Spillemyndigheden, the Danish Gambling Authority, has published figures for March 2024.

Gross gaming revenue (GGR) increased by 5% to DKK 627m ($90.4m), of which online casinos contributed DKK 310m compared to the amount from land-based casinos, which was DKK 28m.

Betting accounted for 29% of GGR, but the DKK 183m total actually dropped 15% when compared to last year’s amount.

As for the distribution of sales channels, 69% of betting was done through mobile, 16% through land-based venues and 15% through a PC – unsurprisingly, the most popular day was Saturday which pulled in 22% of bets.

GGR from online casinos grew 20%, with 77% of the previously mentioned DKK 310m coming from gaming machines; 7% from blackjack, 6% from roulette and the rest split between commissions and 'other.'

While Saturday was the busiest day for betting, Friday was the day for online casinos, accounting for 19% of weekly activity.

Gaming machines grew 3% in GGR to DKK 106m, and the busiest time of day was 4pm.

Despite total GGR for land-based casinos seeming relatively low, at DKK 28m, this is still a 14% increase, suggesting the industry is seeing a recovery.

StopSpillet (StopGambling) held 32 conversations with concerned players during this period.

The self-exclusion register ROFUS reported that 50,070 people were registered by March 2024, with 32,261 of these being permanently excluded from gambling activity.

As for the gender distribution across all of ROFUS, including both permanent and temporary bans, 77% were men and 23% were women.
