Danish gaming regulator Spillemyndigheden has reported gaming revenue of DKK604m (£67.7m/€81.1m/$93.0m) in November, a month that saw year-on-year revenue escalations across the board.

Overall, gaming revenue was up by 22.7% year-on-year and reached the highest total since April.

Sports betting revenue increased by 51.8%, the highest rise recorded by any sector in November. It jumped to DKK252m in November 2020 from DKK166m.

For the first 11 months of 2021, ports betting revenue came to DKK2.20bn , a 9.5% rise from the same period in 2020.

Online casino revenue also increased, from DKK198m to DKK218m- a yearly rise of 10.1%. In total, online casino revenue from January to November 2021 stands at DKK2.55bn – up 13.4% year-on-year.

Meanwhile, slot machine revenue rose only slightly, coming in at DKK102m. This was a yearly increase of 2.0%. Figures recorded for 2021 so far saw slot machine revenue total at DKK711m, a year-on-year decrease of 25.0%, as slot halls were closed for much of the early portion of the year.

Land based casinos also saw success, generating DKK32m in revenue throughout November- a 14.3% rise year-on-year. However, its revenue for 2021 so far decreased in yearly comparisons, from DKK226m to DKK205m, again because of closures.
