Betting On Regulation – 6th Global Gambling Report
GBGC is pleased to announce that its 6th edition of its Global Gambling Report – Betting on Regulation is available for purchase now.
The title Betting on Regulation was chosen to reflect the quickening pace of regulation that GBGC believes will continue in the coming years.

In times of trouble and when money is tight it is amazing how quickly principles and objections are put to one side when the opportunity to raise some much needed funds comes along. Dire economic times enable governments to sidestep moral objections and start taxing gambling. Such has been the economic crisis over the last few years that governments have been desperate to raise funds from any source possible. It is usually such an economic environment which facilitates further regulation of the gambling industry.
The report finds that the global gambling market’ revenues rose by 5% in 2010, recovering from a 3% fall in the previous year.
The global market was worth US$ 389.5 billion in 2010, as measured by gross gaming yield (GGY). 

It has been a hectic 12 months in the world’ gambling markets since the last edition of the report was published:
