|Peter Sehestedt, speaking yesterday at the Law of Internet Gambling Conference in Lausanne Switzerland, outlined his proposed policy regarding recommendations to the Danish Ministry of Finance to allow Danish casino operators to offer regulated online gaming to Danish citizens. |
Sehestedt was eager to point out that the Danish approach was liberal in foresight towards online gaming, but was firm in mentioning that online gaming in Denmark still had a battle to fight before becoming reality. He recommends and promotes policy to encourage the business of legal providers and blocking illegal entities that offer unlicensed casinos, provide payment processing to unlicensed casinos or advertise illegal sites. Sehestedt also commented that he was sceptical about cross-boarder regulation working across the European Union and leaned toward sovereign nation policies regarding gambling as the only practical solution for the time being.
