Casino industry - Statistics & Facts

Casinos are establishments where people can participate in various forms of gambling, and the casino industry generates high revenues from these activities. Global casinos had a projected gross gaming yield of around 115 billion U.S. dollars in 2016, and this figure was forecasted to reach 130 billion U.S. dollars in 2019. Social casino gamers are also on the rise. It was estimated that the global social casino market would grow to 3.2 billion U.S. dollars in 2018, up from 3.18 billion the previous year.

Macau, a special administrative region of China, is the largest casino market in the world, overtaking the previous leader, Las Vegas, in 2006. Gambling contributes an increasingly significant amount to the economy in Macau, with gross gambling revenue rising from 10.5 billion U.S. dollars in 2007 to more than 32 billion U.S. dollars in 2017.
