Denmark's former monopoly operator Danske Spil has switched to the Microgaming Bingo Network following a change in its licence conditions.

The online bingo site had operated on the Microgaming-powered Prima Networks platform under a partnership with Novomatic-owned supplier Betware since 2013.

With the country’s online bingo sector recently liberalised and Danske Spil's licence amended, the operator has been able to move to the Microgaming Bingo Network and begin accepting players from outside Denmark for the first time.

The operator said the switch would see it benefit from increased player liquidity and a wider variety of games with bigger jackpots.

“Now bingo has been liberalised in Denmark, it is crucial for us that we have a strong, competitive product,” said Søren Schneider, head of product at Danske Licens Spil. “We need to ensure further growth and remain a strong market leader.

“Therefore, we are very pleased to move to the Microgaming Bingo Network and to continue developing the bingo product in close collaboration with Microgaming.”

Microgaming director of network games Jean-Luc Ferriere added: “We welcome Danske Spil to the Microgaming Bingo Network with arms wide open. This a major development for all concerned. It’s early days yet but already the signs are very positive for Danske Spil and its players.”
