The growing consumer inclination toward betting apps and the introduction of the freemium model in online gambling are the major factors expected to drive market growth in the upcoming years.

Electronic Gambling Devices (EGDs), equipped with in-built software mimicking the local casino experience, are creating lucrative opportunities for the market. For instance, the Video Lottery Terminals (VLT) are powered by advanced technologies. They can be customized to electronic poker games, video slot machines, spinning reel slot machines, and electronic slot machines.

The COVID-19 pandemic played a crucial role in expediting the online gambling demand as people spent most of their time indoors and opted for online games for their leisure. Besides, the availability of secure options for digital payment is also stimulating the adoption of online gambling apps. The market growth will be further accelerated by the increased adoption of digital currency and websites provided by betting and gambling companies.
