Online Gambling Grows in the US as Land-Based Casinos Remain Closed

The coronavirus pandemic has created chaos and major change across the United States. People are staying inside their homes due to stay at home orders. For over two months, non-essential businesses have been closed, including casinos. Online gambling is booming in states with legalized online gambling.

Delaware, New Jersey and Pennsylvania recorded record revenues for online gambling in April. The state with the smallest market generated $28.5 million via player handle. Pennsylvania saw players spend $1.4 billion. Online gambling is growing in the US as land-based casinos are closed. It is estimated that in 2020, the number of players in online casinos will reach 1 billion in total.

There is an increase in the number of players in online casinos in states affected by the coronavirus pandemic. Sports betting is also increasing as the traditional betting options are limited. In Delaware, the month of April recorded just over 1,400 new players. The casinos are starting to reopen slowly. For now, we can expect the big numbers to continue to come in as players choose to gamble where they are free from the potential to catch the virus.
