Denmark.- The Danish Gaming Authority (Spillemyndigheden) has opened an application window for land-based casino licences.

It will take applications for ten-year casino licences for operations based in Denmark and on board Danish ships until January 29, 2021.

Local municipalities, police directors, government ministries and the Danish Maritime Authority will all be involved in the vetting process when relevant.

Denmark has eight active land-based casino licences at the moment, including two on ferries. A new casino has initial permission to operate in Copenhagen and is expected to launch at the end of the year.

Spillemyndigheden says that when assessing applications it will place importance on the applicants’ experience and required financial liquidity to cover operating expenses.

Spillemyndigheden revealed this week that Denmark is one of only three countries in Europe that has more gaming revenue generated online than at land-based venues.
