The fact that there is such a meager selection of online bookmakers has quite reasonably led to local bettors looking for possible alternatives and with certainty options are found.

Taking into account the fact that the operation of betting sites on the territory of Norway without a local license is prohibited by the state, the average number of Norwegians using foreign betting websites sites remains at a high level.
