Spillemyndigheden publishes January 2023 report

The Danish Spillemyndigheden has recently published its market analysis for January of 2023 as part of its new monthly statistics reports.

The gambling regulator has recently changed its reporting frequency and will no longer publish its market reports once every quarter. This new monthly publishing schedule will allow the Spillemyndigheden to make important statistics available to the public sooner than ever before, which will include everything from the revenues of local gambling operators to changes in the number of registered self-excluded gamblers.

Spillemyndigheden’s first monthly report covers 2023’s first month. The headline figure for the country’s gambling market in the period was a combined sector revenue of just under 600 million Danish Kroner, which is about 87.8 million dollars. This represents a near 16% increase in comparison to the same month in the year prior.

This growth is mainly due to the expansion of the industry’s land-based sector, which saw an increase in revenue from retail casinos and gambling machines in the month. The two increased by 27 and 81 million Kroner year-over-year respectively, which was mainly driven by the loosening of pandemic restrictions in mid-2022.

Online gambling websites and sports wagering, on the other hand, saw a slight year-over-year decrease at around 3% and 8% respectively.

This report follows Spillemyndigheden’s recent publication on illegal gambling operators in the country, where the regulator summarized its activities countering unauthorized gaming in 2022. Read more about it here.

Lastly, on the same day, the gambling regulator also announced that it will be taking on anti-match-fixing responsibilities and will be working with the Danish match-fixing reporting service StopMatchfixing. Additionally, Spillemyndigheden will also be collaborating with international anti-match-fixing organizations and initiatives to further enhance the market’s sports integrity standards.
