Denmark iGaming Dashboard – Q4 2017

| By Joanne Christie
A surge in activity in the fourth quarter saw the Danish market finish the year on a record high, with its strongest quarter to date with gross gaming revenue of €126.6m

iGaming Business and Ficom Leisure are pleased to present the Denmark iGaming Dashboard, providing revenue and product metrics on the dot.dk regulated market.

The data is updated quarterly following the official release of figures from Denmark's Danish Gambling Authority. 

The Danish market finished the year on a high, with its strongest quarter to date with gross gaming revenue of €126.6m. The market experienced something of a surge in the fourth quarter of last year, with revenues up 12% on the previous quarter and 23% on the same period the previous year.

As a whole, the market grew 12.1% last year, a significant drop on the 19.9% of the previous year. However, as our recent Nordic Market Monitor showed, during the early years of Denmark’s regulated market, growth exceeded 20% per annum so it was perhaps to be expected that growth would moderate after several years in operation.

There may be further growth ahead for the market, however, following the liberalisation of horse race betting, which came into play at the beginning of this year and will allow fixed-odds betting on the sport for the first time.

Operators have also since the start of this year been allowed to offer online bingo, although it’s uncertain how much the vertical will contribute given its relatively small size in other markets, compared with bigger verticals such as betting and casino. As the dashboard below shows, Denmark’s market is split in a similar way to other European markets, with betting and casino leading market growth, while poker shows a declining trend.

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.

A European corporate advisory firm, Ficom Leisure is a specialist in all segments of the betting and gaming sector.
