LeoVegas new member of the NBO industry association


LeoVegas has become a new member of the Norwegian Industry Association for Online Gaming (Norsk Bransjeforening for Onlinespill/NBO). The NBO was established 18 months ago, under the leadership of Carl Fredrik Stenstrøm. The organization pushing for a major overhaul of Norway’s gambling regulatory framework. The NBO now includes five members: LeoVegas, Betsson Group, ComeOn, Kindred Group, and Gaming Innovation Group (GiG).

NBO is pushing against Norway’s current monopoly, which gives Norsk Rikstoto (horse race betting) and Norsk Tipping (lottery, sports betting, and casino) exclusive rights to organize gambling, to be scrapped in favor of a licensing regime open to all (regulated) operators.

LeoVegas communications director Hans Uhrus says: “We are impressed with the work that has been done, and will now join the association to strengthen this important alliance. By standing together against the monopoly policy, we can hopefully work out a solution that can address the need for a new and modern gaming policy.”
