With a good, firm legal infrastructure for regulation of gaming since 1948, casinos in Denmark are rife and today the country is among the European Union’s highest in terms of casinos per capita. The industry has proven quite beneficial for the country, putting nearly DKK 1.5 billion (just about $250 million) annually into government coffers by way of taxation. Likewise, once Danish government plans to open up the country for online gambling licensing were approved by EU authorities, Denmark was instantly opened to dozens of poker websites in 2011.
Six casinos are open for business in Denmark, with locations in Copenhagen, Aalborg, Århus, Elsinore, Odense and Vejle all based in hotels. Wagers on slots are limited to DKK 20 (about $3.50 as of this writing) per spin, but up to a serious DKK 50,000 (about $9,000) may be bet per turn on other games of chance. And speaking of games of chance, casinos in Denmark offer all the typical table games, as well as the popularly-offered local favorite Viking Poker (of course).
According to Danish legislation, all land-based casinos there must register name, address, birthdate, and nationality for all guests, and photo ID is required.
