The regulator has planned to support operators in preparing for the new system by hosting a meeting to discuss the switch to MittID .The new system is the latest in measures rolled out by the Danish regulator to better protect players.Earlier this week, Spillemyndigheden released a series of new technical requirements which are to be implemented across online casino and sports betting verticals, including new requirements on self-exclusion procedures and new game reporting categories.Among the requirements, all licensees must reference Spillemyndigheden’s ‘ROFUS’ national self-exclusion database before engaging in push notification marketing via mobile devices.
