Gambling revenue in Denmark increased 7.4% year-on-year during the second quarter after growth in the country’s land-based sector offset declines in sports betting and online casino.

Revenue for the three-month period was DKK1.69bn ($230.6m), up from DKK1.57bn in the corresponding quarter last year, according to figures released by Danish gambling regulator Spillemyndigheden.

This increase, the regulator said, was due to the reopening of land-based gambling facilities across the country following their partial closure during Q2 of 2021 due to national novel coronavirus (Covid-19) rules that were in place at the time.

The largest year-on-year growth came in the land-based casino sector, where revenue was 163.4% higher at DKK97.0m.
