Land-based sector helps Danish gaming revenue rise to DKK538m in February

Gaming revenue in Denmark came to DKK538m (£61.4m/€72.3m/$80.7m) in February, up 22.6% from February 2021.


This was driven by the recovery of land-based gaming, which more than offset a dip in betting and online gaming revenue for the month.

Figures from Danish regulator Spillemyndigheden reveal that online casino remained the largest vertical in terms of revenue. Across all licensees, revenue came to DKK214m, though this was down 2.0% from the same month of 2021.

Sports betting revenue for the month totalled DKK184m, down 17.0% from the DKK221m in February 2021, and a decline from DKK228m in January.

The land-based sector rebounded, however, as the comparable period in 2021 had been affected by Covid-19-related restrictions. Slot machines revenue amounted to DKK109m, after negligible revenue in February 2021. This was the highest total since October 2021 as much of the previous three months was also affected by restrictions.

Land-based casino, meanwhile, brought in DKK31m, again up from a negligible total in 2021.
