Denmark iGaming Dashboard – Q1 2018
iGaming Business and Ficom Leisure are pleased to present the Denmark iGaming Dashboard, providing revenue and product metrics on the dot.dk regulated market.
Casino was the star performer in the Danish market during the first quarter of this year, experiencing its best quarter yet at €64.2m, up from €59.9m in the final quarter of last year.
Unfortunately, sports betting didn't fare so well, with GGR falling to €48.3m from €62.3m the previous quarter.
This meant that after finishing 2017 on an high with the strongest quarter to date, overall Denmark's igaming gross gaming revenue fell back to €118.3m in the first quarter of this year.
Although a drop on Q4 2017's €126.6m, it was still the second best quarter on record for the market and a 17% rise on the same period last year.
Danish operators have since the start of this year been allowed to offer online bingo, although as the dashboard shows, the vertical got off to a slow start, contributing just €2.0m in GGR. This was perhaps to be expected given its performance in other European markets.
Also in keeping with other European markets, poker continues to decline in Denmark and last quarter the vertical recorded its lowest performance since market liberalisation in 2012, falling to €3.8m from €4.3m the previous quarter.
Ficom Leisure also provides exclusive monthly estimates on the Italian online market in the Italy iGaming Dashboard, including operator market shares across casino, sports betting and poker, and on the New Jersey market in the New Jersey iGaming Dashboard. It also provides quarterly figures on the Spanish online market in the Spain iGaming Dashboard.
