Those are some huge numbers which just shows the enormous improvement of the Danish online gambling market, not too much of surprise when we know it's one of the most solvent markets in Europe but obviously there was an entering of a good bookies and casinos which have made the difference probably.

Denmark really has impressive numbers there on the table. This only shows how the interest in online gambling is increasing, so that doesn't surprise me. But it is a small number of licenced casinos..
