| By Marese O'Hagan
Denmark's gaming revenue totaled at DKK609m (£70.7m/€81.8m/$85.3m) in April, the highest level recorded in 2022 so far.

This was 15.1% higher than the gross gaming revenue (GGR) recorded in April 2021.

Sports betting amounted to DKK222m for the month, down by 16.5% year-on-year but up by 43.2% from March.

GGR from online casino came to DKK242m. This was an increase of 7% monthly, but a decrease from DKK256m from April 2021.

Slot machine revenue accounted for DKK110m of the total, which was steady month-on-month. However, this was up significantly from DKK7m recorded in April last year, a period that included land-based closures related to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Land based casino grew just slightly, by one million – from March DKK34m in March to DKK35m in April. There was no comparable figure from April 2021, again due to Covid-19.
