COVID Impact and Recovery Analysis

The outbreak of COVID-19 had a strong influence on the online gambling market in North America. Due to the outbreak in 2020, traditional casinos and gambling places such as taverns, breweries, horse racing, bingo halls, and lottery stores were closed, to prevent the spread of the virus. As a result, the vendors were compelled to conduct businesses through online platforms. Therefore, the online gambling market in this region experienced a rise in growth due to the adoption of online platforms during this period.

Online Gambling Market: Key Driver

  • One of the key factors driving growth in the online gambling market is the increasing penetration of smartphones. Smartphone penetration is increasing because of the declining average selling price (ASP) of smartphones and the developments in communication network infrastructure.

  • Smartphones provide a convenient and intuitive interface for playing casino games and e-sports. Smartphone users engage extensively with their mobile devices on an intermittent basis, for short to long periods of time.

  • This can be substantiated from the fact that the number of hours spent by smartphone users globally increased from approximately 2 hours to 3 hours and 30 mins during 2014-2018. Thus, users are rapidly shifting from desktop to mobile devices for playing casino games.
