U.S. Online Gambling Market size and growth rate, 2024 - 2030

In 2023, the U.S. accounted for over 16.0% of the online gambling market. With the growing adoption of high speed internet technology, the number of digital devices’ users is also rising, which is having a direct impact on the market. In addition, Smartphones support AR/VR and artificial intelligence-powered applications, which help developers create immersive and interactive gambling applications. Many developers focus on solutions that support and assist gamblers, ensure the authenticity of gambling activities, and prevent fraudulent activities.

VR in gambling also creates simulation of surroundings. Users can interact with them realistically with specific hardware. VR lets gamblers interact with other gamblers and dealers and offers a more realistic gambling experience, better sound quality, and a realistic game design. Various online gambling platforms offer a free-play version of their games to attract new users. In-app or website advertisements are used to generate revenue in the free-to-play versions.

Another major factor driving the market is the adoption of blockchain technology. Many gambling applications and websites accept payments via blockchain. For instance, BitStarz, a gambling platform with approximately 4 million regular players, accepts Bitcoin. Gambling through cryptocurrency offers vast opportunities as they are fast transactions. With fewer regulations and restrictions for cryptocurrency transactions, they are now widely used by users in online gambling.

Market Concentration & Characteristics

The market is characterized by a high degree of innovation. Companies have introduced virtual reality (VR) to provide their customers with an enhanced gaming experience. Several gaming apps designed particularly for VR headsets have been launched.

Impact of regulations is also high on the market. The Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of the U.S. does not specifically make online gambling illegal. However, it made it illegal for banks and financial institutions to initiate transactions between gambling sites and U.S. residents. Moreover, many companies are focusing on expanding their online gambling business in the U.S. market when the Supreme Court lifted the ban on sports betting in 2018.

End-use concentration is also high in the market. Online gambling users are increasingly shifting from desktop computers to tablets and smartphones. The growing prominence of social media sites as a platform for accessing online gambling games is attracting more users to these games.
