Gibraltar 15 December, 2011 – Two of the largest operators in Denmark, Bet24 and Scandic Bookmakers, are joining Ongame’s poker network in the build-up to the opening of the country’s regulated online poker market on 1 January 2012.
We need specialists in poker to provide a complete poker experience, and that makes Ongame a perfect fit. Only Ongame can offer a presence in all markets as well as provide support for iPhone and Android devices.
First-mover advantage is important for an operator like us. Denmark is a very important market with fierce competition. Ongame enables us to be present with a premium poker experience in Denmark from day one.
Denmark is one of the most mature online poker markets in the world with 33.5% of their total gambling market attributed to online play compared with an average of 11% across Europe. According to H2 Gambling Capital, an independent research firm, this market share is expected to grow to 43% during 2012 in Denmark with online poker revenue predicted to grow more than 60% to €87 million.
Enabling our partners to enter every major regulated market on day one is our strategy. Ongame was among the first in Italy, first in France and we will soon be the first in Denmark and Spain as well.
