A new report from PlayUSA takes a look at the future of the US gambling industry and identifies seven products with a lot of upside. No surprises that many of these forms of gaming are done primarily online and have not been fully exploited in the US yet.
The report takes a detailed look at each segment and reveals where various stakeholders — from governments to the casino industry — stand on the issues.
The seven areas to watch for growth or change in the American market, per the report are:
- Online gambling
- Online lottery
- Daily fantasy sports
- Social casino
- Online skill gambling
- Online horse betting
- Sports betting
Not all of these are equal – online gambling, online lottery and sports betting in particular offer far higher potential ceilings.
The report notes that you can already do at least one of the above activities in 44 states.
There are 26 states that are actively looking at legalising and regulating at least one of the listed activities.
Daily fantasy sports has had the most success in gaining legal clarity — 11 states have legalised it in the past five years. However, the industry already existed without that legal clarity in the vast majority of states.
