Online Outline

Online gaming is in its infancy in the U.S. Legal in just five states—New Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Connecticut and Michigan—its success has several other jurisdictions interested. The Eilers-Fantini Online Gaming Performance Report released in February evaluates the performance of online games from a variety of suppliers as reported by the operators in those five states. The report only tracks reported games and the authors warn that it is not necessarily a snapshot of the entire market. When viewed by theoretical win by supplier, Evolution leads, generating an estimated 25.4 percent, followed by IGT at 17.8 percent and SG (now Light & Wonder) at 13.7 percent. Entain follows closely behind at 13 percent while Everi rounds out the top 5 at 7.4 percent. Looking at the number of total games tracked, Evolution also leads the segment at 22.9 percent, followed by SG at 20.1 percent and IGT at 13.5 percent. At least 25 unique suppliers are tracked in the data that make the report minimums.
