Analyst Opinion

The Online Casinos market in Hungary has been experiencing significant growth in recent years, driven by changing customer preferences and favorable local circumstances.

Customer preferences:
Hungarian customers are increasingly turning to online casinos for their gambling needs due to several reasons. Firstly, online casinos offer convenience and accessibility, allowing customers to play their favorite games from the comfort of their own homes. This is especially appealing to those who live in rural areas or have limited access to land-based casinos. Secondly, online casinos provide a wide variety of games, including popular options such as slots, poker, and blackjack. This allows customers to find their preferred games and enjoy a personalized gambling experience. Lastly, online casinos often offer attractive bonuses and promotions, which can incentivize customers to join and continue playing.

Trends in the market:
One of the key trends in the Hungarian online casino market is the increasing adoption of mobile gambling. With the widespread use of smartphones and tablets, customers are now able to access online casinos on the go. This has led to a surge in mobile gambling apps and optimized websites, providing a seamless and immersive experience for players. Additionally, the popularity of live dealer games has been on the rise. These games allow customers to interact with real dealers and other players, creating a more authentic and social gambling experience.

Local special circumstances:
The Hungarian online casino market is also influenced by local regulations and circumstances. The government has implemented a licensing system for online casinos, ensuring that only reputable and trustworthy operators are allowed to operate in the country. This has helped to build customer trust and confidence in the online gambling industry. Furthermore, Hungary has a strong gambling culture, with a long history of land-based casinos and a passion for games of chance. This cultural background has contributed to the growth of the online casino market, as customers are already familiar with and interested in gambling activities.

Underlying macroeconomic factors:
The development of the online casino market in Hungary is also supported by underlying macroeconomic factors. The country has seen steady economic growth in recent years, leading to an increase in disposable income and consumer spending. This has provided individuals with more financial resources to allocate towards leisure activities, including online gambling. Additionally, Hungary has a relatively high internet penetration rate, with a large portion of the population having access to the internet. This widespread connectivity has facilitated the growth of online casinos, as customers are able to easily access and engage with these platforms. Overall, the Online Casinos market in Hungary is thriving due to changing customer preferences, favorable local circumstances, and underlying macroeconomic factors. As online casinos continue to evolve and innovate, the market is expected to further expand in the coming years.


Data coverage:

The data encompasses B2C enterprises. Figures are based on Gross Gambling Revenue (GGR) and represent what consumers pay for these products and services.

Modeling approach:

Market size is determined through a Top-Down approach. We use annual financial reports of the market-leading companies and industry associations, third-party studies and reports, survey results from our primary research (e.g., the Statista Consumer Insights Global survey), as well as performance factors (e.g., user penetration, price per product, usage) to analyze the markets. To estimate the market size for each country individually, we use relevant key market indicators and data from country-specific industry associations, such as GDP, number of internet users, and internet consumption.


We apply a variety of forecasting techniques, depending on the behavior of the relevant market. For instance, the S-curve function and exponential trend smoothing are well suited for forecasting digital products and services due to the non-linear growth of technology adoption. The main drivers are GDP per capita, consumer spending per capita, and 4G coverage.

Additional notes:

The data is modeled using current exchange rates. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine war are considered at a country-specific level. The market is updated twice a year. In some cases, the data is updated on an ad hoc basis (e.g., when new, relevant data has been released or significant changes within the market have an impact on the projected development). Data from the Statista Consumer Insights Global survey is reweighted for representativeness.
