Online casinos and bingo rooms are very popular in Norway, norwegians are know of to be big gamblers and provide the casino industry lots of money. Still though the goverment has from about 2010 tried to stop foreign gambling sites from taking money from norwegians. The norwegian gambling companies are Norsk Tipping and Rikstoto, and such are allowed to gamble with, though NT doesnt provide with huge amounts of winnings but is made recently to regulate the deposits from norwegian gamblers who might sometimes bet too much. Rikstoto is a norwegian horse racing betting company, were gamblers can use much more than Norsk Tipping..
After many norwegian started to gain debt cause of gambling, were even workers inside the norwegian companies stole money to gamble with, the rules are becoming more and more strict. Latest is that the norwegian goverment will stop players from famous betting sites like Betsson, though some say this with mirror sites can easily give an access to them anyways. This was a new approach and will settle in real life within one year. Greece and other countries have done the same and many gamblers fear it is not beneficial for them. Whatever you win on norwegian casino games, is 30 x times less than what you would have won from foreign casinos. The foreign companies operating within gambling have tried to offer Norway same as Norsk Tipping does, charities to sports organizations, but sadly without luck. The citizens of Norway were never asked and never had any influence of the decision fo the Opera house, were the question years ago was if Norway should have a casino in Oslo or an Opera house.
From long time ago, when norwegians didnt have PC and internet, gambling on horse betting was very much an interest and many could loose their homes and without income, as well their families. We all gamble and we all have a risk. Not beeng able to gamble free cause of some having problems, generalizing the whole population will go against the strict norwegian gambling laws as players will focus on foreign gambling sites more and more.
