Retail reopening cause decline in Denmark’s online casino. Figures released Friday by Denmark’s Spillemyndigheden regulatory agency show that DKK1.53b (US$244.2m) revenue was created by locally licenced gambling operators in the three months ending September 30, 4.9 percent. This is a decrease from the same time last year but a substantial improvement from the Q2 2020 DKK1.16b produced.
Land-based casinos were the only vertical to post annual growth in Q3, a healthy 6% rise to DKK87m, while the nation’s slots halls were flat at DKK334m.
Online casino revenue slipped nearly 2% to DKK555m, with slots accounting for 74% of this sum, up around 1.6 points year-on-year. Roulette claimed nearly 10% while blackjack took a 7% slice. Desktop computers continue to fall out of favor with casino players, falling 4.5 points year-on-year to 40.4% in terms of stakes. Q3’s online casino revenue decline was far greater (-17.5%) from Q2’s total.
