Stats and figures are gathered from official sources. We've found, however, that there is quite little context and analysis available on this data, so we did our own.

Lars is an iGaming veteran with +15 years in the industry and experience from both the B2B- and B2C- side of the online gambling industry. Full comments and analysis are available in the monthly news posts for each respective state, while this page is a basic resource page.
