Advertising Restrictions in Norway for Online Gambling

The Norwegian government, through the Culture Minister, announced plans to end marketing and advertising from international operators who use the satellite channels based outside of the country. This has already been discussed with European Union officials and is intended to begin in the Spring of 2018. There is no doubt this is a new restriction to decrease the number of gamblers in the country. But as with any countermeasure there will no doubt be another offensive by the online gambling operators to usurp this new restriction.
