Denmark Lottery Danske Spil

The origins of the Danish Lotto go right back to 1936 when the Denmark Olympic Comittee first sought to raise funds by offering betting. This did not happen at that time but after World War 2, the Danish Sports Federation & Danish Ball game Union pushed for betting to be legalised & for a Danish gaming company to be formulated.

Then in 1947 the ban on gambling was overturned when Copenhagen City Hall Square saw over 20,000 athletes make a demonstration to allow betting to made legal so that the profits would be able to support them and their Danish sporting causes.

These protestations worked and on July 21st 1948 the company Danske Tipstjeneste was founded with the very first legal Danish betting game 1 x 2 TOTO, which was based on the results of the Danish 1st division football games being sold on May 9th 1949.

Ever since these earliest days, The profits from all Danish Lotto & sport betting games have been used for the funding of sports, cultural and charity events and associations both large and small.

Danske Tipstjeneste offered only games of sports betting right up until 1989 when the Danish Lotto – Dansk Lotto – was initially introduced along with a wider range of games that were added.

In 1992 initial discussions took place between 5 Scandinavian countries with a view to introducing the world's first multi national lottery on Wednesdays. As a result, on March 17th 1993 the first Viking Lotto draw was held with Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Iceland all participating – in Denmark this would be known as the Onsdags Lotto. 9 countries are now invloved.

Oddset was also introduced by Danske Tipstjeneste as a series of betting games in 1993 and the year 2000 saw JOKER introduced as an option for when playing the Dansk Lotto or Vikinglotto.

In 2004 a daily lotto game KENO was released & in 2006 Danske Tipstjeneste changed its name to the now familiar Danske Spil.

The majority owner of Danske Spil is the Danish state who own 80% of the shares – whilst the Danish Sports Federation and Danish Gymnastics & Sports Association both own 10% each.

Today there are numerous Danish Lotto games that are offered by DanskSpil and these include EuroJackpot, Viking Lotto, the Danske Spil Lotto (Lotto Lørdag), Joker, Keno, Oddset, Dantoto, Tips, Casino, Bingo, Poker, Alt eller Intet and Quick among others.
