The popular wake-up campaign from 2018 was rewarded with first place in the categories ‘Mobile phone’ and ‘Radio/Audio’, and third place in the ‘Promotion and Activation’ category, at the Gullblyanten advertising awards.
No longer possible to gamble away big prizes
Big prizes can lead to significantly higher spending on gaming and increase the risk of developing a gambling problem. Norsk Tipping has therefore eliminated the possibility of gambling away prizes of more than NOK 20,000. Instead, the winnings are paid straight into the customer’s bank account.

Important upgrade to login process for gaming terminals
We introduced so-called ‘two factor authentication’ for our gaming terminals to prevent the misuse of player cards. Since 1 May, all players have had to identify themselves using a one-time password sent to their mobile phone in addition to using their player card and PIN code. You can read more in the chapter on responsible gaming.

A large proportion of the surplus funds from Norsk Tipping goes to emergency preparedness at sea. The Norwegian Sea Rescue Society wanted to remind the public of this and therefore chose to call its new rescue boats, Norsk Tipping I and Norsk Tipping II.
New responsibility tool producing positive effects
One of the most important means of preventing gambling problems is to provide players with an overview of their spending. July was the first month in which customers were provided with a weekly overview of their net spending in the last 7, 30 and 365 days. This was welcomed by customers.

Important focus on female choreographers
Female dancers rule on stage but the performances are choreographed by men. We wanted to help change this when we started a collaboration with the Norwegian National Opera & Ballet aimed at strengthening the commitment to female choreographers. Read more in ‘Stories’.
Norsk Tipping hit the jackpot when the company was recertified in accordance with European Lotteries’ European Responsible Gaming Standards. “This is a feather in Norsk Tipping’s cap and is a clear sign that the work we are doing in relation to responsibility is bearing fruit,” said a proud Åsne Havnelid.
