In January 2014 of the Years Norsk Tipping Has Finally Created Something Like a Casino, what they call Kong Kasino. Website norsk-tipping.no/kongkasino – this is the first online casino, which operates in Norway with the permission of the Norwegian authorities. It offers a variety of casino games, slot machines, bingo, video poker and scratch cards. Kong Kasino was launched with the aim of stopping the growth in the number of people, who play in foreign online casinos and withdraw money from the country.
Of course, Norsk Tipping has to follow strict rules, established by Norwegian gambling law. And players immediately noticed the significant differences between this casino and an online casino., owned by foreign companies.
- Kong Kasino has exactly working hours. You can imagine this in any online casino?! But Kong Kasino is open only with 07:00 to 03:00.
- The selection of games at Kong Kasino is much smaller, than traditional online casinos. At that time, foreign online casinos, usually, offer players hundreds of different games, Kong Kasino only has 68 games, currently available. Probably, this set of games will increase somewhat over time, but at the moment it is very poor.
- Slots, offered by Kong Kasino, are made only by Norsk Tipping and are different from those slot machines, to which people are used to. Since Norsk Tipping does not partner with well-known game developers, such as Net Entertainment and Microgaming, then in Kong Kasino you will not find the famous and popular all over the world slot machines.
- Kong Kasino has limited bets. for example, no more than 0,1 crowns per line. It is much less, than possible in foreign online casinos.
- Kong Kasino does not give players a bonus when opening an account. And other bonuses too.
Kong Kasino's only advantage is, that winnings are tax-free. Playing at other online casinos, Norwegian players must pay taxes on all individual income over 10 000 dollars. However, winning at Kong Kasino will never be as big., like in foreign online casinos, where with luck it is possible to win millions of dollars.
