Pragmatic Play is the leading supplier of iGaming titles in the Canadian market, according to the latest Online Game Performance Reports from Eilers & Krejcik Gaming (EKG).

Each month, EKG releases the reports alongside Fantini Research. Gathering data directly from operators, the reports provide an in-depth recap of US and Canadian online casino and iGaming performance.

Below are some of the latest standout market figures, through to November 2023, presented in partnership with NEXT.io.

US GGR share by supplier

Evolution held onto the top spot as the largest individual US iGaming supplier in this month’s report, despite a significant reduction in its overall share of GGR from 21.2% to 19.2%.

That drop came about as the firm’s share of slots GGR fell from 13.4% to 12.5%, and its share of table games GGR slipped from 24.3% to 23.4%.

Meanwhile the second largest supplier in the report, IGT, managed to increase its share of overall GGR from 17.2% to 17.7%.

That increase came about as IGT’s share of table games GGR rose from 42.3% to 43.2%, which appeared to offset a slight drop in its share of slots GGR from 14.3% to 14.1%.

Light & Wonder continued as the third largest US supplier in the report, as its share of overall GGR improved from 13.3% to 13.7%.

The firm grew its share of slots GGR from 15.5% to 15.8%, meaning it continued as the single largest US supplier of slot games in the report.

In fourth place, Digital Gaming Corporation continued to account for 9.6% of overall GGR, while in fifth place Everi’s share fell from 7% to 6.5%.

Anaxi slipped from sixth place to seventh as its share of GGR fell from 5.2% to 4.9%, while operators’ own internal titles moved up one spot to sixth, accounting for 5.1% of total GGR (up from 4.8%).

Elsewhere, Inspired remained in 12th place despite a significant increase in its share of total GGR, from 1.7% to 2.3%.

Gaming Realms also saw good growth in 13th place, as its share of GGR increased from 1.6% to 1.9%.

Greentube also increased its GGR share from 1.3% to 1.5%, moving up from 16th place to 15th as a result.

Top game titles by GGR

Looking at the best performing individual game titles in the US, Anaxi’s Buffalo slot held onto the top spot for the second month running, despite a drop in its share of overall GGR from 4.55% to 4.08%.

IGT’s Blackjack also held on in second place, as its share of GGR grew slightly from 3.49% to 3.54%.

Another IGT title, Cash Eruption, also held position in third place with a GGR share of 2.53%, up from 2.19%.

Digital Gaming Corporation’s Fire and Roses Joker slot, meanwhile, maintained its 1.7% share of GGR in fourth place.

Evolution’s Lightning Roulette took a serious fall this month, having appeared last month in fifth place in the rankings with 1.54% of GGR. This month, the live casino title dropped to 10th place with 0.99%.

Taking its place in fifth was Digital Gaming Corporation’s Blazing Bison Gold Blitz slot, with 1.26% of GGR. The slot game did not appear in last month’s top 25 game titles ranking.

Elsewhere, Evolution’s Blackjack moved up from eighth place to sixth, despite a modest reduction in its share of overall GGR from 1.16% to 1.12%.

Other big movers this month included Light & Wonder’s 88 Fortunes slot, whose share of GGR fell from 1.14% to 1.01%, and Evolution’s Live Dealer Lightning Roulette, which fell from 13th place with 0.97% of GGR to 18th with 0.8%.

AGS’ Mega Diamond slot also suffered significantly. After appearing in sixth place on last month’s list with 1.35% of GGR, the game slipped all the way to 25th place with just 0.61% this month.

New titles on the list included IGT’s Game King Video Poker, which entered the rankings at number 24 with 0.63% of GGR, and operators’ internal Craps titles, which accounted for 0.81% of GGR in 17th place.

Of the total top 25 performing game titles, six each came from Evolution and IGT, three each from Digital Gaming Corporation and Light & Wonder, two each from Reel Play and AGS, one each from Everi and Anaxi, and one from operators’ internal titles.

Top performing games in Canada

This month, EKG introduced a new report analysing the performance of suppliers in Canada’s iGaming market.

The report shows several key differences between the Canadian and US markets, as the presence of different suppliers in the market impacted the popularity of certain game titles.

For example, according to the report, Pragmatic Play was the largest supplier in the Canadian market by GGR, accounting for 18.6% of all revenue and therefore placing ahead of the largest US suppliers Evolution, IGT and Light & Wonder.

Pragmatic’s popularity in Canada is further evidenced by the list of the top 25 performing individual games in the market, seven of which were made by the supplier.

The top grossing game by GGR in Canada was Pragmatic’s Sweet Bonanza slot, which accounted for 1.94% of overall revenue.

Elsewhere, the supplier’s Gates of Olympus slot came in at fifth place with 1.46%, Sugar Rush came in at 11th with 0.81%, and the firm also saw titles occupy the 13th, 15th, 17th and 23rd positions in the rankings.

In Canada, IGT accounted for a further seven of the top 25 game titles, Evolution held four, Light & Wonder and Nolimit City each held two, while Everi, AGS and Reel Play each held one.

Light & Wonder failed to overtake IGT as the second largest iGaming supplier in the US in June, according to the latest Online Game Performance Report from Eilers & Krejcik Gaming (EKG).

Each month, EKG releases the report alongside Fantini Research. Gathering data directly from operators across 35 websites, 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 June 2023, presented in partnership with iGaming NEXT.


Top suppliers by GGR

The top three suppliers by GGR remained consistent with previous months as Evolution, IGT and Light & Wonder continued to occupy podium positions.

Compared to last month’s report, Evolution improved slightly as its share of GGR rose from 22.4% to 22.6%. 

That rise was likely driven by an increase in the supplier’s share of table games revenue (from 20.9% to 22.5%) and video poker revenue (2.7% to 4.5%), despite a decline in its share of slot revenue from 16.1% to 15.7%.

Meanwhile, IGT managed to open the gap between itself and Light & Wonder this month as its share of overall GGR rose significantly from 16.9% to 18%.

That put a bit more distance between the supplier and its closest competitor Light & Wonder, after the companies held perilously close GGR shares of 16.9% and 16.7% respectively last month.

Light & Wonder’s share of overall GGR fell this month from 16.7% to 16.3%, however, helping widen that gap even further.

Still, the supplier formerly known as Scientific Games remained the largest single slots supplier included in the report, with 19% of all slots GGR, down from 19.9% last month.

Elsewhere, fourth-largest supplier Everi made impressive gains, as its overall share of GGR grew from 8.9% to 9.7%, as a result of an increase in its share of slots GGR from 11.1% to 12.1%.

Digital Gaming Corproation suffered in fifth place, as its share of overal GGR fell from 7.5% to 6.4%, while operators’ proprietary ‘internal’ game titles also lost market share, from representing 8.1% of overall GGR last month to just 5.6% this month.

AGS made significant gains as it moved from ninth place with 2.1% of overall GGR to seventh place with 2.9%.

Another notable mover was Inspired, which moved from 13th place with 1.6% of GGR to 11th, with 2.2%.

Top performing games by GGR

This month’s top games by GGR leaderboard saw a return to form for IGT’s Blackjack, as its share of overall GGR lept from 1.86% last month to 2.93%, keeping the game firmly in pole position.

More good news followed for IGT, as its Cash Eruption slot also managed to increase its market share from 1.54% to 1.97%, moving from fourth place to second as a result.

Light & Wonder’s 88 Fortunes held on in third, meanwhile, despite a slight drop in GGR share from 1.55% to 1.49%.

AGS’ Capital Gains lived up to its name, as it jumped all the way from 14th place with 0.83% of GGR to fourth place with 1.37%.

Everi’s Cash Machine also had a good month in fifth, as its share of overall GGR reached 1.35%, up from 1.26% in seventh place last month.

One of the month’s biggest losers was Evolution’s Live Dealer Roulette, which has historically occupied a podium position in the rankings of best performing individual games.

This month, it fell from grace as it moved from second place with 1.58% of overall GGR last month to seventh, with just 1.23%.

The live casino specialist’s Blackjack title, however, managed to scrape back some market share as it moved up from 12th place with 0.97% of GGR to 10th, with 1.05%.

New additions to the top ranked games list included Light & Wonder’s Lightning Gorilla, which took 25th place with 0.5% of overall GGR, and Inspired’s Stacked Fire 7s, which appeared in 24th with 0.51%.

GGR trends by supplier

The above chart shows the development of market share over the past year at some of the largest suppliers in the US iGaming market.

The overall trend shows market leaders Evolution and IGT losing market share over time, while the next largest suppliers appear to be making steady gains.

Evolution has fallen from a high of 28.7% of GGR in December 2022, for example, to 22.6% in June 2023.

IGT, meanwhile, peaked at 24.5% of GGR in July 2022, before arriving at its 18% market share last month.

In contrast, Light & Wonder has been on a relatively steady upward trajectory across the same period, improving its market share from 13.5% in July last year to a peak of 16.9% in May 2023, before dipping slightly to 16.3% in June.

Everi has also made significant gains over the period, rising from a 6.4% low point in July 2022 to 9.7% in June 2023.

Besides Evolution and IGT, only operators’ internal games and High 5 Games found themselves in a worse position in June 2023 than in July 2022.

The GGR share attributable to internal games fell from 7.4% to 5.6% over the period, while High 5’s market share fell from 3.1% to 2.5%.

The other suppliers listed including Digital Gaming Corporatin, AGS and Reel Play, continue to make slow but steady progress towards higher market share.

Proportion of the market included in the report

Eilers & Krejcik includes a vast quantity of data in its reports, covering some 64% of the US iGaming market and now tracking more than 54,000 separate game titles every month across 35 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.

Light & Wonder is closing in on IGT to become the second largest iGaming supplier in the US by share of GGR, according to the latest Online Game Performance Report from Eilers & Krejcik Gaming (EKG).

Each month, EKG releases the report alongside Fantini Research. Gathering data directly from operators across 30 websites, 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 May 2023, presented in partnership with iGaming NEXT.


Top performing games by GGR

This month’s rankings of the top individual game titles by GGR saw many of the usual suspects make it back into the top positions.

IGT’s blackjack continued to be the single biggest title by GGR, though the proportion of overall market revenue it generated slipped significantly from 2.12% to 1.86%.

Evolution’s Live Dealer Roulette managed to overtake Light & Wonder’s 88 Fortunes slot in second place, meanwhile, despite a slight drop in its share of revenue from 1.64% to 1.58%.

L&W’s 88 Fortunes ended up in third, as its share of GGR fell from 1.62% to 1.55%.

Rounding out the top five titles were the Cash Eruption and Cleopatra slots (both IGT), which remained in fourth and fifth place respectively, as both slightly improved their GGR share to 1.54% and 1.44%.

Big movers this month included Reel Play’s 10000 Wonders 10k Ways slot, which jumped from 11th place to sixth, as its share of GGR increased from 1.09% to 1.41%.

L&W’s Jin Ji Bao Xi Endless Treasure also performed well, moving from 10th place with 1.1% of GGR to eighth place with 1.23%.

New appearances in the top 25 included Evolution’s Butterfly Staxx 2 slot, which stormed into 13th place with 0.86% of GGR having not previously appeared in the top game rankings.

Together, the top 25 games this month accounted for 25.23% of overall GGR, compared to 24.8% last month, suggesting that the dominance of the market’s best performing games continues.

Top suppliers by GGR

Breaking down the market mix by individual supplier, This report points to a mixed bag of results for the top three companies in the sector.

Market leader Evolution managed to increase its share of overall GGR from 22.1% to 22.4%, keeping it firmly in the number one spot among its competitors.

That increase in market share was helped by its growth in the slots and table games segments, where it grew its share from 15.7% to 16.1% and from 19.2% to 20.9%, respectively.

Meanwhile, second place by overall GGR went again to IGT, as its games accounted for some 16.9% of total GGR, down from 17.4% in the previous report.

That slip occurred as IGT’s share of the slots market fell from 16.2% to 15.4%, and while the company remains the largest single supplier of table games by GGR, its share in that segment also fell from 29.9% to 11.7%.

In addition to Evolution stealing market share in the table games segment, the product type has also been disrupted by an increasing number of operators releasing their own, ‘Internal’ versions of table games.

Proprietary table games made up 35.7% of the total segment in the latest report, up from 34.2% previously.

Light & Wonder remained in third place overall by GGR, but threatened to close the gap between itself and IGT, as its share of GGR grew from 16.2% to 16.7% – just 0.2 percentage points behind IGT.

The supplier managed to grow its share of slots GGR from 19% to 19.9%, though it was hindered by a fall in its share of table games revenue from 12.7% to 11.7%.

Other significant movers in this month’s supplier rankings included Reel Play, which grew its share of overall GGR from 2.5% to 2.8%, while Gaming Realms’ share fell in the other direction, from 2.1% to 1.8%.

The remainder of the list was broadly consistent with last month.

GGR trends by supplier

The above graphic helps to chart the growth of particular companies within the ecosystem from June 2022 to May 2023.

The graph clearly displays which companies are on a downward or upwards trajectory in the US market by their share of overall market GGR.

Evolution and IGT – undoubtedly the most dominant suppliers in the market – are shown to have been on a steady decline in terms of their market share over the past year.

Evolution’s share of GGR has dropped from 25.5% in June 2022 to 22.4% in May 2023, while IGT’s share has dropped even more dramatically from 21% to 16.9% over the same period.

L&W, meanwhile, is one of the businesses demonstrating a decidedly upward trajectory, as its share of overall GGR has grown slowly but steadily from 15% to 16.7% over the past 12 months.

Everi is also trending upwards and has shown the fastest growth of any supplier included in the report over the past 12 months, with its share of GGR increasing from 5.4% to 8.9%.

Digital Gaming Corporation is also up over the period, from 5.6% to 7.5%, while the rest of the companies included in the graph (including operators’ own internal titles) are down slightly.

Proportion of the market included in the report

Eilers & Krejcik includes a vast quantity of data in its reports, covering some 59% of the US iGaming market and now tracking almost 44,000 separate game titles every month across 30 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.

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

Gathering data directly from operators across 30 websites, 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 February 2023, presented in partnership with iGaming NEXT.


Top US iGaming suppliers by GGR

The biggest mover this month came in the form of the ‘Internal’ category of online games, referring to operators’ proprietary titles.

After increasing the number of games tracked in the category from 52 in February’s report to 453 this month, the category moved from being the 22nd largest ‘supplier’ on the list to fourth, behind industry stalwarts Evolution, IGT and Light & Wonder.

On the surface, the big three appeared to lose market share as a result, although their rankings remain consistent with previous months.

Evolution’s share of total GGR tracked in the report fell from 26.2% to 24.6%, as IGT’s fell from 20.8% to 17.9% and L&W’s fell from 18.7% to 17.2%.

Everi, which previously held fourth place with 7.2% of overall GGR, slipped into fifth despite increasing its share to 7.4%.

Digital Gaming Corporation suffered in the rankings, meanwhile, slipping from fifth place with 6.9% of GGR to sixth with 5.6%.

High 5 Games also took a hit as it fell from sixth place with 2.6% of GGR to ninth, with 2.2%.

AGS, Greentube, White Hat Studios, Fantasma Games and Incredible Technologies, meanwhile, each managed to maintain or improve their share of overall GGR.

The introduction of more operators’ proprietary games in the report has likely aided in providing a more accurate snapshot of the supplier market.

Top game titles by GGR

While the percentage of GGR attributable to each title varies, the top four grossing games in US iGaming have remained in place from last month’s report to this.

IGT’s Blackjack continues to be the top grossing game title overall, though its share of overall GGR fell significantly from 2.63% to 2.15%.

Evolution’s Live Dealer Roulette, in second place, became a reasonable challenger for the top spot, having increased its share of GGR from 1.98% to 2.13%.

L&W’s 88 fortune’s slot continued in third position having increased its share of GGR from 1.61% to 1.76%, while IGT’s Cash Eruption saw a modest increase from 1.35% to 1.42% in fourth.

Evolution’s Live Dealer Blackjack took a hit, falling from fifth place with 1.33% of GGR to eighth with 1.12%.

Meanwhile L&W’s Jewel of the Dragon Red Phoenix slot, which made a surprise appearance as the sixth highest grossing game in February’s report with 1.22% of GGR, has since disappeared from the top 25 rankings, suggesting its share of GGR has since fallen under 0.57%.

New appearances in this month’s top 25 include Everi’s Double Jackpot Gems slot, in 22nd position with 0.63% of GGR share, and Evolution’s Infinite Blackjack, which enters the rankings in 21st place with 0.64% of GGR share.

Evolution’s First Person Craps also entered the rankings in seventh place, with 1.13% of market share, having not appeared in the February report’s top 25 grossing games.

Evolution boasted the most games of any single supplier in the top 25 rankings, with 11 of the titles. IGT and L&W each supplied four of the top grossing games, while Everi and Reel Play each supplied two.

AGS and Digital Gaming Corporation supplied one each of the remaining top 25.

GGR by supplier and game type

Breaking down GGR share by game type for each supplier shows how the introduction of more ‘Internal’ games into the report has changed the way the market looks.

The category accounts for 5.4% of all slot GGR, 11.5% of video poker GGR and an impressive 31.7% share of the table games category.

The introduction of this data has seen a significant reduction in the GGR share by game type for each of the market’s top three suppliers.

Evolution’s share of slot GGR fell from 22.4% in February’s report to 16.4%, while its share of table games fell from 34.2% to just 22%. The firm still accounts for all of the live casino revenue included in the report, however.

L&W’s share of the slots market improved from 20.5% to 20.8%, but its proportion of table game revenue fell from 13.3% to 12.7%, while its share of video poker GGR slipped from 3% to 2%.

IGT, meanwhile, also saw significant reductions in its market share. The firm’s proportion of slots GGR fell from 19.1% to 17%, while its table game share dropped from a huge 47.3% down to 30.4%.

Other significant movers included High 5 Games, which managed to increase its share of slot GGR from 2.1% to 2.9%, and Everi, whose share of the same category fell from 11.3% to 9.7%.

Ainsworth’s slot share tumbled from 2.1% to 1.3%, Konami slipped from 1.8% to 1.2%, and AGS from 3.4% to 2.9%.

Reel Play, meanwhile, significantly increased its share of slots GGR from 2.3% to 2.9%.

Proportion of the market included in the report

Eilers & Krejcik includes a vast quantity of data in its reports, covering some 59% of the US iGaming market and now tracking more than 42,000 separate game titles every month across 30 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 December 2022, presented in partnership with iGaming NEXT.

Top US iGaming suppliers by GGR

Evolution held onto the top spot as the leading US iGaming supplier by GGR included in the report.

The live casino specialist managed to increase its overall market share of GGR from 29.8% to 30.7%.

That growth came at least in part at the expense of several smaller suppliers, for example Digital Gaming Corporation, whose share of GGR fell from 6.8% in November’s report to just 5.2%.

Gaming Realm’s share of GGR also slipped from 2.8% to 2.6%, a reduction which saw it fall from sixth position to seventh. 

High 5 Games also took a serious tumble from 2.7% of GGR in seventh position to 2.1%, in tenth.

Evolution’s biggest competitors, meanwhile, managed to hang onto their respective positions for another month.

IGT secured second position with 21.6% of GGR – consistent with previous reports – while Light & Wonder continued in third, as its share of GGR grew modestly from 17.3% to 17.4%.

December was also a good month for Everi, whose share of GGR grew from 8.1% in E&K’s November report to 8.8% in the latest edition. The firm continued in fourth place in the rankings.

Ainsworth, meanwhile, was the leaderboard’s biggest mover, doubling its share of GGR from 0.8% in November’s report to 1.6%, and moving from 13th to 11th position as a result.

Top performing games by GGR

The performance of the US market’s most-played individual game titles showed no signs of slowing down this month.

IGT’s Blackjack continued to account for a relatively mammoth proportion of customer spend, accounting for 2.68% of all US iGaming GGR included in the report (up from 2.65%).

Evolution’s Live Dealer Roulette held onto its place in second, though its overall share of GGR took quite a dive from 2.42% to 2.09%.

Light & Wonder’s 88 Fortunes slot continued in third position, growing its share of GGR from 1.73% to 2.01%.

Evolution’s own version of Blackjack, meanwhile, slipped significantly, from being the fourth highest grossing game on the leaderboard with 1.39% of GGR, to 12th position with just 1.03%.

It was replaced in fourth place by Everi’s Cash Machine, whose share of GGR grew steadily from 1.37% to 1.54%.

IGT’s Fortune Coin and Cleopatra slots also continued to perform admirably, as they took up fifth and sixth position, respectively.

New entrants on the top grossing titles rankings included Evolution’s Christmas-themed Jingle Bells Power Reels, which accounted for 0.47% of December’s GGR, and Light & Wonder’s Dancing Drums Explosion, which generated 0.55%.

Evolution’s renowned Starburst slot also continued to deliver for the supplier, bringing in 0.79% of total GGR in 15th position, up from 0.57% in 20th place.

In the report, Evolution supplied 12 of the top 25 individual game titles, while IGT supplied six, Light & Wonder supplied three and Everi, AGS, Reel Play and Digital Gaming Corporation each supplied one.

GGR by supplier and game type

Looking at the breakdown of GGR by game type for the top US iGaming suppliers, each of the firm’s areas of expertise is laid bare.

Evolution’s dominance can be seen in its 22.4% share of slot GGR and 34.1% of table games revenue, while it continues to account for all of the live casino GGR included in the report.

Light & Wonder continues to be the firm’s biggest competitor in the slots market, with a 20.5% share of GGR for the game type, while it also holds 13.3% of table games revenue and 24.3% of instant win GGR.

IGT holds an undeniably strong lead in the table games segment with 47.3% of all revenue, while it also holds firmly onto third position in the slots category with 19.1% of revenue there.

The firm has a diverse portfolio of offerings, also generating upwards of 94% of video poker revenue included in the report and 8.4% of instant win GGR.

While no firms look set to challenge the dominance of the slots segment’s big three, Everi holds a respectable 11.3% of slot GGR while Digital Gaming Corporation and AGS account for 6.7% and 3.4%, respectively.

Gaming Realms, meanwhile, is the standout supplier in the instant win category with 39.4% of revenue, while Design Works Gaming generated 15.7% of GGR in that segment.

Eilers & Krejcik includes a vast quantity of data in its reports, covering some 59% of the US iGaming market and now tracking more than 38,000 separate game titles every month across 30 online casino sites.

Top US iGaming suppliers by GGR

Evolution and IGT more than defended their respective positions as the first and second ranked iGaming suppliers in the US by GGR.

Live casino giant Evolution managed to increase its share of total GGR by 2.7 percentage points to 29.8%, while IGT held onto second place with a 21.6% market share, an improvement of 0.8 percentage points over the previous month.

Light & Wonder hung on in third position, too, though its share of overall GGR decreased from 18.3% to 17.3%.

Having sat at the top of the leaderboard for slots GGR in last month’s report – with 21.7% of all slots GGR analysed attributable to the business – L&W slipped back to being the second-largest slot supplier in the market this month as Evolution returned to the number one spot in the vertical.

Everi, meanwhile, was able to notably increase its market share from 7.3% to 8.1%, while Gaming Realms took a fall in the other direction, with market share of GGR falling from 3.6% to 2.8%.

The only business which remained conspicuously absent from the top 10 was Novomatic-owned Greentube, which previously held position as the ninth largest supplier in the market in October’s report, accounting for 2.5% of market GGR.

Figures from the supplier appear to be absent from the latest report.

The biggest mover this month was slot supplier Design Works Gaming, whose market share jumped from 0.5% to 1.6% in the space of a single month, catapulting the business from the sixteenth largest iGaming supplier in the market to the eleventh.

Meanwhile, Ainsworth’s market share slipped from 1% to 0.8%, while Konami’s dropped from 1.3% to 1.1%.

Top performing games by GGR

If a larger proportion of GGR appeared to be concentrated in the hands of a smaller group of suppliers this month, the same was true for the performance of individual game titles.

IGT’s Blackjack and Evolution’s Live Dealer Roulette secured their respective first and second positions at the top of the leaderboard of individual titles.

The former increased its share of overall GGR from 2.19% to 2.65%, while the latter grew from 2.15% to 2.42%.

Those gains appear to have come at the cost of other titles in the top five, as Light & Wonder slot 88 Fortunes – which held onto third position for another month – saw its share of GGR slip from 1.99% to 1.73%.

Evolution’s Blackjack also suffered, slipping from 1.5% to 1.39%, while Everi’s Cash Machine slot saw a modest increase of GGR share from 1.35% to 1.37%. The slot effectively swapped places with IGT’s Cleopatra, which saw its GGR share shrink in the opposite direction from 1.37% to 1.35%.

IGT’s Fortune Coin slot was another of the month’s relative losers, slipping from fourth position in the leaderboard with 1.56% of GGR to seventh, with 1.34%.

Evolution boasted an impressive 12 of the top 25 performing games, joined by six titles from IGT and three from Light & Wonder.

Inspired, Reel Play, AGS and Everi boasted one title each on the leaderboard.

Notable additions to the top 25 include Evolution’s Zillard King which joined the bottom of the leaderboard for the first time with 0.49% of GGR, and IGT’s Double Diamond slot which entered the fray in 19th position with 0.58% of GGR.

Online casino play by device type

As well as shedding light on the market dynamics taking place between suppliers as each vies for position in the burgeoning US iGaming market, E&K’s report also provides keen insights into customer behaviours and preferences.

The report showed that in October, 65% of play took place on mobile devices, with desktop accounting for the majority of the remainder at 33% and tablet play making up just 2% of total play.

Those figures change depending on the kind of games being played, however.

For slots and table games, the statistics are fairly consistent with the overall market dynamics – and perhaps unsurprisingly, given that those two verticals account for a large majority of iGaming spend.

Other game types present a different story, however. For video poker, the split between desktop and mobile is much closer to 50/50, while instant win and bingo/keno players display an ever stronger preference for mobile than the average, with the format accounting for 78.4% and 74.2% of play in those verticals, respectively.

In virtual sports betting, however, desktop is the clear winner accounting for 73.7% of bets – marking out this vertical as the only one in which desktop betting is more popular than mobile.

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 39,000 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.
