Gaming machines run by Norsk Tipping, Norway’s state-owned lottery and betting company, will soon function under strict regulations designed to combat problem gambling among the gaming operator’s customers.
Under the new rules, machines will only take prepaid gaming cards, which in turn will be available only to Norwegians who are over 18 and have a bank account. The maximum bet per game will be limited to €6. Limits to daily and monthly losses will be imposed automatically. After each hour of continuous play, a machine will take a
10-minute break. No machines will operate between midnight and 7 a.m.
