Whistleblower scheme about money laundering
This whistleblower scheme can be used by employees and former employees of gambling operators to report gambling operators’ (potential) offences of the Anti-Money Laundering Act.
Who can file a report?
Employees and former employees at gambling operators and business partners to gambling operators can file a report to the whistleblower scheme.
If you are a player and want to file a report about a gambling operator’s offence of other legislation than the Anti-Money Laundering Act, for example the Danish Marketing Practices Act or responsible gambling, we refer you to the whistleblower scheme about the Danish Gambling Authority.
The Danish Gambling Authority recommend that reports, as far as possible, are made internally to employers and that reports to the Danish Gambling Authority are only made if a report cannot be made without a risk of potential reprisals.
You can report anonymously
In principle, reports to the Danish Gambling Authority via the whistleblower scheme are anonymous. It is, however, possible to state your identity and contact information in connection with the report. The information is stated in the textbox “description of (potential) breach”. After this, the Danish Gambling Authority can contact you if we need any further information.
If you report anonymously, the Danish Gambling Authority cannot contact you in case we need more information. Thus, it is important that you describe and document a potential offence as thoroughly and detailed as possible if you report anonymously.
You are welcome to attach documents.
