Key Market Trends

Various Sponsorships and Convenient Payment Options Driving the Market

The rising adoption of mobile and online payment gateways made payment options convenient for consumers and online players. Online payment provides a safe and secured mode of transaction, which is accepted by the online gaming industry. This factor is boosting the growth of the online gambling market. The online betting segment is predominantly rising with the online sports category, especially in football events, such as the FIFA World Cup and the European championships. Many online sports betting companies are sponsoring different teams as a part of their marketing initiatives by acquiring or merging with several companies for strategic expansions. In August 2021, DraftKings Inc. and Golden Nugget Online Gaming Inc. entered a definitive agreement for DraftKings and acquired Golden Nugget Online Gaming in an all-stock transaction. The acquisition enabled DraftKings to leverage Golden Nugget’s well-known brand’s (iGaming) product experience and the existing database of more than 5 million customers.

North America Remains the Fastest-growing Region

The current legislative framework for online betting in the United States allows only bookmakers licensed in Nevada, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey to operate legally, as these are the three states where online betting is regulated. Pennsylvania is the fourth and biggest state to legalize and regulate online gambling. There are various types of online casinos, sportsbooks, and online sports betting apps live in New Jersey. New Jersey’s Division of Gaming Enforcement oversees and regulates New Jersey’s online gaming sites. It handles licensing for the sites, tax revenue collection, and game testing and approval. New Jersey is currently the largest market for regulated online gambling in the United States. Canada is largely an unregulated country in terms of online gaming. At the same time, Mexico is reviewing its gambling laws intending to regulate the online gambling sector to align with the rest of the nation’s gambling industry. Therefore, the increasing regularization of online gambling in the North American countries and their respective states is expected to drive the market further.
