Each month, Eilers & Krejcik Gaming releases its US-focused Online Game Performance Report alongside Fantini Research.

Gathering data directly from online operators across nearly 30 sites, the report provides an in-depth recap of US online casino and iGaming performance.

Below are some of the latest standout market figures, through to September 2022, presented in partnership with iGaming NEXT.

Top US iGaming suppliers by GGR

The dominance of the two leading suppliers in the US market – Evolution and IGT – continued to slip through September, with market leader Evolution’s share of overall GGR down from 28.2% to 27.1%.

The live casino specialist’s share of slot GGR was reduced from 20.3% to 18.5%, while its hold on the table games segment increased from 36.2% to 38.8%.

IGT, meanwhile, saw its overall share of GGR fall by a full percentage point from 21.8% to 20.8%. While the supplier remained the number one provider of table games, its proportion of GGR from the segment tumbled from 46.9% to 43.1%, while its share of slots GGR fell from 19.4% to 18.1%.

Those losses were explained in part by Light & Wonder’s continuing growth, as the supplier formerly known as Scientific Games increased its share of overall GGR from 18.1% to 18.3%.

This was likely due to L&W’s improved performance in the slots category, where its share of GGR grew from 21.3% to 21.7%. The supplier therefore continued as the top-performing slots supplier included in the report.

Between the top three suppliers combined, overall share of GGR fell from 68.1% to 66.2%, suggesting online casino customers are continuing to diversify the suppliers whose games they are playing.

Significant movers among the suppliers listed in the report include Digital Gaming Corporation in fifth place, which grew its share of GGR from 5.3% to 6.6%, and Gaming Realms, which saw its proportion of overall GGR increase from 2.8% to 3.6%, moving up from seventh place to sixth as a result.

September was also a good month for Greentube, which remained in ninth place overall but increased its market share from 2.2% to 2.5%.

Additionally, Ainsworth almost doubled its share of overall GGR from 0.6% to 1%, moving up the list from 16th place to 13th as a result.

Top performing games by GGR

Just as the dominance of the top three suppliers in the market continued to wane in September, so too did the lead of the top performing individual games.

The highest grossing game included in the report – IGT’s Blackjack – saw its share of GGR tumble from 2.9% to 2.19%, while Evolution’s Live Dealer Roulette rocketed from fifth position at 1.67% to second, with 2.15% of overall GGR.

The live casino specialist’s own version of Blackjack, however, fell from second position with 2.15% of GGR to fifth, with just 1.5%.

Light & Wonder’s 88 Fortunes slot remained in third position, though its share of GGR slipped from 2.07% to 1.99%.

The total proportion of GGR generated by the 25 best performing games fell from 27.56% to 25.63%, again suggesting that players continue to spread their spend across an increasingly broad variety of games.

The top three performing titles in the report – which together accounted for 7.12% of GGR in August – now account for a significantly smaller proportion at 6.33%.

This month, Evolution increased its number of titles in the top 25 from 10 to 12, while IGT and Light & Wonder performed consistently with the previous month, holding six and four of the top positions, respectively.

Everi, which had two games in the top 25 last month, had just one this time round, while AGS  retained its single game on the leaderboard; slot title Capital Gains.

GGR breakdown by game category

While slots continued to account for the largest proportion of GGR of any single segment, at 76.6%, that represented a reduction of 1.2 percentage points from 77.8% in the prior month.

That decline – as well as a fall for table games revenue as a proportion of overall GGR from 11.5% to 11.2% – is explained principally by an increase in the popularity of live casino, whose share of overall GGR grew from 7.9% to 8.8%.

Video poker also saw a modest increase from 2.1% to 2.2%, while the proportion of GGR attributable to instant win games almost doubled from 0.5% to 0.9%.

Of all the game titles included in the report, the proportion of slots fell slightly from 90.5% to 90.1% while the report now includes a larger proportion of table games and live casino titles, which increased as a proportion of all games from 4.7% to 4.9% and from 1.9% to 2%, respectively.

Proportion of the market included in the report

Eilers & Krejcik includes a vast quantity of data in its reports, covering some 58.5% of the US iGaming market and now tracking more than 36,000 separate game titles every month across 29 online casino sites.

The growth in the number of games tracked by the firm, as well as the number of online casinos available to US consumers – from just a handful in recent years to more than 40 today – demonstrate the growth of regulated online casino products across the US.

With legalised iGaming available in just a few states, however, the data included in this report shows the beginning of the vertical’s growth trajectory, which will be further driven by the introduction of new legislation and regulation across additional US states in the months and years to come.

Below are some of the latest standout market figures, through to August 2022, presented in partnership with iGaming NEXT.

Top US iGaming suppliers by GGR

The top three online casino suppliers in the market (Evolution, IGT and Light & Wonder) secured their respective positions in August, as Light & Wonder continued to close the gap on its competitors, as its proportion of overall GGR increased from 17.6% to 18.1%.

L&W also managed to overtake industry behemoth Evolution as the top slots supplier in the market, accounting for 21.3% of all slots GGR, compared to Evolution’s 20.3% (down from 21.2% in the previous report).

IGT’s share of overall GGR slipped from 23.4% to 21.8%, while Evolution held strong at number one with 28.2% of market share.

The biggest changes, however, happened among companies lower down the top 20 suppliers list. 

Novomatic subsidiary Greentube, for example, was able to double its market share from 1.1% to 2.2%, moving up from 11th position to 9th in the list of top suppliers. That move follows on from the brand almost doubling its share in the previous month, from 0.6% in the report covering the period until June to 1.1% in the report up to July.

Gaming Realms also made significant gains, increasing its proportion of overall GGR from 2.3% to 2.8%, and moving up from 8th place to 7th as a result.

In 4th, 5th and 6th position, Everi, Digital Gaming Corporation and High 5 Games all conceded market share during the latest reporting period, losing 0.3%, 0.6% and 0.3%, respectively.

Top performing games by GGR

Evolution’s blackjack closed the gap behind IGT’s version of the ever-popular table game, which has long held the top spot on the list of the best performing individual games by GGR.

While IGT’s version secured first position, its proportion of overall GGR slipped from 3.83% to 2.9%, while Evolution’s edition shot up from 4th position with 1.6% of GGR to 2nd, with 2.15%.

Evolution’s live dealer roulette also increased its market share from 1.63% to 1.67%, however it slipped from 3rd to 5th position as Light & Wonder’s 88 Fortunes and IGT’s Fortune Coin slots took 3rd and 4th place, respectively.

88 Fortunes’ market share slipped from 2.15% to 2.07%, however, while Fortune Coin saw significant growth from 1.21% to 1.77%.

Of the top 25, 10 titles came from Evolution (down from 12), IGT maintained six of the top 25, consistent with last month, and Light & Wonder retained four, while Everi saw a second game enter the leaderboard compared to just one last month. 

Reel Play, AGS and High 5 Games each had one title appear in the top 25.

The dominance of the top three highest grossing titles continued to slip, accounting for a combined 7.12% of GGR compared to 7.61% in July, suggesting that players are diversifying their options and spreading their spend across a greater number of titles.

Still, the top 25 games together generated 27.56% of all iGaming GGR, meaning more than $1 in every $4 spent went on one of these titles, out of the total 35,432 games included in the report.

GGR breakdown by game category

Slots continued to dominate the US iGaming market in August, as the proportion of GGR attributable to the vertical increased from 77.6% to 77.8%.

The proportion of GGR attributable to table games slipped from 12.6% to 11.5%, while live casino was able to increase its dominance in the market, up from 7.2% to 7.9%.

Video poker and instant win games increased their market share slightly, from 2.0% to 2.1% and from 0.4% to 0.5%, respectively.

The figures suggest that live casino stole some market share from other verticals during August, though its proportion of the overall market is still below the 8.0% recorded in June.

New slot releases also helped increase the total amount of available slot games as a proportion of the whole market from 90.4% to 90.5%, seemingly at the expense of table games, whose proportion fell from 4.9% to 4.5%.

Live casino titles continued to represent 1.9% of all available games, while video poker, instant win, bingo/keno and virtual sports games also remained consistent with July.

The proportion of lottery games available increased modestly, from 0.2% to 0.3%.

Proportion of the market included in the report

Eilers & Krejcik includes a vast quantity of data in its reports, covering some 58.5% of the US iGaming market and now tracking more than 35,000 separate game titles every month across 29 online casino sites.

The growth in the number of games tracked by the firm, as well as the number of online casinos available to US consumers – from just a handful in recent years to more than 40 today – demonstrate the growth of regulated online casino products across the US.

Below are some of the latest standout market figures, through to July 2022, presented in partnership with iGaming NEXT.

Top US iGaming suppliers by GGR

Consistent with last month’s report covering data up to June 2022, Evolution, IGT and Light & Wonder continued to dominate the US supplier landscape, collectively accounting for 69.2% of GGR included in the report.

Evolution and IGT’s proportion of total GGR reduced slightly month-over-month, as Light & Wonder increased its share from 17.0% to 17.6%. Meanwhile Everi, which came in fourth place behind the top three, increased its share of total GGR from 6.6% to 7.8%.

Evolution retained its spot at the top of the list, however, with 28.2% of overall GGR (down from 29.3%) and, despite its strong focus on live casino, remained the largest supplier of slots in the report, accounting for 21.2% of all slots revenue (also down slightly from 22.2%). Meanwhile, its share of table game GGR increased from 30.6% to 31.8%.

Other significant moves from June to July include Greentube nearly doubling its share of GGR from 0.6% to 1.1%, while Inspired’s share slipped from 2.4% to 1.8%.

Top performing games by GGR

Looking at the GGR breakdown by individual games, IGT’s Blackjack continued to dominate the market with 3.83% of the total GGR, up from 3.65%. 

That means the single game accounts for almost $1 in every $25 spent on online casino in the US, a mammoth proportion considering the report covers tens of thousands of individual games.

Evolution’s Live Dealer roulette – which was the second best performing game in the market in June, slipped from second to third position as its proportion of GGR reduced from 2.52% to 1.63%.

It was overtaken in second place by Light & Wonder’s 88 Fortunes, which increased its share of GGR from 1.95% to 2.15%.

Together, the top three games brought in 7.61%, down from 8.12%, suggesting the dominance of the best-performing individual titles may be starting to slip.

Of the top 25, 12 games are supplied by Evolution (up from 11), while six IGT titles made the leaderboard (down from seven). Light & Wonder had a fourth game enter the leaderboard in July after three made the top 25 in June, while Reel Play, Everi and AGS had one each.

High 5 Games’ Triple Double Da Vinci Diamonds slot – which was the tenth best performing game in June with 1.08% of GGR – slipped out of the top 25 altogether, meaning its market share was less than 0.53%.

GGR breakdown by game category

In July, the proportion of GGR attributed to the slots vertical grew from 77.3% to 77.6%, while the proportion from table games grew from 12.0% to 12.6%. 

Growth in those verticals came at the expense of live casino, whose proportion of revenue dipped from 8.0% to 7.2%, and video poker, which fell from 2.1% to 2.0%.

The proportion of GGR from each vertical is closely shadowed by the number of games available in each category.

Slots made up 90.4% of all available games, while table games and live casino games accounted for 4.9% and 1.9%, respectively. 

Video poker and instant win games made up 1.6% and 0.7% of the market, while lottery and bingo/keno games made up 0.2% of the available games each. Virtual sports games made up just 0.1% of all available games.

Regarding the proportion of live casino games and GGR within the market, it is important to recognise that Evolution is the only live casino supplier included in the report, while figures from Playtech and Light & Wonder subsidiary Authentic Gaming are not included.

Proportion of the market included in the report

Eilers & Krejcik includes a vast quantity of data in its reports, covering some 58.5% of the US iGaming market and tracking more than 34,000 separate game titles every month across 29 online casino sites.

The growth in the number of games tracked by the firm, as well as the number of online casinos available to US consumers – from just a handful in 2021 to almost 30 today – demonstrate the growth of regulated online casino products across the US.

With legalised iGaming available in just six states, however, the data included in this report shows the beginning of the vertical’s growth trajectory, which will be further driven by the introduction of new legislation and regulation across additional US states in the months and years to come.

Below are some of the latest standout market figures, through to June 2022, presented in partnership with iGaming NEXT.

Top US iGaming suppliers by GGR

Looking at iGaming suppliers by revenue, it becomes clear that the market is dominated by a small number of well established businesses. The top three ranked suppliers – Evolution, IGT and Light & Wonder – accounted for 70% of overall iGaming GGR between them.

Live casino giant Evolution led the charge here, generating 29.3% of total GGR among suppliers included in the report. In addition to being the largest supplier overall by GGR, Evolution accounted for 100% of all live casino GGR analysed by Eilers & Krejcik, but was the only live supplier in the data set. 

Despite its core focus on live casino, with the vertical making up 79% of Evolution’s Q1 2022 revenue, the Stockholm-listed company was also the largest slots supplier in the report, accounting for 22.2% of all US online slot revenue. It also brought in 30.6% of overall online table game revenue.

Meanwhile, IGT was the second largest supplier, generating 23.7% of total GGR, while marking itself out as the clear leader in the table games space, where it accounted for 53.8% of GGR. In slots, IGT sat just behind Evolution, at 20.6%.

Light & Wonder (formerly Scientific Games) failed to dominate any particular game category, but its 20% share of the slots market helped the firm secure 17% of total supplier GGR.

The two next largest suppliers in the market – Everi and Digital Gaming Corporation – brought in 6.6% and 5.5% of total GGR respectively, meaning the top five market suppliers (of the 21 businesses included in the report) generated 82.1% of the market’s total GGR.

Top performing games by GGR

The breakdown of top individual game titles by GGR also shows how the market skews towards the most popular products. Here, the top five games analysed – out of tens of thousands – generated more than 11.5% of overall iGaming GGR.

IGT’s Blackjack was the highest grossing game included in the report, accounting for 3.7% of total market GGR alone.

Evolution’s Live Dealer Roulette took second spot, accounting for 2.5% of overall GGR, while Light & Wonder’s popular 88 Fortunes slot took third position, generating 2% of the total.

Of the top 25 games included in the report, 11 were developed by Evolution. IGT were responsible for seven, while three were created by Light & Wonder. Reel Play, Everi, High 5 Games and AGS each had a single game appear in the top 25.

The overwhelming majority of top performing games (19) were slots, while four were live casino games and two were table games.

GGR breakdown by game category

Perhaps unsurprisingly, online slots emerged as the dominant vertical in US iGaming by an overwhelming margin, accounting for more than three quarters (77.3%) of all reported GGR.

This is reflected in the number of slot games available on the market – which according to the report make up 90.3% of all available titles across the iGaming vertical. Six US states currently offer iGaming in some capacity. 

Higher average bets on table games and live casino, however, meant those categories accounted for a larger proportion of GGR when compared to the number of games available in each category. 

Table games, which make up just 4.8% of available iGaming titles, accounted for 12% of GGR, while the live casino category, which accounts for just 1.9% of games, brought in 8% of GGR.

It is important to recognise here, however, that Evolution is the only live casino supplier included in the report, while figures from Playtech and Light & Wonder subsidiary Authentic Gaming are not included.

Proportion of the market included in the report

Eilers & Krejcik includes a vast quantity of data in its reports, covering some 58.5% of the US iGaming market and tracking close to 33,000 separate game titles every month across 29 online casino sites.

The growth in the number of games tracked by the firm, as well as the number of online casinos available to US consumers – from just a handful in 2021 to almost 30 today – demonstrate the growth of regulated online casino products across the US.

With legalised iGaming available in just six states, however, the data included in this report shows the beginning of the vertical’s growth trajectory, which will be further driven by the introduction of new legislation and regulation across additional US states in the months and years to come.
