Spillemyndigheden has published its statistics for Q4 in 2021, revealing a 3.9% fall in revenue when compared to the same period in 2020.

The Danish Gambling Authority figures show that the total gross gaming revenue (BSI) for betting, online casino, slot machines and land-based casinos amounted to DKK 1,669m in Q4 2021, a decrease of DKK 67m from Q4 2020.

Revenues in Q4 was largely made up from online casinos and betting, which accounted for DKK 723m and DKK 593m, respectively.

Both of these revenue streams enjoyed an upsurge from the prior year, with online casino revenues increasing by 11.2% in 2021, and betting by 3.2%.

However, while online casino revenues increased by 7.2% in Q4, betting revenues actually decreased by 18.3%.

Meanwhile, slot machines endured a significant decline in 2021 as its revenues fell by 23.8%, to DKK 269m.

But its Q4 figures showed a slight improvement as it increased by 0.9%.

Land-based casino revenues increased dramatically in Q4 2021, rising 21.9%, something which can likely be attributed to the COVID-19 pandemic and its immediate effects in 2020.

In 2021, land-based casinos drew in DKK 84m in revenues, which is a 8.5% decrease when compared to Q4 2020.
