Online casinos in Denmark

Legal status of digital casinos in Denmark: legal since 2012, operators require a licence

Online casino gambling is legal in Denmark. The main piece of online gambling legislation regulating online casinos is the 2012 Gambling Act1, and its subsequent amendments.

The gambling act opened the way for private operators (before 2012 the sector was dominated by illegally operating offshore online casinos, which didn’t pay any taxes).

Only licensed operators can accept players from Denmark.

Because Denmark is an EU country Article 56 TFEU2 (EU gambling directives) also apply.

Prior to 2012, all online gambling in Denmark was officially the monopoly of the state-owned company, Danske Spil, the national lottery company.

The reason why this cash cow of the government was partially dismantled was that the European Commission criticized this total internet gambling monopoly in 20093. This resulted in the eventual liberalization in 2012.

/Comment: It was only partially dismantled, Danske Spil is still an active operator, in fact it is the biggest operator in all the major online gambling segments of the Danish gambling industry (the same segments it was active in prior to the liberalization, and still generates by far the most tax revenue)./

In a short: According to Article 56 TFEU, online casinos registered and licensed in other EU countries (or countries part of the single Eurozone economic area) must be provided with a way to obtain local online gambling licenses in all EU countries (unless gambling is specifically illegal in that country). If this is not case (as it was in Denmark prior to 2012), it is violating the free flow of services within the Eurozone, which is against EU laws.

This was rectified, and since 2012 private companies have been able to apply for online casino licences. However, many operators, which got licensed later left the country, due to the high internet gambling taxation (see below, online lottery, keno, pigeon and horse racing betting is still a monopoly of Danske Spil, which is the by far the biggest online gambling operator in the country, even to this day).

By scrolling below, you can find a list of online casinos, which accept Danish players.

 

Can tourists play online while visiting Denmark?

Yes, tourist (or non-citizen expats, or illegal migrants) can play online freely while enjoying their stay in the country.

 

Online casino licensing and regulatory body of the Kingdom of Denmark: 

“Spillemyndigheden”, the Danish Gambling Authority is tasked with enforcing, overseeing and licensing gambling establishments, land-based or online, within the country. Their website is available in English as well.

You have to contact them if you wish to set up an online casino in the country.

Gambling winnings are taxed as income (income tax applies). It is subject to the extremely high personal income tax (up to 62%, depending on the amount you have won, and the total amount of income from all sources in that tax year).

Age requirement of Danish online casinos: 18+

The minimum age for casino gambling in Denmark is 18, which is quite strictly enforced even online (they will ask for you ID, passport and/or driver’s licence). The 2012 gambling law contained provisions for the implementation of the NemID system, which is the only way for Danish players to log in to domestic online casinos.

Land-based casinos in Denmark

Legal status of casinos in Denmark: legal since 1902, operators require a licence

 

Casinos are legal in Denmark since 1902. Casino Marienlyst (see below), was Denmark’s first casinos, and it holds the title of the oldest still running casino as well.

Land-based casinos are also regulated by the 2012 Gambling Act1 (already mentioned above, in the online casino section, this is the main piece of the current Danish gambling legislation, regulates both offline and online gambling), and licenses are issued similarly by the Danish Gambling Authority (see blow for details, at the casino licensing section).

The brick and mortar casino market is completely liberalized, meaning private operators can apply for a licence.

However, the number of casino licences is very limited. In fact, apart from the casino licences already in circulation by 2012, only a single additional company has been given permission to open a casino since 2012. New applicants for casino licences will only be considered if one of the existing licences become vacant, at least currently. In theory, the government may decide to increase the number of casino licences, but currently there are no plans to do so.

/Comment: Although, the government would probably not say no to a really big investment project, especially in the countryside./

At the moment there are six casinos in operation in Danish cities: in Copenhagen, Elsinore, Odense, Vejle, Aalborg and Arlhus (see below, in the Danish casino list).

There is also a seventh “casino” in Denmark, operating part-time: the compass casino aboard the Oslo ferry (not on the list).

The casino regulations similarly apply to vessels in the Danish maritime territory, which includes the ferry carrying passengers between Denmark and Norway. Floating casinos, casino ships also require a casino license.

While actual casino licences are currently not being issued, the Danish Gambling Authority differentiates between actual casinos and gaming machines in licensed  venues (liquor license).

/Comment: These venues with gaming machines are most often called “slot halls” or “slot parlours in other countries but the Danish gambling legislation does not name them as such./

Gaming machine, or AWP licences may be obtained for slot machines placed in businesses with a liquor license. Even venues without a liquor license can apply, although, they may only keep up to three gaming machines on the premises.

Actually, the gambling market in Denmark is dominated by these smaller gambling venues with slots and video poker machines. Their market share is more than 10x bigger than the casinos!

Most pubs have at least a couple of  machines. And there are hundreds of places with gaming machines (which is quite a lot for a country with only 5.8 million people).

The exact number is not known, because most of these places have no online presence whatsoever (and I’m not aware of any official list of such venues, if you know of one, please let me know in the comments section, thank you).

Slot machines outside of casinos are even taxed at a lower level (see below in the casino taxation section).

The biggest casino group in Denmark is Casinos Austria, which operates 3 out of the 6 casinos in the country.

You can find all the currently operating brick and mortar casinos in the list below.

 

Can locals visit the casinos in Denmark?

Yes, both locals and tourists can play in the casinos.

 

Casino licensing and regulatory body of Denmark:

The so called “Spillemyndigheden”, Danish Gambling Authority is tasked with enforcing, overseeing and licensing gambling establishments, land-based or online, within the country. Their website is available in English as well.

You can check here whether your business requires a gambling licence.

Lotteries, lottery type games, keno and bingo are not part of this licensing system. Danske Spil, the national lottery of Denmark has a monopoly on lotteries, instant games, bingo, keno, horse racing, and they handle the licensing of these activities.

The Danish Gambling Authority has issued over 50 licences so far to both local and international gambling companies3.

Taxation of brick & mortar gambling establishments in Denmark:

The rate of gambling tax is determined by the Act No. 187/2016 on Gambling Tax3.

The gambling tax rate is 23%, except in case of technical games and lottery, which are both taxed at a higher 35% tax rate. The tax base is gross winnings of the casino (the amount the casino makes on a player, how much you lose).

/Comment: Technical games means gaming machines (slots and video poker or online slots). Also, taxing gross winnings is a fantastic idea, most countries tax gross gambling revenue instead, this is significantly better, this does not incentivize casinos to make the players lose money./

The gambling tax is paid on top of the usual taxes (e.g.: corporate tax, which is 19%).

 

For the players, taxation of gambling winnings in Denmark:

Gambling winnings were not taxed prior to 2020. However, currently winnings from raffles and lottery are now subject to a 15% withholding tax if they exceed CZK 1 million (per occasion, not total for the whole year).

Winnings from every other type of game of chance are taxed as income (15% income tax applies). The winning stake/bet can be deducted as expense.

List of all casinos in Denmark

This is a list of all casinos in the country, with address, opening hours, number and types of games, dress code, entrance fee, reviews and a video of each gambling establishment if one is available.

 

1., Casino Copenhagen
This is a picture of the hotel part of Casino Copenhagen, taken during a rainy Autumn day, from the parking lot. This is the first casino on this list of all Danish casinos, you can find the other gaming venues on this list under this one. This is currently the biggest gambling venue in the Kingdom of Denmark. To the right of the picture is a description of the casino and its address., opening hours, dress code
Casino Copenhagen

Casino Copenhagen, address: Amager Boulevard 70 DK-2300 Copenhagen

This is the largest casino in Denmark, and as the name suggest, it is located in the capital. Casino Copenhagen is owned by Casinos Austria (owners of all 12 Austrian casinos, and about 40+ worldwide), which is the biggest casino company of Denmark and owns 3 out of the 6 casinos in the country.

Apart from being the biggest casino in the country and Northern Europe as well, Casino Copenhagen is also attached to a huge hotel (pictured on the left).

However, by international standards this is only a small casino. There are actually no really big casinos in Denmark.

Even though the interior of the casinos is fantastic, the exterior leaves a lot to be desired (it looks like an ugly metallic cylinder and the hotel part is a concrete slab, looks like a Soviet era apartment building), especially compared to other beautiful historic European casinos located in landmark designated buildings (this is one of the ugliest casinos in Europe, interestingly, most of the ugly casinos in Europe are owned by Casinos Austria AG).

 

Games: around 140 slot machines and around 24 tables (American Roulette, blackjack, punto banco) + 20 electronic roulette terminals + money wheel

The casino is open since 1991, and it is located within Hotel Royal, a historic building from 1838.

Sadly, they don1t have an English website.

 

Games: around 70 gaming machines and around 7 tables (French Roulette, blackjack) + 14 electronic roulette terminals

They have a poker room with biweekly tournaments and cash games on Tuesdays and Thursdays (Omaha, 7-card Stud, Texas hold’em).

The poker room is open:

Tuesday-Thursday: 19:00 – 03:00
Friday-Saturday: 19:00 – 04:00

Sadly there is no tournament schedule on the website.

6., Casino Odense
This is a picture of the building of Casino Odense. This is the last casino on this list of all Danish casinos, you can find the other gaming venues on this list under this one. You can read more about the casino next to the picture.
Casino Odense

Casino Odense, address: Claus Bergs Gade 7, 5000 Odense

Casino Odense is the third venue of Austrian Casinos AG in Denmark. It is a very small (and IMO ugly) gaming venue.

The marketing slogan of the place is “enjoy a paradise of new and exciting experiences” (from the official website), which is way too grand for such a hole-in-the-wall casino.

/Comment: A more sensible slogan would have been, e.g: “Comfortable, cozy casino island in the heart of Odense. Relax, unwind and have fun in the happiest little casino in Denmark.” But whatever, nobody really cares about these marketing fillers anyway./

Despite belonging to the huge and prestigious (and scandal and corruption allegations riddled….) Casinos Austria group, the machines are really old and the tables are also lower quality than one would expect. The interior is also not what I would have expected from one of the biggest casino companies in the world.

 

Games: around 40 (slots + video poker) and around 9 tables (5 American Roulette, 4 blackjack)

They also have a poker section with a few poker tables. Poker tournament schedule can be found here. Not much activity, no cash games it seems like.

 

Video of Casino Odense:

 

Opening hours: Every day 15.00 – 02.00

 

UPDATE COVID-19: open

Dress code: There is an official dress code, it’s smart casual. From the official website:

  • Plain nicely “going out” clothes.
  • No sports wear.
  • We do not accept bags, PCs, tablets etc. for storage.

Entrance fee:

Day ticket 80, – dkk.
Week ticket 120, – dkk.

Monthly ticket 300, – dkk.

Yearly card 1.200, – dkk.

Wardrobe 20, – dkk

 

Meta review analysis: surprisingly the casino gets good reviews, 4/5, no major problems according to the reviews

 

18+, ID, and passport for tourists, is needed to enter.

Apart from the 6 land-based casinos there are sea vessels with casinos operating on the waters of Denmark e.g.: ferries between Norway and Denmark, DFDS Pearl Seaway Compass Casino, but only one of the ferries is a casino (which only operates part time, not open the entire year), the others only have slots. These are not on the list. They will be added with a future update.

 

Bitcoin casinos in Denmark

Legal status: not specifically regulated

 

Bitcoin casinos are considered gambling establishments under the 2012 Gambling Act, and would require a licence to operate legally. There have been no licences issued to online bitcoin casinos in Denmark to date and none of the existing land-based casinos accept bitcoin or other virtual currency.

There aren’t any bitcoin casinos in Denmark.

This is because cryptos are still not accepted as currency officially, and therefore they would be problematic from a taxation & accounting point of view.

It’s very likely that brick & mortar casinos will only accept bitcoin in Denmark, when it will recognized as a currency officially (online casinos could in theory accept it sooner by utilizing various payment processors).

Players can use their cryptocurrency only in international bitcoin casinos (some of these have Danish licenses as well, in addition to many other gambling licenses, and this way they can accept crypto as well).

The bitcoin casinos below accept players from Denmark and bitcoin, litecoin and at least one of them ethereum as well.

 

Online gambling in Denmark other than online casinos

The 2012 gambling act opened up quite a few possibilities for investors and online gambling companies in Denmark. However, this is mostly limited to online casinos (excluding lottery type games and instant bingo, a very popular form of bingo in Denmark, monopoly of Danske Spil).

Online poker is covered by the online casino license, as poker is considered a combination game of skill and luck.

Danske Spil, the national gambling company actively competes in these categories, because apart from online lottery, they also have sports betting, internet bingo and a digital casino as well. Unsurprisingly they are by far the biggest online gambling operator (in terms of revenue), which according to many  violates EU free market rules (there was a lot of litigation in the background regarding this).

The following online gambling websites accept players from Denmark:

Thank you for visiting:
This is a selfie of the author and owner of Simon's Casino Gambling Blog, me, Simon András Péter, a.k.a. by the internet pseudonym SimonTheSorcerer, owner of Simon's Online Marketing Kft. This is the homepage of my online casino gambling blog, you can see what's on the website, the links to all the different sections of the website.
That's me, Simon, thank you for visiting.
Don't worry, this is not an ad! ;) Just wanted to make sure to tell you that I'm glad you visited this gambling blog. I'm Simon, the only author and the man behind this blog (if you are interested, my unusual life story can be found on the homepage, under the "About me" dropdown section).
I'm an independent gambling blogger since 2012. In this sector dominated by huge media companies, casino operators and online marketing networks, who can easily spend $ millions on their online gambling blogs, it's not easy for an independent nobody like me to survive. It took me about 6 years, working my ass off, to even have a chance to be noticed by visitors like you. I'm lucky enough that for a few years now, I make enough money to be able to do this full time (before that, I had part-time jobs, ghost writing gigs, online marketing this and that).
Now I can finally do this full time, thanks to visitors like you! And it means a lot! If you are interested, please bookmark this site (no social media profiles, I no longer have any, but please feel free to share anything on any social media networks, if you still use them). I don't have any money to advertise, and if you have a personal blog, any social media profile, please mention my gambling blog and link back to it. This the only way for a small website like this to grow. Thank you!

Logo of Kiva.org. You can read about my non-profit activity right next to the picture.
Charity: As a way to help others, to give back, I sometimes donate to Kiva. If you click on the ads on the website, I make some money. And in a good month, if I make more than my expenses, I donate to people and projects on Kiva.
Kiva helps young entrepreneurs in developing countries, which is an issue close to my heart for obvious reasons. If you have the means, please sign up with the revolutionary non-profit company Kiva.org and help people lift themselves out of poverty, through hard-work, and an initial investment (non-profit loan). These non-profit loans encourage entrepreneurship and hard work instead of creating a dependent class that is afraid to get a job, or start a business (because if they did, they would no longer get support and free money, disincentivezing hard work and entrepreneurship). This is the right way to fight poverty in developing countries (or anywhere else really), and if this is something you are interested in, and if you would like to know more, or to help out, please check out Kiva.org here. Thank you!
