The increase in year-on-year in sales in Northern Europe was also acompanied by a 5% increase in market share for the retailer across the UK and Ireland with the post Christmas sales helping boost its position.
"This has been a lively Christmas with plenty of ups and downs and I am pleased to report that we have turned in a good performance. We have consolidated last year's strong gains and I am confident that we have gained further market share," said Dixons Group chief executive Sebastian James.
Just before Christmas Dixons delivered some of its strongest first half numbers for quite a while with the UK in particular showing growth for the retailer with operating profits increasing to £31.4m year-on-year.
It was also a good festive period for Game, which has bounced back since being rescued from administration last year with a 90% increase in store sales and a strong Christmas thanks to the arrival of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
The retailer also saw its web traffic increase by more than 200% and as well as the arrival of new consoles there was a boost from the success of Grand Theft Auto V and the latest Fifa 14 from EA.
