The overall expenditure of Americans for Casino and online poker is growing compared to the same month of 2015: in February 2016 46 million euros were reached, a +18.5% compared to the same month last year.

According to the data provided by the operators active in the online game market in USA, the growth of online casinos continues, with one total expenditure of approximately 33 million euros only last month, an incredible +35% compared to 2015. A trend that in any case sees a slight drop compared to January, in which the expenditure has reached the record figure of over 37 million euros ( +44.6% compared to January 2015).

The increase in registered spending is due only in part to the increase in the number of players on the American territory. The most important motivation that recorded a positive sign so clear compared to last year is to be found in the intervention of the Customs and Monopolies Agency as regards the credit recovery from the unauthorized game market, thanks to the increasing number of agreements with large international companies that provide services and software on which online casinos are based.
