Key Market Trends
Online Betting Holds a Prominent Share among the Online Gambling
The online betting segment is predominantly applied in the sports category, especially in events, such as FIFA World Cup and European Championships. Online betting is also popular in horse racing and greyhound racing. Many of the online sports betting companies are sponsoring different teams as a part of their marketing initiatives and strategic expansions. For instance, the bwin brand, a pioneering online sports brand across Continental Europe, attained global recognition through high-profile sponsorships with football clubs, such as Real Madrid and AC Milan. Similarly, for the 2018 World Cup, the Gaming Innovation Group (GiG) launched an advanced and innovative platform for sports betting, thereby driving the market.
North America Remains the Fastest Growing Region
The current legislation 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. The new law allows for online casinos, online poker, sports betting, and more. New Jersey is currently the largest market for regulated online gambling in the United States. There are a number of sports books and online sports betting apps live in the state. Canada is largely an unregulated country in terms of online gaming. Whereas, Mexico is reviewing its gambling laws, with the aim to regulate the online gambling sector to bring it in line with the rest of the nationŐs gambling industry.
Market leaders have been focusing on mergers since the past few years, primarily to increase their market share and to improve margins. For instance, Paddy power Plc and Bet fair Plc merged into Paddy Power Betfair Plc. Similarly, Ladbrokes and Coral merged and formed Ladbrokes Coral Group Plc. Many online gambling companies rely on third party providers, such as Playtech, for software. However, some companies choose to backward integrate. 888poker heavily invested in developing its own software and online gaming technology, primarily not to rely on suppliers. The key players in the online gambling market are providing similar or almost identical services and products, leading to a fierce competition with a heavy focus on pricing and marketing activities.
