Surprising Data in Denmark’s 2Q Gambling Report 2019
The online gambling world is an ever-changing place. One trend after another takes the gambling community by storm and changes the art of playing casino games forever.
But those changes never come as a surprise, as every new trend has to begin somewhere. At first, you can see one country or another sporting the new change, and little by little, the rest of the world follows suit.
That is why if you want to understand what kind of trends will influence pokes online casinos in Australia, you need to look at rising trends around the globe.
A few days ago, the Danish Gambling Authority, also known as Spillemyndigheden, released the financial report for the second quarter of this year. Take a look at the numbers, and learn more about what online pokies players can anticipate!
What the Report Says
As always, the financial report took a look at four sectors of the gambling market: online casinos, land-based casinos, sports betting, and gaming machines.
In comparison to the 2Q last year, three out of those four sectors showed growth in revenue: all except for sports betting.
Gaming machines brought in 2.5% more cash than the previous year, land-based casino saw an increase of 6.9%, while online casinos showed the most promise with a18% increase in revenue.
Sports betting, on the other hand, showed a decrease of 2.1% in profits, which translates into 635 million DKK (approximately 139 million AUD). While it still is the most profitable type of gambling in Denmark, online casinos came extremely close to overpowering it, with 634 million DKK in profits.
Together, all gambling sectors brought in total revenue of 1.73 billion DKK (about 378 million AUD), which is 6.1% higher than the same quarter last year.
Now, when it comes to online gambling, pokies online games are still in the lead, accounting for more than 72% of this quarter’s income, followed by roulette (10%), and blackjack (8%).
Another interesting detail the report showed was that when comparing mobile to computer bingo, 51.5% of gamblers preferred to use their smartphones to play the game.
When looking at the bigger picture, those numbers show that mobile and online gambling are on the rise. That becomes even more prominent when there aren’t any interesting sports events capturing the public’s attention. It also shows that land-based casinos are not dead yet, as people are still drawn to the exhilarating experience such establishments provide.
By looking at the state of the Danish gambling market, you can easily predict what kind of trends will influence the Aussie casinos.
The numbers don't lie, and they show that playing casino games is something the population enjoys immensely. In turn, that means you can expect to see more mobile apps, more online casinos, and more land-based pokies machines everywhere you go!
