The Danish Gambling Authority has reported that total customer spend across all verticals in February fell 7.9 per cent year-on-year.
The total fall in February for betting, gaming machines, land-based casino and online casino to DKK496m, Spillemyndigheden reports, was driven by the former three sectors.
Indeed, the spend on betting, gaming machines and land-based casino decreased by 26.9 per cent, 10.7 per cent and 4.1 per cent, respectively, compared with February 2022.
However, the gross gaming revenue for online casino climbed 9.3 per cent year-on-year in February.
Elsewhere, the regulator has revealed a consultation on new requirements for inspection standards for land-based betting.
It is welcoming comments until May 5, with the updated inspection standards coming into force in October.
A statement read: “The Danish Gambling Authority expects the changes to be implemented by the licence holder no later than this date (October 1).
“Hereafter, the licence holder will have a three-month transition period in order to have the requirements tested and inspected.
“The Danish Gambling Authority must receive a certification report to document the changes no later than 31 December 2023.”
