Denmark breaks online casino revenue record as gambling grows in 2022

Denmark saw its gambling market grow in 2022, despite a drop in sports betting.

Spillemyndigheden, the Danish gambling authority, said total gross gaming revenue (GGR) for the year to 31 December 2022 came to DKK6.70bn ($991.4m/€910.1m/£799.8m), which was up 7.5% on the DKK6.23bn recorded in the previous year.

Online casino was the largest segment, comprising DKK2.88bn, which was up 2.1% on the 2021 figure. The segment was worth DKK272.3m in December, which was the largest amount since records began in 2012, and up 3.4% on December 2021.

The second largest segment, sports betting, was down 3.6% to DKK2.32bn despite the Fifa World Cup taking place during the year. December’s GGR figure of DKK135.5bn was the lowest return since October 2021 and down 35.0% on December 2021.

Slot machines generated DKK1.15bn in 2022, which was up considerably on the Covid-impacted 2021. Some DKK99.2m was taken in December 2022, up 44.5% on the same month in 2021.

Danish regulator cancels one of two injunctions against Tipwin

Danish regulator Spillemyndigheden has cancelled a money laundering injunction it issued against Tipwin earlier this year, but left a second injunction against the operator in place.

In June, the regulator said it had reported Tipwin to local police and issued injunctions over failings in the anti-money laundering efforts undertaken at its retail betting shops.

The regulator said the business had breached two different sections of the Danish Money Laundering Act: Section 7, which deals with risk assessments, and Section 8, about policies and practices for staff to detect possible cases of money laundering.

However, after what Spillemyndigheden described as “careful consideration”, it cancelled the injunction that related to Section 8. It said that, as Tipwin’s staff that should have been responsible for these practices were outsourced, the operator did not commit a failing here. However, it did note that the failings would be covered by a different section of the Act: Section 24.
