Licensed online gambling revenue in Denmark came to DKK513m (£59.3m/€69.0m/$82.5m) in May, up 29.9% year-on-year but down from April, as land-based venues across the country reopened.
Sports betting revenue was down 24.8% month-on-month, but up 83.5% from May 2020, when sports across the world were suspended because of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.
Online casino revenue, meanwhile, was DKK247m, up 2.7% from 2020 and down 3.5% from April.
Revenue from land-based slots skyrocketed both month-on-month and year-on-year, as slot halls across the country were allowed to open for the first time, allowing for revenue of DKK55m.
This was more than four times the revenue recorded in both April 2021 and May 2020, when slot halls were closed, but some restaurants with slot machines were open for the last ten days of the month. However, this total was still 57.4% below slot revenue from May 2019.
Land-based casino revenue was a nonzero total for the first time this year, at DKK11..
