This week the Danish Gaming Authority reported on the country's gambling numbers, noting that revenues fell by 19.2% for the first half due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The results for the first half ending June 30th, 2020 were:

  • Revenues down 19.2% to DKK 2.7 billion
  • Danske Spil revenues down to DKK 82 million
  • Gaming machine revenues down 46.6% to DKK 382 million
  • Sportsbetting revenues down 19.6% to DKK 1.01 billion
  • Online casino revenues up 2.8% to DKK 1.23 billion

This has played out in the multiple financial reports we've seen recently. We'll be sure to keep following what's going on with Denmark's gambling industry and will update readers as we learn more.
