From the statistics, it is clear that Norwegians have an insatiable appetite for gambling. But is it legal in Norway? Gambling is legal in Norway, but it is highly regulated with the state being a monopoly. Norsk Tipping and Norsk Rikstoto are the only licensed casinos and are run by the state.
When it comes to online casinos, the government has banned its citizens from gambling on international sites. Norway wants all gamblers to play on the state-owned casino - Norsk Tipping. But then, it is hard to regulate the online gambling industry so anyone can still access the vast network of international casinos that are available to Norwegian players.
