Infographic Tracks Boom of $35 Billion Online Gambling Industry

A new infographic charts the growth of what is now a $35 billion online gambling market. It all began in 1994, when the tiny Caribbean island of Antigua and Barbuda allowed operators to apply for licenses.

This paved the way for offshore arranagements and remote gambling, which was curtailed in the US with the passing of 2006 UIGEA. This didn’t halt the growth of gambling elsewhere. The mobile gambling market alone was worth $10 billion in 2014, whilst social gambling is valued at $1.6 billion.
