For the last few months we at Gx have been involved in investigating the market for online gambling across Europe. It is an exciting market and there is a very large pot of gold for payment providers to find. Our estimate is that approximately €69 billion will be gambled online across 15 countries in 2013. If you think this figure is large consider for a moment that the Italian market for land based gambling is worth approximately €90 billion according to AAMS, the Italian Gambling regulator.
Prior to the release of the report, we will be presenting some of the key findings at our Analyst Briefing on Tuesday 21st May between 8am and 10am at the offices of Locke Lord in Bishopsgate.
Some of the key content that will be covered in this briefing will be:
- Which markets represent the largest revenue and GGR opportunities for online and mobile gambling?
- How are regulations impacting on the online gambling ecosystem?
- What are the consumer’s concerns about gambling online versus in physical betting shops and what are their attitudes to mobile gambling?
The presentation will be followed by a panel session to discuss the implications of the research to the industry and to discuss other some of the key trends in Europe, critical success factors to driving growth in the market and the implications of regulatons to the industry.
