Analyst Opinion

The Online Lottery market in South America has experienced significant growth in recent years, driven by changing customer preferences and the increasing availability of online gambling platforms. Customer preferences in South America have shifted towards online lottery platforms due to their convenience and accessibility. With the rise of smartphones and internet penetration, more people in the region have access to online gambling platforms, making it easier for them to participate in lottery games. Additionally, online platforms often offer a wider variety of lottery games, giving customers more options to choose from. One of the key trends in the South American online lottery market is the increasing popularity of mobile gambling. As smartphone adoption continues to rise in the region, more people are using their mobile devices to access online lottery platforms. This trend has been further accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic, as people have turned to online gambling as a form of entertainment while staying at home. Another trend in the market is the emergence of new online lottery operators in South America. As the market continues to grow, both local and international companies are entering the market to capitalize on the increasing demand. This has led to increased competition and innovation in the industry, with operators offering new features and promotions to attract customers. Local special circumstances in South America also play a role in the development of the online lottery market. In some countries, such as Brazil and Argentina, traditional land-based lottery operators have faced regulatory challenges, which have opened up opportunities for online operators. Additionally, the high level of smartphone penetration in the region has made it easier for online lottery platforms to reach a wider audience. Underlying macroeconomic factors, such as the growth of the middle class and increasing disposable income, have also contributed to the development of the online lottery market in South America. As more people in the region have the financial means to participate in gambling activities, the demand for online lottery platforms has increased. In conclusion, the Online Lottery market in South America is experiencing growth due to changing customer preferences, the increasing availability of online platforms, and the underlying macroeconomic factors in the region. The popularity of mobile gambling, the emergence of new operators, and local special circumstances have all contributed to the development of the market. As the region continues to embrace online gambling, the online lottery 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.
