Denmark Sees Decline in Online Poker

Danish gambling authority Spillemyndigheden has released figures showing a 20 percent decline in the country’s online poker market.

Revenues dropped from $8.9 million in the second quarter of 2013 to $7.1 million for the quarter in 2014. The 2013 figures already represented a drop from revenues of $9.8 million in 2012.

The regulator is predicting about $32.3 million for the year, a 7.7 percent decrease from 2013 and an 18.2 percent decrease from 2012.

General casino games remained strong in Denmark, however, rising 12.5 percent from $43 million in 2013 to $48.5 million in 2014.
