The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Online Gambling Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the global online gambling market reached a value of US$ 72.31 Billion in 2021. Online gambling refers to betting activities on casinos or sport-type games over the internet. It operates via the internet and works on multiple server points across the globe. Online gambling includes popular games such as roulette, poker, slots, lotteries, bingo, and keno. The gambling process involves placing a wager on a game with the assistance of a bookie or gambling enterprise. The games are downloaded through necessary software on smart devices, which does not require physical interaction between the players and bookies.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Online Gambling Market Trends: 

The market is primarily driven by the rising internet penetration and the usage of mobile phones, which are improving access to online gambling. Moreover, online gambling offers convenient and real-time gambling experiences for players and customizable budgets. It also provides free games, bonuses, cashless transactions, loyalty points, and global access, which, in turn, is driving the market growth. Furthermore, online gambling platforms are expanding their presence by engaging in celebrity endorsements and corporate sponsorships, which is creating a positive outlook for the market. In addition to this, the integration of artificial intelligence (AI), chatbots, and machine learning is also facilitating the market growth. Furthermore, various countries are legalizing online gambling as it creates a high rate of employment and helps in revenue generation.
