“A serious problem for some”

“For most people, gambling is a pleasant recreation, and many Norwegians enjoy playing these games. But for some people, gambling has become a serious problem.

“That is why we continuously work on measures that ensure that gambling policy is based on accountability,” Minister of Culture and Gender Equality Abid Q. Raja said.

The Action Plan is financed through the profits of Norsk Tipping, the national lottery in Norway.
