Sports betting revenue totaled at DKK235m, a significant rise of 23.0% compared to June and 8.2% from the previous July.

Meanwhile, online casino revenue came to DKK229m, an increase of 8.0% from June. This was also a 13.9% rise year-on-year.

Slot machines generated DKK109m of the total revenue. This was a 7.9% monthly rise, but a year-on-year drop of 10.0%

Finally, land based casinos brought in DKK31m, up by 16.1% compared to June and 3.3% year-on-year. June was the first month this year that had a land-based revenue to report, after land-based casinos reopened from May 21st.

July was a busy month for regulatory news, as Spillemyndigheden announced that it would loosen certification requirements for testing labs and the Danish government released plans to merge state-owned gambling operator Danske Spil and the Danish Class Lottery.
