Norway’s Ministry of Culture has proposed an amendment to the country’s Broadcasting Act that will block local residents’ access to ads from international gambling sites that serve local punters without license. Considering that the Norwegian government has not issued any licenses to operators other than the state’s gambling monopoly, the amendment will affect all international gambling operators. The government thinks this method is the solution to get more punters to choose the state-sponsored Norsk Tipping but data showed that it only got around 40% of the market’s online gross gaming revenue last year, unchanged from previous years.
