According to the Eilers & Krejcik Gaming report, revenues of the online gambling sector in Europe increased by 6.6% to $ 19.3 billion in 2016. Improving the financial performance of the industry is due to the introduction of legislative regulation of online gambling in many European countries.
According to Eilers & Krejcik Gaming, the largest operator in Europe is still the British company Bet365, which owns 8% of the market share.
Analysts are sure that in Europe there will be two or three major gambling operators that will work in each regulated market of the continent in the next few years. Today only Amay is this operator.
At the same time, despite the successful development of the online gambling industry in Europe in general, the tightening of the gambling laws of the Czech Republic, Poland and Portugal forces the operators to leave the markets of these countries.
