Gaming Service to lower gambling age - Friday 12th of August 2005

The Danish Gaming Service is considering introducing banning access to betting shops for children under 16 and the proposal has been met with support by many MPs.

It would mean that in future, only the over 16s would be allowed to buy scratch cards or bet. But the leader of the Centre for Gambling Mania believes that 16 is still too young.

Although the Centre has no precise figures on how many young people are addicted to gambling, recent surveys in Norway have revealed that up to 11,000 teenagers are keen gamblers.
