Denmark – Danish government proposes to merge Danske Spil with state lottery

Danske Spil

Danske Spil, Denmark’s state-owned gambling operator, may be merged with Danske Klasselotteri, the Danish Lottery. It is under a proposal that the government claims will benefit digital transformation and responsible gambling commitments.

According to Danish Finance Minister Nicolai Wammen, “the state’s gaming companies play an important role in contributing to a balanced and responsible gaming market in Denmark. I expect that a merger of the two companies will result in operational benefits and responsible gaming.”

The government needs the merger to complete before the end of 2021.

Danske Spil CEO Nikolas Lyhne-Knudsen stated that he accepts that a merger would benefit both Klasselotteriet and Danske Spil. “I am looking forward to the upcoming work, in which a concrete model for the merger must be developed. Also, I will take advantage of having a single, unified state gaming company,” he stated.
