Spillemyndigheden, the Danish gambling regulator, has identified a number of skin gambling sites operating illegally in the country and began working with proper authorities to cease operation in Denmark.

The Spillemyndigheden has now contacted Denmark’s Internet Service Providers (ISP) and requested that access to these Counter-Strike skin gambling sites be blocked for not possessing the requisite licenses to provide their services in the country. With the support of the Copenhagen City Court, the blocking of these sites went into effect following a ruling as sought by the Danish Gambling Authority.

A total of 25 sites were targeted through the action that included ten gaming sites and 15 skin betting destinations. Birgitte Sand, Director of the Spillemyndigheden, commented on the activity, saying: “We use our authority to block websites on an ongoing basis. We do this to protect the gaming providers who are authorised to offer games in Denmark, but also to protect the players. Here we are focusing in particular on sites that offer skin betting, as they often target children and adolescents under the age of 18.”
