Online Games, Tangible Profits

The August 2023 edition of the Online Game Performance Report produced by Eilers & Krejcik Gaming and Fantini Research, which compiled data from a total of 33 iGaming sites across the U.S., included a 10-year track record of U.S. iGaming gross gaming revenue (GGR).

According to the report, revenues have skyrocketed from $0 in 2013 all the way up to a projected $6.23 billion by the end of 2023.

Notably, the biggest one-year revenue increase came from 2019 to 2020, which saw figures jump from approximately $500 million to well over $1.6 billion the following year. This can be attributed to an increase in legal iGaming jurisdictions as well as the shutdown of land-based casinos during the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Six U.S. states—New Jersey, Delaware, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Connecticut—currently offer iGaming, and Rhode Island legalized the sector in June but has yet to actually launch. Nevada offers online poker only.
