      Hi dgybel,

      I'm sorry, I personally have no knowledge of any pending changes.

      I think you would be better off asking WH themselves if you are looking for a prompt answer on this one.

      Let us know if you get any news :)

      Kind regards,
      Gary

      Hi Damlqv,

      As your link contains another affiliate based website I have to removed it as per our forum principles

      I trust you understand.

      Best regards,
      Gary

      bummer. but yeah ofc :)

      The most important thing is that the pokersites who haven't got licens will be IP blocked like piratbay is, so you will have to withdraw from those sites before 1/1 2012 to avoid troubles getting your money.

      I got this message from Poker770 when I asked them:

      "By means of this message, we assure you that we are doing everything possible in order for our players from Denmark to continue their adventure with Poker770.

      Please note that all of our players will be informed in case we have any updates regarding this matter.

      Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us.

      Best regards,"

      From what I know, if the site is not on the list you will not be able to acces the website and log in to your acc in the software. So my advice would 100% be to withdraw, deposit on a site on the list and then maybe return to poker770 if they are granted a licens in the future. I take it that they will open up for new companies in the future (though the deadline to apply for them was oct. 17 2011).

      a few more sites that I figured got licens is.
      888 should have it (still waiting for confirmation from their support, but a 3rd part now says they have poker licens)
      Classic Poker
      Gnuf Poker
      Scandic Poker
      fortune poker
      Centrebet
      Danbook
      Betway
      All skins on Entraction

      link to the official site

      This is a horrible setup though since poker and casino is the same in the sheet but two different licens needed for the company.

      BTW. As a bonus all our winnings in poker will now be tax free by law. :)

      so if the site is regulated in DK and is paying taxes, the player himself does not have to do this anymore? Am I right? :f_eek:

      P.S. I think this thread should be moved to General Poker discussion, that more people would notice it.

      Yes, everything is done for you now, you just need to play. However the sites are not allowed to give rackback any more so until they find a solution for that we're screwed on that point.

      I figured that sites like Poker770 has applied for a licens but was not approved (probably because of security issues with the new login system) and willl be granted a licens as soon as they meet the requirements. Just keep in mind, if you stay on these sites, you cannot access your account before this is solved.
