Gambling: revenue in the U.S. by region 2018

Gambling is legal in the U.S. under federal law. However, there are different regulations and restrictions put in place by each state. Nevada and Louisiana allow casino-style gambling statewide but when it comes to online gambling, New Jersey is largest U.S. market having legalized online gaming in 2013. The region with the largest gaming revenue in the U.S. in 2018 was the Northwest Region, accounting for 12.28 billion U.S. dollars. Unsurprisingly the state of Nevada alone came in close second with a revenue of 11.92 billion U.S. dollars.

Supplementary notes

Gaming revenue is intended to be an all-encompassing term for the various definitions of gaming proceeds as defined by the individual regulatory authorities (e.g. AGR, AGP and Net Win) and should not be interpreted to equal the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants definition of revenue.
Commercial gaming encompasses traditional brick-and-mortar casinos, racinos and slot parlors regulated by state gaming boards or state lotteries. Within this segment, the revenues reported include amounts generated from gaming machines, table games, poker and sport books. The source has excluded revenues from pari-mutual racing activities.
