Portugal iGaming Dashboard - Q2 2019

12 August 2019

iGaming Business and Ficom Leisure are pleased to present the Portugal iGaming Dashboard, providing revenue, product and game metrics on the dot.pt regulated market.

The data is updated quarterly following the official release of the figures by Portuguese regulator the Serviço de Regulação e Inspeção de Jogos (SRIJ).

Portugal’s online gaming market enjoyed a strong first quarter, and this has continued into Q2. Revenue for the first six months of 2019 stands at €95.6m, more than the €78.9m generated over 12 months in 2018.

This was achieved despite the lack of a major sporting event in July, which resulted in a month-on-month decline in sports betting revenue, which fell 7.3% to €23.0m.

Despite European football’s off-season, the sport remained by far the most popular, accounting for 71.4% of turnover. Tennis came a distant second, with 16.4% of amounts wagered, followed by basketball on 7.5%.

This was offset by growth in online casino, which now includes cash poker and poker tournaments. Revenue for the quarter rose to €25.2m, aided by the popularity of online slots.

Slots generated 67.0% of online gaming turnover, ahead of French roulette on 13.5%, and blackjack on 8.1%.
