Danes increasingly gamble online
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

The latest figures from the Danish Gambling Authority show that 54 percent of the Danes’ gambling in 2019 took place on online platforms. In comparison, the figure was 31 percent in 2012.

Thus, Danes increasingly choose virtual gaming machines and betting via mobile phones or computesr over the land-based casinos, gaming machines and paper pools coupons.

In the period from 2012–2019, the total gross gaming revenue (GGR) in Denmark increased from DKK 7.8 billion to DKK 9.8 billion. GGR is the international way of measuring the size of the gambling market. It is calculated based on the players’ stakes minus the winnings, and equals the amount that players have spent on gambling products.

“There is no doubt that the Danes’ preference to gamble online is reflected in the market development. The development in the gambling market seems to follow the general technological development, where an increasingly larger part of our everyday life takes place online”, says acting director of the Danish Gambling Authority Jan Madsen.

Danes gamble via their smart phones
The Danish Gambling Authority have examined the platforms used for online gambling. Here, the technologicaldevelopment is also clearly reflected, as more and more Danes prefer their mobile phones and tablets to computers.

Whereas only 11 percent of the spending on online casinos and online betting took place on mobile platforms in 2012, this share has increased to 61 percent in 2019.

“One of the Danish Gambling Authority’s most important tasks is to monitor the developments in the gambling market. Among other things, weu se the statistics to get an overview of where the market in heading, but also to organise our supervision of the gambling operators and thereby ensure that gambling in Denmark takes place fair and responsibly”, says acting director of the Danish Gambling Authority Jan Madsen.

Second place in Europe
Compared with other European countries, it is only Sweden that has a larger share of online gambling than Denmark. Here, 59 percent of the gambling market is online. The three Nordic countries, Sweden, Denmark and Norway are the only countries in which more than half of the spending on gambling products takes place online.

”There is a huge difference among the various gambling markets and the regulation in European countries. Some countries still have a monopoly on gambling, and in France, where online gambling only accounts for 24 percent of the market, there is still a strong tradition of lotto and betting on horse racing in bars instead of online”; says acting director of the Danish Gambling Authority Jan Madsen.

“Our Responsible gaming program is unlike any other in this market with the safety of the Kenyan sports betting fans in mind. Our online site contains unique control and safety features directly on the site. Our communication will initially be focused on responsible gaming messages and we will furthermore support “Gamehelp” an organisation that supports Kenyans with gaming problem behaviour. We are also the first gaming company to hire a Responsible Gaming Officer who will be dedicated to pursue and improve us in this area,“ noted Alex Kobia, Acting Managing Director of BetHigh Ltd.

“Betsafe’s commitment to football was demonstrated even before our launch when we signed a three-year sponsorship deal with both Gor Mahia FC and AFC Leopards in June 2020. We are very glad and proud to be able to support two of Kenya’s top-tier football clubs. With two of the largest fan bases in the country, these exciting partnerships provide Betsafe with the perfect platform to engage football fans with our unique offering. This will be followed up by investments and commitment to the progress and positive development of grassroots football and infrastructure that will literally provide the breeding grounds for Kenya’s budding football stars,” Alex Kobia continued.

“In terms of product, our ambition is to deliver an industry leading sportsbetting experience. Quick payouts are essential for both us and our customers and we will do our utmost to ensure that over time we are the best in the industry here. Our brand Betsafe is proven in more than +20 countries, but we have also been working hard to tailor our product to the Kenyan market. In terms of SMS betting, we have a revolutionary innovation that will allow our customers to easily make a bet through SMS without a gameID. Just SMS your bet and stake to #23333 and the bet will be placed. If the customer changes his or her mind the bet can be cancelled within a time window after the bet is placed. We will also be launching this service via Telegram. In the next couple of months, several new product features will be added and launched, such as a jackpots offerings.

“As a Company keen on responsible gaming, we wish to commend and appreciate the recent efforts made by the Kenyan Government in the last couple of years through the Regulator, Betting Control and Licensing Board, to introduce regulations to further regulate the industry and wish to confirm that we will strictly adhere and fully support the Regulator in its objective of ensuring responsible gaming is achieved in the market. We are indeed glad to be entering the market during this interesting time under this new environment that has been enabled by the Regulator.”

“We also wish to highlight that it is our intention to provide jobs in the Kenyan market in this industry which is largely driven on technology, and our objective is to provide jobs to at least 150 Kenyans within the next two years which in our estimation will have the domino effect of providing livelihoods to about 1000 Kenyans.”
