Casual Gaming and Gambling on the Internet – 2nd edition

Social Gaming, Skill Gaming, Online Bingo, Online Lotteries, and Others

Online casual gaming and gambling have been around for some time but have generally kept a low profile. Now this seems about to change, and more and more eyes in the industry look at the casual sectors as new growth areas:

  • Recent heavy investments by PartyGaming, 888, Playtech, ... in the online bingo industry indicate the casual segment’s growing importance.
  • Social gaming offers, such as Zynga Poker, are currently dominating the strategic discussions in the online gambling industry.
  • Casual players are the primary revenue-generating segment in liberalised markets, as the example of Italy shows.
  • Fantasy sports and skill gaming are more and more used as strategies to enter markets with legal restrictions (e.g., U.S.).
  • Online lotteries and number games have moved into the spotlight as one of the last “untouched” sectors worth USD billions.
