and help people lift themselves out of poverty, through hard-work, and an initial investment (non-profit loan). These non-profit loans encourage entrepreneurship and hard work instead of creating a dependent class that is afraid to get a job, or start a business (because if they did, they would no longer get support and free money, disincentivezing hard work and entrepreneurship). This is the right way to fight poverty in developing countries (or anywhere else really), and if this is something you are interested in, and if you would like to know more, or to help out, please check out Kiva.org here. Thank you!
