iGaming Dashboard – March 2020

11 March 2020

H2 Gambling Capital and iGB are pleased to bring you the March 2020 iGaming Dashboard.

This month saw iGB’s principal data partner adjust its 2020 forecast to reflect the impact of the novel coronavirus outbreak sweeping through global markets.

With the impacts of Covid-19 being felt in the gambling markets of China, Macau, Singapore, Italy, Japan, Malaysia and South Korea, land-based gambling gross win is now projected by H2 to account for the majority of the best-case $23bn drop in revenues to c$452bn this year.

Movement restrictions are however expected to contribute to an increase in interactive’s share of global gambling gross win, with H2 upgrading this to 14.6% in this month’s update from 12.6% in February.

However, the cancellation of a major international sporting event such as June's European Football Championships would have an impact across all channels, including remote.

The graphs below show how total global gambling gross win for igaming will evolve between now and 2024, while geographical breakdowns provide an overview of revenue levels for key regions around the world.

Scan over the keys below the charts to highlight how much individual regions and product segments generate.
