Danish Gaming Authority (Spillemyndigheden) will take land-based casino applications for licences until next year in January.
The Danish gaming regulator (Spillemyndigheden) has opened an application window for land-based casino licences.
The Authority will take applications for ten-year casino licences for operations based in Denmark and on board Danish ships until January 29, 2021.
Local municipalities, police directors, government ministries and the Danish Maritime Authority will all be involved in the vetting process when relevant.
Denmark has eight active land-based casino licences at the moment, including two on ferries. A new casino has initial permission to operate in Copenhagen and is expected to launch at the end of the year.
Spillemyndigheden says that when assessing applications it will place importance on the applicants’ experience and required financial liquidity to cover operating expenses.
Spillemyndigheden revealed this week that Denmark is one of only three countries in Europe that has more gaming revenue generated online than at land-based venues.
The online market share in Denmark has grown every year since 2012, and has seen the overall Danish gaming market grow by 25.6 per cent since 2012 to DKK9.8bn.
In June, the Danish Gaming Authority updated the technical standards and reporting requirements for iGaming licensees.
