After almost two decades the online sector’s share of global gambling is around 10%-11%. A few factors have influenced this market share. First, online gambling’s rise coincided with the growth of Macau as a land-based casino market. Second, various gambling sectors in the USA e.g. lotteries have not been able to offer online activities for much of those two decades. There last few years in the US brought some hope that the situation might be changing but the new opinion on the Wire Act by the Department of Justice in 2019 throws some doubt on that.
