Denmark’s gambling regulator Spillemyndigheden has launched a revamped version of the country’s Register of Voluntarily Excluded Players (Rofus).

The new-look Rofus website has been redesigned to make it easier for Danish players to self-exclude from gambling.

Spillemyndigheden said the revamped site is now simpler to navigate, but the functionality remains the same, with players still able to access a wide range of help and support through Rofus.

The site was inaccessible for a short period yesterday (5 December) while the update was completed, but the service is now running again as normal.

Rofus launched in 2012 and according to the most recent annual update published by Spillemyndigheden in January of this year, more than 30,000 have signed up to self-exclude from gambling.

At the time, Spillemyndigheden said approximately 4,000 people were signing up to Rofus every year. The 20-29 age group made up the bulk of those on the most recent list (30%), just ahead of the 30-39 bracket with 28%.

The regulator also noted that the majority of people registering with Rofus are men, with 76% of all those on the list being male and 24% female.
