NetEnt has successfully completed the integration
process and a selection of its games are now live and available on
www.vegas.dk, a brand within Danske Spil’s online casino network.
In March this year NetEnt, leading provider of
digital gaming solutions, signed an agreement with Danske Spil to supply the
Danish regulated market with casino games for both mobile and desktop.
Danske Spil provides online and land-based gaming
services to consumers in Denmark. It is owned by the Danish government and
hence also a member of the World Lottery Association (WLA). Danske Spil is
renowned as one of the leading lottery operators in the world.
“I am very pleased to announce that we have
launched our games with Danske Spil, one of the leading WLA operators. I am
confident that players in Denmark will enjoy our world-class thrilling
games”, says Enrico Bradamante, MD of NetEnt
Malta Ltd and Chief of European Market Operations.

NetEnt AB (publ), previously Net Entertainment,

to the world’s most successful online casino operators. Since its inception in
1996, NetEnt has been a true pioneer in driving the market with thrilling games
powered by a cutting-edge platform. NetEnt is committed to helping customers
stay ahead of the competition, is listed on NASDAQ OMX Stockholm (NET–B) and

Danske Spil A/S, previously known as Dansk
Tipstjeneste A/S, was founded in 1948. Until 1989, football betting was the
only product, but this changed in 1989 when the company was authorized to also
offer lottery services. In 1992 the first scratch card, Quick, entered the
market, and in 1994 sports betting (Oddset) was launched. Since 2000, Danske
Spil has also offered betting on horse- and dograce. In 2001, the subsidiary
Danske Automatspil was founded. This subsidiary handles slot
machines and merged with Elite Gaming A/S in 2011. The following
year, Danske Spil bought the remaining 50.1 percent of Elite Gaming, obtaining
100 percent ownership of the company. In 2010 the Danish parliament unanimously
passed the partial liberalization of the Danish gaming legislation, which
allowed other suppliers of games to apply for licenses to offer sports- and
online gaming products. The law entered into force in 2012, which prompted
Danske Spil to establish two subsidiaries: Danske Lotteri Spil A/S, which
handles the monopolized games, and Danske Licens Spil A/S, which operates the
liberalized games. Danske Lotteri Spil offers, among other things, Lotto,
Onsdags Lotto, Joker, Eurojackpot, Keno, Quick, Bingo and Dantoto. Danske
Licens Spil offers, among other things, Poker, Casino, Oddset, Tips and Zezam.
The Danish State owns 80% of Danske Spil.
