Spillemyndigheden Takes On Anders Dorph As Director

The gambling authority of Denmark, Spillemyndigheden, has announced that Anders Dorph will assume the position of Director, effective from 1 November.

After working as the deputy director of the Danish Immigration Service, Dorph will join the regulator.

Morten Bødskov, Minister of Taxation, speaking on the new appointment, said: “The gaming authority plays a crucial role in the work of ensuring a proper and regulated gaming market in Denmark, where players are protected against unfair and illegal gaming. That is why I am glad that Anders Dorph has taken on the task.

“He has an extremely heavy professional profile with broad experience from politically led organizations and cooperation across authorities. Therefore, I look forward to benefiting from his experience.”

Dorph will take over from Morten Niels Jakobsen, who retired earlier this year from his job to join the Danish Valuation Agency as its new chief.

Dorph, celebrating his new job, added: “The Gaming Authority is an exciting agency that plays an important role in regulating the gaming market. That is why I am very much looking forward to the task and the collaboration with the many talented employees in the agency.”

This year, Spillemyndigheden has revised the technical criteria for game reporting under the Danish Gambling Act, establishing a special section for virtual sports games to be audited separately by licenced operators.

In addition to consumer security compliance, Spillemyndigheden ‘s additional technical specifications have been introduced, requiring all operators to promote the ROFUS self-exclusion scheme across their territories, in addition to ensuring that all customers set mandatory deposit limits upon registration.
