Analyst Opinion

The Online Gambling market in United States has experienced significant growth in recent years, driven by changing customer preferences and favorable market conditions.

Customer preferences:
Customers in the United States have shown a growing interest in online gambling due to its convenience and accessibility. The rise of smartphones and high-speed internet has made it easier for people to access online gambling platforms anytime and anywhere. Additionally, the younger generation, who are more tech-savvy, has shown a greater inclination towards online gambling compared to traditional brick-and-mortar casinos. The ability to play a wide variety of games, including poker, slots, and sports betting, from the comfort of their own homes has attracted many customers to the online gambling market.

Trends in the market:
One of the key trends in the online gambling market in the United States is the legalization and regulation of online gambling in several states. This has opened up new opportunities for both domestic and international operators to enter the market and offer their services legally. The legalization of online gambling has also led to increased competition among operators, resulting in a wider range of games and better customer experience. Additionally, the introduction of live dealer games, where players can interact with real dealers through video streaming, has gained popularity among customers, providing a more immersive and realistic gambling experience. Another trend in the market is the increasing use of cryptocurrencies for online gambling transactions. Cryptocurrencies offer a secure and anonymous way for customers to make deposits and withdrawals, eliminating the need for traditional banking methods. This trend has been driven by the growing acceptance of cryptocurrencies in mainstream society and the desire for faster and more secure financial transactions.

Local special circumstances:
The United States has a complex regulatory landscape when it comes to online gambling. While some states have legalized and regulated online gambling, others have strict laws prohibiting it. This patchwork of regulations creates challenges for operators looking to enter the market and limits the availability of online gambling services to customers in certain states. However, with the increasing legalization of online gambling at the state level, this situation is gradually changing, and more states are expected to follow suit in the coming years.

Underlying macroeconomic factors:
The growth of the online gambling market in the United States is also influenced by underlying macroeconomic factors. A strong economy and high disposable income levels have contributed to increased consumer spending on leisure activities, including online gambling. Additionally, the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting lockdowns and social distancing measures have further accelerated the shift towards online gambling as people seek entertainment options from the safety of their homes. These factors have created a favorable market environment for the growth of the online gambling industry in the United States. In conclusion, the Online Gambling market in United States is experiencing significant growth due to changing customer preferences, the legalization and regulation of online gambling in several states, the increasing use of cryptocurrencies, and underlying macroeconomic factors. While there are still regulatory challenges and variations across states, the overall trend is towards a more open and accessible online gambling market in the United States.


Data coverage:

The data encompasses B2C enterprises. Figures are based on Gross Gambling Revenue (GGR) and represent what consumers pay for these products and services.

Modeling approach:

Market size is determined through a Top-Down approach. We use annual financial reports of the market-leading companies and industry associations, third-party studies and reports, survey results from our primary research (e.g., the Statista Consumer Insights Global survey), as well as performance factors (e.g., user penetration, price per product, usage) to analyze the markets. To estimate the market size for each country individually, we use relevant key market indicators and data from country-specific industry associations, such as GDP, number of internet users, and internet consumption.


We apply a variety of forecasting techniques, depending on the behavior of the relevant market. For instance, the S-curve function and exponential trend smoothing are well suited for forecasting digital products and services due to the non-linear growth of technology adoption. The main drivers are GDP per capita, consumer spending per capita, and 4G coverage.

Additional notes:

The data is modeled using current exchange rates. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine war are considered at a country-specific level. The market is updated twice a year. In some cases, the data is updated on an ad hoc basis (e.g., when new, relevant data has been released or significant changes within the market have an impact on the projected development). Data from the Statista Consumer Insights Global survey is reweighted for representativeness.
