A New Frontier: The web has completely and forever changed the landscape of every industry that humanity has been involved in, and gambling is no exception. Since businesses have all been flocking to the massive virtual marketplace known as the internet, some have been flopping there, and others flourishing.
Online gambling has grown quickly in popularity. There are many new gamblers that are coming on the scene thanks to the convenience and safety that online gambling offers. This new frontier has plenty of intrepid explorers, but only a few had what it took to survive the great gambling winter. The survivors of the storm are today the biggest names in online gambling, and we put together a list of the biggest ones:
Playtech – Known for being a dominant industry leader for a long time, this company is worth a whopping 3.63 billion. This UK-based online gambling company was once the third biggest online gambling brand, offering some of the best casino games around. While they are now considered the 7th biggest company, they still have some of the best online casinos around and are known for developing some of the most high quality and exciting games in the virtual space.
William Hill PLC – Worth a staggering 3.86 billion, William Hill may be one of the oldest operating companies in the online gambling arena. While this juggernaut has experienced a market decline over the past few years, it is still a behemoth that many fans flock to regularly. However, due to increasing competition in the online gambling space, William Hill does not enjoy the utter dominance it once did. This is just the way business works.
Scientific Games Corporation – A newer and exciting online gambling business, SGC is worth over $4.57 billion dollars. While this massive company only recently made the transition to the online space, it has done so in a big way. One of the biggest moves for this company was its acquisition of the NYX gaming group in 2017. SGC’s success can also be contributed to increasing popularity of their other brands, such as Barcrest and Bally Technology. A company based at the heart of the action, Las Vegas, Nevada, this already booming company has some serious potential to climb to the top of the online gambling heap. With a fast-growing fan base and savvy business owners at the wheel, not too many would bet against the SGC.
Patty Power Betfair – Hands down the most powerful brand and online gambling presence on this list, Patty Power Betfair is worth over 9.98 billion dollars. This online company has been doing well for some time and has been featured in numerous articles as the number one earning online gambling company for several years. The company’s raw revenue and growth rate make it the envy of any entrepreneur. One of the things that may be responsible for their popularity is that they collaborate often with other big companies in the same industry such as Playtech and IGC.
