Online casinos in Norway

Legal status of digital casinos in Norway: legal since 2012, state monopoly

 

Online casinos are legal in Norway since 2012, but they are the monopoly of the state.

Norsk Tipping AS, the Norwegian gambling monopoly operates the only licensed Norwegian online casino KongKasino. However, many Norwegian players play online in foreign online casinos instead, which have better and more games (there is also a NOK 2200, around €200 limit per player, per month).

/Comment: In 2012, the Ministry of Culture decided that Norsk Tipping’s online offering will include some online casinos games as well, for the Norwegian market. This resulted in KongKasino (a webpage on the website of Norsk Tipping, not a standalone online casino), which offers some video slots, video poker, casino games (no online poker though).

KongKasino is reportedly a subpar casino platform (based on reviews, forum and social media posts, I don’t have personal experience with it, only Norwegian citizens can register and play), and most Norwegian players prefer offshore alternatives. 

Although, KongKasino received an overhaul in 2014, which enhanced its portfolio of games, and reviews have improved after that, but it’s still not as good as the big international platforms. And it still does not have online poker, much to chagrin of Norwegian poker players./

As much as 10% of the population regularly plays on unlicensed gambling platforms according to various studies1, and this number grows year by year.

Norwegian players who play online on foreign gambling websites are not prosecuted, but it is technically illegal to use anything else beside the state owned online platforms (e.g.: the online lottery, Norsk Bingo and KongKasino, details can be seen in the “other forms of online gambling in Norway” section near the bottom).

In 2010, a new gambling law called the Payment Systems Act was introduced, following in the tracks of the US Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006. The Payment Act2 does not target the online casinos themselves, instead, it affects payments made to these companies.

Norwegian Banks are no longer allowed to process payments to and from unlicensed online casinos using debit and credit cards.

/Comment: 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 Act3./

The official 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 the Norwegian 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, as mentioned above, most offshore gambling websites managed to find a solution, and Norwegian players can use credit cards while playing online).

The Payment Act did not curb the usage of foreign gambling platforms, and even to this day, Norwegians can freely paly online, and most of them (especially online poker players) do it regularly.

/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 – the European Economic Area. Therefore, the internet gambling monopoly is often criticized by other European countries, and the privatization is a recurring, often politicized topic./

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 threats4.

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.

By scrolling below you can find a list of online casinos, which accept Norwegian players.

 

Can tourists play online while visiting Norway?

Yes, both locals and tourists can freely play online.

Taxation of online casino sites in Norway: there is no specific online casino tax in Norway

 

For the players, taxation of online casino gambling winnings in Norway:

The taxation of gambling winnings is set by Sections 5 to 50(1) of the Taxation Act5.

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).

Land-based casinos in Norway

Legal status of casinos in Norway: illegal, except cruise ship casinos, slot halls are also illegal, but bingo halls act as a substitute

 

The main piece of the gambling legislation in Norway is the Gaming Scheme Act1. And according to this act land-based casino are illegal in Norway.

Consequently, there are no actual, bona fide casinos in Norway.

Slot halls are also illegal 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 (video poker machines are banned too)./

These interactive video terminals are the monopoly of the state-owned Norwegian gambling company Norsk Tipping AS.

Norsk Tipping operates hundreds of venues with these Multix and Belago terminals. These are not traditional slot machines, the terminals provide access to most of the games portfolio of Norsk Tipping: video slots, lottery, sports betting, instant games.

You need a special card to be able to play, they are 18+, and there is also a NOK 2200, around €200 limit per player, per month.

Apart from these places with the video terminals, there are over 100 bingo halls in the country. And these bingo halls all have gaming machines as well, they are are exempt from the ban on slot machines (they operate as mini casinos).

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…).

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:

Casino licensing and regulatory body of Norway:

Casino licenses are issued by the Norwegian Gambling and Foundation Authority (Iottstift). You have to contact them if you wish to get a cruise ship casino licence 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.

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).

Taxation of brick & mortar gambling establishments in Norway: there is no specific casino tax

 

For the players, taxation of casino winnings in Norway:

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

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

Taxation of casino 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).

Bitcoin casinos Norway

Legal status: not regulated

 

There is no specific regulation regarding bitcoin gambling in Norway.

However, bitcoin, litecoin and ethereum and other alternative digital currencies are not recognized as full fledged currencies in Norway. Consequently, right now, none of the venues and digital platforms of Norsk Tipping, none of the bingo halls and none of the cruise ship casinos accept any cryptocurrencies.

You can only place bets with virtual currencies by visiting foreign bitcoin gambling websites (you can see a list of them below).

 

Other forms of online gambling in Norway

As mentioned before, there are two main gambling operators that are allowed to offer their services in Norway, and these two also control the Norwegian online gambling market (making it a duopoly).

The first is Norsk Rikstoto which operates online and offline horse racing betting, and deals with the management of the equestrian sport and the harness race tracks in Norway.

The other online gambling operator, the significantly bigger one, is Norsk Tipping. Norsk Tipping controls practically all other forms of online gambling including online casino gambling, as well as online sports betting, online lottery and even online bingo through subsidiary Norsk Bingo AS.

The main form of sports betting in Norway is betting on football, ice hockey and handball.

Norsk Tipping also offers seven types of online lottery games, including Viking Lotto, the most popular and they also have Keno and scratchcards. Bingo and scratch cards are found in a section separate from the lottery but are also available online.

/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+./

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!
