Danish Gambling Market Sees Significant Growth in December 2023
The Danish Gambling Authority has released the gambling market statistics for December 2023, revealing a notable increase across betting, online casinos, slot machines, and land-based casinos. This growth underscores a positive trend in the industry, with a 22.6% rise compared to December 2022.
Comprehensive Growth Across the Board
In December 2023, the Gross Gaming Revenue (GGR) for the combined sectors of betting, online casino, slot machines, and land-based casinos reached DKK 665 million, marking a significant 22.6% increase from the previous year.
This upswing is attributed to substantial growth in betting, online casinos, and land-based casinos, with only a slight decline observed in the slot machine sector.
The exceptional 67% surge in betting revenue is particularly noteworthy, attributed to a lower rate of return in December 2023 compared to the same period in 2022. This anomaly provides valuable insight into the fluctuating dynamics of the betting segment.
Annual Overview and Future Outlook
The cumulative GGR for 2023 across all four sectors tallied up to DKK 6,795 million, registering a modest 1.0% growth over 2022. This year-on-year comparison, calculated at current prices, highlights the steady progress and resilience of the Danish gambling market amidst various challenges.
The Danish Gambling Authority’s latest data not only reflects the robust health of Denmark’s gambling sector but also sets a positive tone for the industry’s prospects in 2024. As stakeholders analyze these trends, the focus will likely shift towards sustaining this growth trajectory and exploring new opportunities for expansion and innovation within the regulatory framework.
