Strongest Quarter Yet For Danish Online Gambling

By Brian Cullingworth, Last updated Aug 8, 2014

Record performances from online casino and sports betting

Denmark's regulated gaming market generated gross gaming revenue of DKK1,195 million (Euro 160.3 million) in Q2-2014, with record performances from both sports betting and online casino during the period, reports the national regulator.
It was the strongest quarter yet from operators providing sports betting and online casino products since the opening of the Danish online market in January 2012, with sports betting results boosted by the World Cup football in Brazil during June and July.
In Q2 the GGR for betting reached 445 million DKK (Q2- million DKK) whilst the GGR for online casino increased to 270 million DKK (Q2- million DKK).
The regulator says that a high GGR for betting can mainly be explained by the FIFA World Cup from 12 June to 13 July, which led to temporary high betting activity at the end of the quarter.
The GGR for online casino grew around 8 percent compared to the same quarter in 2013, in line with the growth rate in the previous quarters.
Estimated total Danish gambling GGR for FY2014 has been set at 7.7 billion DKK (FY 2013 7.57 billion).

Brian Cullingworth

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
