Income from offline gambling business is higher but online figures grow

Gaming analytics agency has prepared a report on the condition of global online and land-based bookmaking based on the previous year data.

According to the available information, both sectors are constantly growing in leading regions but sums of revenue differ significantly. Let’s review figures more detailed.

Offline gambling income:

  • Asia and Near East – $19.5 billion (55.2%);
  • Europe – $9.9 billion (27.9%);
  • North America– $2.9 billion (8.1%);
  • Australia and Oceania – $1.8 billion (5.2%);
  • Africa – $0.6 billion (1.8%);
  • South America and the Caribbean – $0.6 billion (1.8%).

Land-based betting shops and casinos generate more profit in all regions but interest rates in some of them are already almost equal. For instance, while offline betting in Africa generates 85.6% of income, the correlation in Australia and Oceania is 52.4% to 47.6%.

Online betting statistics:

  • Asia and Near East – $8.7 billion (42.4%);
  • Europe – $8.4 billion (39%);
  • North America – $1.9 billion (9%);
  • Australia and Oceania – $1.7 billion (8.1%);
  • Africa – $0.2 billion (1%);
  • South America and the Caribbean – $0.1 billion (0.5%).

The data correspond to 2016 market condition but clearly show the current situation in the world.
