Spillemyndigheden, the Danish Gambling Authority, has asked for advice on its new Anti-Money-Laundering System (AML) system.

The 'goAML' service is part of a system that flags potential concerns to the Money Laundering Secretariat.

Once this notification has been received, the Money Laundering Secretariat will then launch an investigation into the matter.

This is done by selecting an option from a drop-down list that best relates to the issue so that the investigators can better identify the issue.

However, for operators and other companies in the industry, there is only one indicator that can be selected, which is "money laundering through gambling."

Considering the depth of the industry, this is a broad statement that doesn’t give the Money Laundering department a lot to work with.

Following discussions between the Money Laundering Secretariat and Spillemyndigheden, the two have decided to open up the issue to others in the industry.

It is worth mentioning that the goAML indicator list is separate to the list used directly by the Money Laundering Secretariat, with the latter more concerned as to whether the issue is money laundering or terrorist financing.

On requesting proposals, the Spillemyndigheden said: “If you wish to provide input, you can send this to the Danish Gambling Authority at [email protected] before 5 February 2024.

“Please write 'Input for indicators' in the subject field. The Danish Gambling Authority will then forward the proposals to the Money Laundering Secretariat, which will assess whether the proposals can be implemented.”

Just before the new year, the Authority launched a new campaign for under-18s by using a comedian.
