The Danish Gambling Authority has previously published statistics on the Danish gambling market every quarter and in addition published selected key figures for the gambling market on a monthly basis.
We are now launching monthly statistics, which means that the figures will be available even faster on spillemyndigheden.dk than previously.
In the monthly statistics, you will find figures describing the Danish gambling market, the Danish Gambling Authority’s self-exclusion register (ROFUS) and our helpline for compulsive gambling StopSpillet.
Another novelty is that you can see how much Danes play via mobile phone and computer or how much is played online and in kiosks and arcades.
Monthly statistics are from January 2023, when the total gross gaming revenue (GGR) for betting, online casino, gaming machines and land-based casino was 595 million. This is an increase of DKK 82 million. DKK, corresponding to 15.9 per cent, compared to January 2022.

The increase for the two areas is due to arcades and land-based casinos being closed in January 2022 due to covid-19 restrictions, which they were not in January 2023.
The GGR for betting and online casino fell by 19 and 7 million DKK respectively in January 2023 compared to January 2022. This corresponds to 8.3 per cent respectively. and 2.7 per cent
