“We are looking forward to, together with the Danish government, create a modern, regulated and responsible Danish gambling market”, says Petter Nylander, CEO Unibet.

Denmark together with Finland and Hungary, received a reasoned opinion from the European Commission in March 2007. The EU considered that the restrictions of the sports betting market are not compatible with existing EU law and that the measures taken by the Member States to restrict the free movement of sports betting services have not been shown to be necessary, proportionate and non-discriminatory.

Other countries that has received warnings or reasoned opinions from the European Commission are Sweden, France, Greece and Germany.
