Firstly, by generating tax revenue for the Danish state, which gaming providers without a Danish gaming license do not do. As a condition for obtaining a Danish gaming license, the gaming providers must pay a gaming fee of 28 per cent of the revenue. Since 2012, the online gaming market has grown from 2.1 billion to 4.8 billion in 2019 per cent and has distinguished the Danish gaming market as one of the most successful globally.
Today, the Danish state’s revenue from online gaming amounts to approx. 1.5 billion DKK DKK annually. The rising gross income from the licensed, regulated market shows that more people are playing online today than on physical slot machines and casinos. Still, it is also an expression of the fact that players are moving from the black market to the controlled and taxed market – which is positive.
Second, we create a secure online gaming environment for customers by conducting screenings of players both before and after they sign up to help identify personal issues or financial risks. The members of Spillebranchen are thus obliged to actively participate in the prevention of gambling addiction, money laundering and match-fixing.
