Climbing Back Up

In its first report since casinos began reopening in June, the Eilers-Fantini Central Game Performance Database (GPD) resumed its coverage of slots in the gaming industry. The chart below shows the market share of the slot suppliers. Since few casinos are planning to invest capital in slot machines this year, this chart will probably not change much until 2021. The second chart shows the percentage of owned slots versus leased and wide-area progressives. The question now is whether casinos will look to lease more slots than own, given a possible reluctance to invest capital in gaming devices. The GPD includes slots from Canada (13 percent), tribal gaming (34 percent) and U.S. commercial casinos (53 percent).
