Norwegian Gambling Operator Association joined by LeoVegas. LeoVegas has become the newest affiliate of the Norwegian Association of Online Gaming Industry (Norsk Bransjeforening for Onlinespill / NBO), the body calling for a significant reform of the regulatory system for gambling in Norway.
NBO, under the leadership of Carl Fredrik Stenstrøm, NBO now has five members, with LeoVegas joining founders Betsson Group, ComeOn, Kindred Group and Gaming Innovation Group (GiG).
“This is an important signal we have worked well in the association’s first year,” Stenstrøm, a former commercial director for the country’s horse racing monopoly Norsk Rikstoto, commented.
LeoVegas communications director Hans Uhrus said the operator had been impressed by the NBO’s ability to establish itself as “a serious association with weight in the gaming debate” in a short space of time.
“We are impressed with the work that has been done, and will now joint the association to strengthen this importance alliance,” Uhrus said.
“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.”
