For land-based casinos, GGR hit DKK30.0m for June. This was a slight downturn from DKK31.0m in May, but level with DKK30.0m generated in June 2022. The daily average GGR for land-based play during the month was DKK151,889.

Levelling up match fixing prevention efforts

Spillemyndigheden also announced partnerships with three sports integrity organisations to improve its match-fixing prevention monitoring.

The organisations are Sportradar Integrity Service, United Lotteries for Integrity in Sport and the International Betting Integrity Association.

The partnerships will see Spillemyndigheden receive alerts from all three companies if they suspect occurrences of match-fixing in events held in Denmark.

“We are very happy about the three cooperation agreements,” said Anders Dorph, director of Spillemyndigheden. “It will significantly strengthen our efforts against match-fixing that we now receive the alerts directly.

“Combined with the large amounts of data we ourselves have, in the long run it can make our work even more efficient. We will be able to react very quickly and help stop behaviour that threatens the integrity of the sport.”
