Live Poker Tournaments for Norway?

The Norwegian Minister for Culture, Thorhild Widvey is in support of live poker tournaments and hopes to host the Norwegian Poker Championship in 2015.

Norway has a reputation for restrictions and fines in terms of organizing live poker tournament events so opening up the market will be a welcomed change; however it is possible that anti-gambling organizations will fight against it.

Widvey proposes that to grant paid permits for tournaments in licensed land-based gambling locations and has asked Norway gambling regulator, Lotteritilsynet to prepare legislation by March 1, 2014 to launch a liberalization plan.

There is a need to bring in additional revenues and a reconsideration of online gambling could be in store for Portugal, the Netherlands, Ireland, Switzerland, Bosnia, Hungary, Romania, Lithuania and Sweden.
