Norwegian Lotteries

Norway's national lottery, Norsk Tipping, was established in 1948 and has been wholly owned by the state since 1993. Lottery is available from a network of over 4,000 retailers and online. In addition to traditional lottery products, Norsk Tipping offers a bingo game called Extra, keno, Tipping (sports betting) and Joker (a card-based game).

Besides Norsk Tipping, there are several smaller charitable lotteries operating throughout Norway.

In 2009, a law was passed requiring the use of a player card for all games except scratch tickets. The new card was created as a way to combat problem gambling by tracking how much was being spent and giving players the ability to put limits on their spending.

In winter 2015, Norway allowed for five new private lottery licenses to be issued. Two of the licenses were awarded to Pantelotteri AS/Norwegian Red Cross and Lottovate Limited NUF/UNICEF almost immediately, with the remaining licenses to be awarded as suitable applicants are approved.
