Casino City's iGaming Pocket Directory - 2018 Edition

16 Sponsored by Casino City’s iGaming Pocket Directory Casino The online casino market is forecasted to reach €3.9 billion in the EU by 2018 with a compound annual growth rate of 6.0%, according to an estimate from H2 Gambling Capital. Despite an absence of federal regulation, the U.S. market will reach €2.2 billion that same year, implying a compound annual growth rate of 32.2% as more states are expected to regulate the industry in the coming years. Nevada, New Jersey, Delaware and most recently Pennsylvania have regulated online gambling. The online casino vertical has one key advantage over other sectors in the online gaming market space: It can reinvent itself every few months. Yes, lottery-style “Spin & Gos” revolutionized online poker, and in-play wagers and mobile gaming have dramatically changed sports betting. But those innovations don’t come along very often. In fact, for decades, sports betting — both online and in betting shops — barely changed. By contrast, online casinos are constantly changing because they have to find new games people like to play. In a highly competitive environment — where every reputable online casino offers reliable payment processing, a variety of payment methods, quality customer service and clear bonuses — games are one of the few places where online casinos can distinguish themselves.
