Visualized: The Largest Online Gambling Markets

Gone are the days when gambling enthusiasts had to travel to the nearest casino or find underground gambling dens for a few games of poker or blackjack.

The start of internet gambling or virtual gambling provided enthusiasts with an avenue to spend their time (and money) at the click of a button from anywhere in the world.

Today, these digital casinos have turned into a multibillion-dollar industry in some countries. This graphic by Louis Lugas Wicaksono uses data from the H2 Gambling Capital—as cited by The Guardian—to highlight the countries with the largest regulated online gambling markets.

Biggest Online Gambling Markets in 2021

Gross online gaming revenue globally was estimated to have reached a whopping $102 billion in 2021. Here are the largest markets on a per-country basis.

RankCountryOnline Gambling Revenue (USD, 2021)
1🇬🇧 United Kingdom$12.48 billion
2🇺🇸 United States$10.96 billion
3🇦🇺 Australia$6.55 billion
4🇮🇹 Italy$4.51 billion
5🇫🇷 France$3.83 billion
6🇩🇪 Germany$3.65 billion
7🇨🇦 Canada$2.55 billion
8🇸🇪 Sweden$2.10 billion
9🇪🇸 Spain$1.60 billion
10🇬🇷 Greece$1.30 billion

Far and away at the top of the rankings, the UK ($12.5B) narrowly surpasses the U.S. ($11B) as the largest online gambling market in the world.

Next up is Australia ($6.5B) in third, comparatively with roughly half of the UK’s gaming spend. Europe features prominently on the top 10 list, including Italy, France, Germany, Sweden, Spain, and Greece.

Notably, no countries from Asia, South America, or Africa feature in the top 10. That’s despite some Asian countries having higher economic outputs and GDP per capita metrics than some of the featured European countries.

The True Cost of Gambling Revenue

Online gambling markets rose to new heights of popularity during the COVID-19 pandemic, as people were pushed into isolation with only time and the internet for company. In turn, this raised concerns of gambling addiction and its impacts, including crime.

England alone saw close to 3,000 cases of theft, fraud, and other gambling-related crimes between 2019 and 2020. Governments have now started pushing for policy changes to control these issues before it is too late.

Did you know that some computer chips are now retailing for the price of a new BMW?

As computers invade nearly every sphere of life, so too have the chips that power them, raising the revenues of the businesses dedicated to designing them.

But how did various chipmakers measure against each other last year?

We rank the biggest semiconductor companies by their percentage share of the industry’s revenues in 2023, using data from Omdia research.

Which Chip Company Made the Most Money in 2023?

Market leader and industry-defining veteran Intel still holds the crown for the most revenue in the sector, crossing $50 billion in 2023, or 10% of the broader industry’s topline.

All is not well at Intel, however, with the company’s stock price down over 20% year-to-date after it revealed billion-dollar losses in its foundry business.

Meanwhile, Nvidia is very close to overtaking Intel, after declaring $49 billion of topline revenue for 2023. This is more than double its 2022 revenue ($21 billion), increasing its share of industry revenues to 9%.

Nvidia’s meteoric rise has gotten a huge thumbs-up from investors. It became a trillion dollar stock last year, and broke the single-day gain record for market capitalization this year.

Other chipmakers haven’t been as successful. Out of the top 20 semiconductor companies by revenue, 12 did not match their 2022 revenues, including big names like Intel, Samsung, and AMD.

The Many Different Types of Chipmakers

All of these companies may belong to the same industry, but they don’t focus on the same niche.

According to Investopedia, there are four major types of chips, depending on their functionality: microprocessors, memory chips, standard chips, and complex systems on a chip.

Nvidia’s core business was once GPUs for computers (graphics processing units), but in recent years this has drastically shifted towards microprocessors for analytics and AI.

These specialized chips seem to be where the majority of growth is occurring within the sector. For example, companies that are largely in the memory segment—Samsung, SK Hynix, and Micron Technology—saw peak revenues in the mid-2010s.
