Denmark.- The Danish gambling regulator Spillemyndigheden has reported that the country’s regulated market generated revenue of DKK565m (€76m) in September. That’s a rise of 19.5 per cent year-on-year and 14.4 per cent from August 2021.

Betting revenue was DKK214m, up 26.2 per cent year-on-year, and online casino revenue came in at DKK207m, up 22 per cent year-on-year but down 6.3 per cent from August, when GGR overall was down by more than 18 per cent month-on-month.

Slot machine revenue was up by just DKK1m year-on-year at DKK109m, returning to a stable level from before the Covid-19 pandemic.

Land-based casino revenue reached DKK35m for September, up 34.6 per cent and the highest monthly total since March 2018.

Spillemyndigheden has warned operators to respect regulations for the marketing of slots winnings. Operators are only allowed to promote slots winnings of up to DKK600 (€80.7), but the regulator says some slots have been advertising higher winnings.
