Denmark Becomes Friendlier to Online Gambling Industry

Denmark and Schleswig-Holstein have something in the pipeline for online gamblers.

A Danish casino gambler can no longer say, ”Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.”

Denmark is a small but a sophisticated country. When it comes to gambling, the authorities differentiate between games of skill and games of chance as analysis coming from Danish gambling news points out.

The games of skill, such as poker or blackjack, are offered at Danish casinos. For the games of chance, the state lottery dominates the market. However, much is changing.

The Danish gambling laws were recently ”upgraded” for the modern technology. As an outcome, online gambling has been regulated, allowing access to this small but prosperous market.

It is a true niche play which some in the online casino industry seek to enter. One bigger player, Prima Networks, an operator of few dozen brands, is already entering the Danish casino market. What adds power to its entrance is that the company has teamed up with Microgaming.

Microgaming, as many casino industry insiders know, is one of the major gaming software providers offering a wide range of solutions to online casinos. These include online slots, blackjack, poker, baccarat, bingo, progressive jackpots, and live betting.

This makes us wonder: Will anyone team up with Playtech, the main competitor of Microgaming? Is the game worth playing?

In light of recent views, it probably is. The fact is that a German state of Schleswig-Holstein, in close proximity to Denmark, has liberalized its gambling laws. This, indeed, may allow for a double play: Denmark plus Schleswig.

These recent developments may offer some great opportunities for online casino operators including small mobile casino gambling outfits seeking to expand.

Sometimes a specialized focus can be very profitable.
