In December, a record month for online casino enabled Italian online GGR reach its highest level since May 2021, but revenue was down on the previous year.
GGR totaled €312.0 million, up from €304.2 million in November. However, this figure was down 13.0% from December 2020, when revenue soared to €359 million, a figure that has yet to be surpassed.
With revenue up to €165.5 million, the highest monthly total of the year, online casino was the main driver of the month-over-month gain. Although no single operator dominated the online casino market, Playtech’s Snai took the lead with 9.1 percent, ahead of Sisal, which is about to be bought, with 8.5 percent. Long-time industry leader Pokerstars was in third position with an 8.2 percent market share, while Lottomatica was in fourth place with a 7.5 percent market share.
