Danish gaming regulatory authority presents Player ID

The Danish gaming regulatory authority, Spillemyndigheden, has recently declared a new mandate set to take effect on October 1st. Under this regulation, players will be required to furnish a “Player ID” when making wagers at brick-and-mortar establishments like kiosks or wagering shops.

Every time someone places a wager at physical casinos, they must produce this special identification. There are no set standards for the design of the Player ID; it is entirely up to the different gaming providers. In the outcome, gaming casinos have the option of using a physical card or a virtual ID, like one built into a mobile app.

To obtain a Player ID, users should connect it to their account hosted by the respective gambling establishment, which is also the account where earnings are disbursed. The Player ID gives customers a chance to make deposit limitations, among other things. Furthermore, it acts as a protection to stop gamblers from losing their gains, particularly in cases like losing a wagering slip.

Notably, the Player ID system also has implications for those who have voluntarily self-excluded from casinos through ROFUS after October 1, 2023, as it extends the prohibition to physical retail gambling establishments as well.
