Norway Puts Ban on Online Gaming Payments
Norwegian Payments Ban Now Due to Come into Play in June

It remains to be seen now what EFTA’s response will be. Whether or not the ban was made to regulate online gambling, there is no doubt that the companies outside the realm of this ban will benefit greatly.
