This is a picture of the interior of the casino aboard the cruise ship Norwegian Escape (which regularly docks at Norway). On this page, under the picture, you can read about the laws, legislation and regulations of the various main forms of gambling in Norway: bitcoin gambling, sports betting, poker, bingo, lottery. And you can find a list of online gambling websites, which accept players from Norway.
Norway Gambling Guide
Summary: Gambling is legal in Norway since 1902 (officially: the Kingdom of Norway, a wealthy Northern European country, with a population of 5.4 million, not a member of the EU but it is a member of the EEA).

Online gambling is also legal in Norway.

History of Gambling in Norway - click to expand

History of gambling in the Kingdom of Norway:

1902 – The first written mention of gambling is the §§ 298 and 299 of the Norwegian Penal Code of 1902. Which stated that only games of chance that were offered by special licence holders were legal.

Thus, as far back as 1902, all games, where the probability of winning is based on luck (games of chance, but also includes poker), are the exclusive domain of the state and state owned companies.

1927 – The Totalisator Act legalized horse racing betting in Norway and created Norsk Rikstoto, the horse racing betting monopoly of Norway.

1986 – Lottery was legalized. It is a monopoly of Norsk Tipping.

1992 – The Gaming Scheme Act legalized most forms of gambling (casino gambling, gaming machines, poker, and also applies to online gambling) and made them a monopoly of the state. These newly legalized forms of gambling were and still are conducted by the newly created Norsk Tipping AS, the gambling monopoly of Norway.

1995 – The Lottery Act overhauled and extended the regulation of lottery and lottery like games. The Lottery Act also introduced exceptions to the state monopoly, and made it possible for non-profit entities to organize certain forms of games of chance (details can be seen in the Norway gambling licensing section below).

Not much is known about the history of gambling in Norway prior to 1902.

If you know more about gambling in Norway prior to 1902 please leave a comment (preferably with a link to a resource where I can learn more about it). Thank you.

Gambling is legal in Norway since 1902, and the main piece of the gambling legislation is the Gaming Scheme Act1.

The entire gambling sector is controlled by the state, and only the two state-owned monopolies can conduct any sort of games of chance.

The two big Norwegian gambling monopolies are: Norsk Tipping AS (lottery, instant games, scratch cards, sports betting, casino gambling) and Norsk Rikstoto (harness racing betting).

The only exception to this are non-profit organisations with a humanitarian or socially beneficial purpose (this includes religious organizations as well), which can obtain a charity gambling licence. But private commercial operators are completely banned.

/Comment: The Norwegian gambling monopoly is against the EU regulations, but Norway is not a full member of the EU. However, the country is integrated into the EEA, therefore, the gambling monopoly is often criticized by other European countries, and the privatization is a recurring, often politicized topic./

There are no real casinos in Norway, and also no slot halls since 2007. But there are places with gaming machines (so called interactive video terminals, but no live dealer tables, no card games, no electronic tables, no coin pushers, just these template based interactive video terminals).

/Comment: Before 2007 companies abused a legal loophole, and slot machines were installed everywhere (e.g.: grocery stores, cafeterias, pubs – and these acted as slot halls effectively). After a rapid rise in gambling addiction, scandals, politicization and media attention slot machines were banned entirely (except in bingo halls operated by non-profits, see below, at the bingo in Norway section)./

Gambling in Norway falls under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Culture and Church affairs.

Online gambling is also legal in Norway, and it is similarly state controlled (the monopolies of Norsk Tipping AS and Norsk Rikstoto apply online as well).

Unauthorized online gaming operators are punished2.

In 2010 the Norwegian government passed a law, called the Payment Act, that forbids banks in Norway to let their customers use credit and debit cards in offshore online casinos3.

/Comment: They got the idea from a similar law issued in the USA, called the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006. However, most offshore casinos circumvent this by using various payment processors and offshore bank accounts, and Norwegian players can easily use their credit cards while playing online, despite the Payment Act4./

The reasoning behind the Payment Act was that the government didn’t want the citizens of Norway to become gambling addicts (comment: but the real reason was to protect their online gambling monopoly from competition). However, Norwegian players can easily bypass these measures online by simply using so-called ‘digital wallets’, e.g.: Neteller, Skrill, Paypal or cryptocurrencies (and in most cases they don’t even have to do that, most offshore gambling websites managed to find a solution, and Norwegian players can use credit cards while playing online).

Norwegian players who play online on foreign gambling websites are not prosecuted, but it is technically illegal to use anything else beside the online platforms of the state owned gambling monopolies.

Many Norwegian players play online in foreign online casinos, in fact, as much as 10% of the population regularly plays on unlicensed gambling platforms according to various studies5, and this number grows year by year.

UPDATE 2021: The Norwegian government, instead of seriously considering privatization and setting up a licensing system, they doubled down on strict government control, blocking and threats6.

However, at the time of writing they still don’t even block foreign unlicensed gambling websites (despite talking about it for 10+ years), and players can freely place bets on unlicensed betting platforms, without any issues, just like before.

You can find a list of online gambling websites, which accept players from Norway below.

 

Betting on blood sports in Norway

All forms of blood sports are considered animal cruelty, and are illegal in Norway. Betting on blood sports is also illegal.

 

Can tourists play online while visiting Norway?

Yes, tourists, expats (or illegal migrants) can play online freely while enjoying their stay in the country.

 

Gambling licensing in Norway

Gambling licenses are issued by the Norwegian Gambling and Foundation Authority (Iottstift). You have to contact them if you wish to set up any sort of gambling business in the Kingdom of Norway. Their website is available in English as well.

The two state owned companies dominate the sector with special gambling licenses. It’s not possible to for private commercial companies (except cruise ship operators) to acquire gambling gambling licenses, and offshore online gambling operators can also not apply for an online licence, despite many of them expressing interest in such (e.g.: Betsson, and all the bigger European internet gambling operators).

However, organisations with a humanitarian or socially beneficial purpose can obtain a licence for gambling activities (usually bingo or raffle, but bingo halls can have gaming machines too) if all the proceeds go to charity (after wages, costs, bonuses deducted).

Additionally, cruise ships can operate casinos as well (these can be commercial companies).

These two are the only exceptions to the tightly state controlled Norwegian gambling monopoly. And these exceptions do not extend to online activities.

There is an exception when it comes to online gambling, which is online bingo. Non-profit organizations, which operate bingo halls can apply for an online bingo license since 2020.

 

According to the Lottery Act non-profit organisations can conduct the following gambling activities with a licence:
  • post-drawn and pre-drawn lotteries, drawn by the Gaming Authority or other public authority
  • lotteries drawn by a commercial operator
  • banking poker, non-banking poker (e.g.: tournaments, cash games)
  • bingo
  • scratch cards
  • entertainment machines (gambling machines, slots, video poker)
  • any of the aforementioned gambling activities on Norwegian ships en route between Norwegian and foreign harbours

 

The following gambling activities do not require a licence in Norway:
  • Lotteries, and lottery-like games with a yearly turnover under NOK 200,000, if they are provided by organisations with a humanitarian and socially beneficial purpose. However, a licence is required if the organisations use a commercial company to arrange the gambling activities on their behalf.
  • Bazar, where the maximum prize is NOK 8,000, the maximum stake is NOK 5, and the total value of all prizes for each bazar is NOK 40,000 at most.

Norway gambling tax

Because there are no private operators in Norway, there is no specific gambling tax payable (the proceeds of the state owned companies are either used by the government or are supporting Norway charities and socially beneficial projects).

However, a 15% tax on gross gambling revenue was proposed for private companies after the eventual liberalization of the sector.

 

For players, taxation of gambling winnings in Norway:

The taxation of gambling winnings is set by Sections 5 to 50(1) of the Taxation Act7.

Gambling winnings are not taxable, as long as the gambling winnings are from Norwegian companies. But everything else is taxable:

Taxation of gambling winnings in Norway
Activity: Taxation:
gambling winnings from Norwegian companies not taxable
gambling winnings over NOK 10,000 (around € 1000, total, per tax year) from non-Norwegian sources taxable, 28%
gambling winnings below NOK 10,000 (around € 1000, total, per tax year) from non-Norwegian sources not taxable

Additionally, winnings from “comparable gambling activity” from the European Economic Area (e.g.: state owned lottery or sports betting companies in other European countries) are also tax exempt.

Keep in mind, winnings from commercial gambling operators within the EEA are not comparable gambling activities (only state owned gambling companies, which essentially operate as non-profits, similarly to the Norwegian gambling duopoly).

Legal gambling age in Norway: 18+

/Comment: Up until 2019 scratchcards (a.k.a scratch tickets, pull tabs) were an exception, and they were available for purchase from the age of 14 (uniquely in all of Europe). However, since 2019 they are also strictly 18+./

 

Other:

Social gambling is regulated in Norway, and private poker games held in private homes between people “in the same social circle” (provided the games do not have a “professional character”). Additionally, participants must be over 18, number less than ten, and have a maximum stake per player, per meeting of NOK 1,000 (around  €100).

 

According to the Ministry of Culture (responsible for the regulation of gambling) loot boxes could fall under Norwegian gambling laws if the in-game prize, reward can be traded for real money, or anything else of value outside the game.

It’s not specifically regulated by the gambling legislation yet, and so far no action was taken against video game companies, but it seems like loot boxes are considered gambling in Norway by the relevant authorities.

 

Fantasy & virtual sports betting is not specifically regulated in Norway.

Summary:

 

Casino gambling in Norway

Casinos in Norway: illegal

Online casino gambling in Norway: legal since 2012, state monopoly

 

There are no casinos in Norway, there are only interactive video terminals operated by Norsk Tipping (the gambling monopoly of Norway).

The amount a person may lose a month playing at these terminals is capped at NOK 2200 (around € 200), and you need a special card to play.

Even though Norway does not have casinos, it does have cruise ship casinos, which are just as big and luxurious as their land-based counterparts. You can watch the video review of one of these casinos below. This is the casino aboard the cruise ship Norwegian Encore (you can also see the interior of this casino on the picture at the top of the page):

You can find a full list of the Norwegian cruise ship casino here.

However, the casinos of these ships stay closed while in port, and only the passengers are allowed inside these casinos.

Slot halls are also illegal since 2007, in fact gaming machines apart from the interactive video terminals of Norsk Tipping are entirely illegal.

However, there is an exception to this ban, there are many “bingo halls” throughout the country, which also have slot machines and they act like mini casinos (they are slot halls basically, in most other countries they would be called slot halls or electronic casinos, there are 100+ of them, you can read about them in the next section).

And Norsk Tipping operates hundreds of venues with Multix and Belago terminals.

Online casinos are also legal, but it is a monopoly of Norsk Tipping AS, which operates KongKasino since 2012, which is reportedly a subpar casino platform (based on reviews, forum and social media posts), and most Norwegian players prefer offshore alternatives.

/Comment: Although, KongKasino received an overhaul in 2014, which enhanced its portfolio of games, and reviews have improved after 2014, but it’s still not as good as the big international platforms./

Since 2010, offshore online casinos are illegal, but this only effects companies and not the individual players. The government doesn’t block unlicensed offshore online gambling websites and players who visit foreign online casinos are not prosecuted at all.

The state monopoly is criticized by many, and Norway’s online gambling monopoly is a point of contention and it is often a politically charged topic as well.

Some offshore operators disregard the monopoly and continue to accept players from the country (you can see these online casinos below) but playing in those online casinos is technically illegal.

/Comment: Many people erroneously assume that it is illegal for these offshore casino websites to accept players from Norway, but that’s not actually true.

They are not registered or licensed in Norway, and according to the laws of the countries in which they are registered (e.g.: online gambling licensing hubs, such as the Channel Islands, Gibraltar, Malta, Cyprus etc…) it’s perfectly fine and legal for them to accept players from Norway (they are outside of the jurisdiction of Norway, Norwegian laws only apply within Norway and its integral areas and dependencies: Svalbard (including Bear Island), Jan Mayen, Peter I Island, Bouvet Island, Queen Maud Land)./

Bingo in Norway

Bingo halls in Norway: legal, operators require a licence

Online bingo in Norway: legal, operators require a licence

 

Bingo is legal and really popular in Norway, and there are many (around 100) bingo halls in the country (comment: popularity is mostly due to the lack of casinos, and these bingo halls with slot machines are the closest thing to casinos in Norway).

The reason these bingo slot halls are allowed to operate is because they are run by non-profit organizations and by the government (operated by Bingo Norsk AS, a subsidiary of Norsk Tipping), and the profits support various socially beneficial, charitable causes, events, organizations (comment: after the deduction of the wages of the employees, and the sizeable bonuses of the management…).

Usually these bingo parlours have slot machines and other types of gaming machines as well, in fact, very few of them are just traditional bingo halls.

The biggest bingo hall chain is probably Bingo Norsk with 44 venues (they also operate bingo parlours in Finland). You can see a list of all the Bingo Norsk venues below:

UPDATE COVID-19: These bingo halls are closed during the COVID-19 pandemic, because bingo is a social group activity.

Online bingo is also legal and it was a monopoly of Norsk Tipping. However, during the coronavirus pandemic online bingo was legalized for all bingo operators*.

The following bingo websites accept players from Norway.

Poker in Norway

Poker halls in Norway: legal, state monopoly

Online poker in Norway: legal, state monopoly

 

Poker is considered a game of chance and not a game of skill in the country.

Norway actually has many great poker players like Sigurd Eskeland, Chris “Moneymaker” (won the World Series of Poker in 2003), Anette Obrestad (the youngest bracelet winner in the World Series of Poker Europe, won in 2007), Preben Stokkan, Trygve Leite.

Despite this there is actually no place to play in the country legally, there are no casinos and no poker rooms.

However, since 2014 the Norwegian Poker Championship is being organized yearly in Oslo, the capital of Norway.

/Comment: It is probably organized by a non-profit organisation, that’s the loophole they are probably utilizing, which makes it legal. But I couldn’t find anything concrete, just online rumors. If you know how they get away with organizing a high profile annual poker tournament in the capital please let me know in the comments section. Thank you./

Poker is still not very popular in Norway because of the challenging legal landscape.

Most people who play poker in Norway do so online illegally, or play small stakes cash games with friends (small stakes cash games in the privacy of your home, with maximum of ten people, 18+, maximum NOK1,000 per game are legal since 2014).

Video poker machines were outlawed in 2007, along with slot machines.

Online poker is also legal, and it is similarly a monopoly.However, Norsk Tipping does not have an online poker website.

In Norway, only the state-owned gambling providers would be able to organize big, professional poker events, tournaments, or operate online poker sites but they don’t seem to be intersted in poker.

/Comment: It’s a missed opportunity, without local alternatives people will only turn to unlicensed offshore poker sites. After all, Norwegian citizens who paly poker online on foreign gambling websites are not prosecuted and online poker sites are not blocked./

Playing poker in offshore online poker networks is technically illegal, but this is not enforced, players are not prosecuted, or fined (in fact, all of the famous poker players of Norway trained, and are honing their skills, to this day, by playing online using foreign poker websites).

The poker websites below accept players from Norway.

Sports betting in Norway

Bookmakers, betting shops in Norway: legal since 1927, state monopoly

Online sports betting in Norway: legal, state monopoly

 

Sports betting is legal since 1927 in Norway, according to the The Totalisator Act*.

Even though parimutuel betting on horse racing is nowadays a negligible percentage of the gambling market (usually 5% or less) traditionally horse racing was a substantial pillar of the sports betting sector, and was seen as an “upper class gambling”, with none of the social stigma usually attached to games of chance.

Harness racing betting was also the first form of sports betting to be legalized in 1927, and it is the monopoly of Norsk Rikstoto, which focuses solely on harness racing. The biggest racetracks are: Drammen Racecourse and Øvrevoll Racecourse.

Sports betting was mainly responsible for the Payment Systems Act of 2010 (mentioned above, at the top of the page).

Betting on sports online on unlicensed websites was (and still is) rampant, and the state wanted to do something about it. And instead of offering alternatives by letting in private companies, or developing the bare bones sports betting section of Norsk Tipping they opted to restrict the players.

The good news is that the Norwegian government still doesn’t really block offshore sportsbooks, and offshore operators manged to circumvent this credit card ban.

Most Norwegian who bet on sports online are still using one of the bigger international online bookmakers, which is technically illegal, but bettors are not prosecuted.

The online sportsbooks below accept bettors from Norway.

Lottery in Norway

Lottery in Norway: legal since 1986, state monopoly

Online lottery in Norway: legal, state monopoly

 

Lottery is legal in Norway since 1986, according to the The Lottery Act*.

Lottery it is a monopoly of the state, and Norsk Tipping conducts the lotteries in Norway.

The Norsk Tipping Lotto was first introduced in 1986, and it was the first lottery game in the country. A player has to get 7 numbers out of 34 right to win the jackpot. Numbers are drawn weekly.

The most popular lottery game nowadays is probably Vikinglotto.

All Norwegian citizens are eligible to play if they are over 18 years of age. However, prior to 2019 scratchcards used to be 14+, uniquely in Europe, but since 2019 scratchcards are also 18.

Some people misunderstand the strict regulation, and think they can not purchase lottery tickets in other countries when they visit them as tourists. This is not true, Norsk Tipping has a monopoly on lottery within Norway only. You can still buy lottery tickets in other countries and participate in their lottery draws when you are staying abroad.

You can actually buy lottery tickets online too, from so called “lottery purchasing services” (lottery purchasing services are businesses, which purchase physical lottery tickets for you in a foreign country if you make a purchase on their website, you can see an example of such a website below, this is a legal loophole).

The following websites allow people from Norway to purchase lottery tickets online.

The following internet lottery sites allow players from Norway to purchase lottery tickets online:

 

Bitcoin wagering in Norway

Cryptocurrency gambling in Norway: not specifically regulated

 

Virtual currencies are not illegal in Norway.

The Norwegian Tax Administration issued a statement that they don’t consider bitcoin as money, from a legal point of view. They regard it as an asset*, and it is taxed either as an asset or currency based on usage.

There is no specific regulation regarding cryptocurrency gambling at all in Norway. The current gambling legislation doesn’t mention cryptocurrencies at all.

However, because bitcoin, litecoin, ethereum or other digital currencies are not accept as currency, the state-owned gambling providers (Norsk Tipping and Norsk Rikstoto, their brick & mortar venues and their online platforms) do not accept them.

Therefore, if you want to use alternative digital currencies you can only do it in a foreign online casino (you can see the online casinos, which accept bitcoin below).

Norwegian players can play in foreign online casinos, because the government does not prosecute individual players or blocks these websites, but it is technically illegal.

The bitcoin casinos below accept players from Norway.

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!

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).
