Following a second quarter 2020 of loss of activity due to the cessation of sports competitions, the online gambling market recorded a spectacular recovery in the third quarter 2020 marked by a turnover growth of 25% compared to the second quarter 2020. The market even recovered to a level significantly higher than the one before the health crisis, with a turnover growth of 17% compared to the third quarter of 2019, coupled with an increase of 29 % of the number of players (i.e. 2.7 million players).
Isabelle FALQUE-PIERROTIN, Chairwoman of the ANJ, and René JANSEN, Chairman of the Kansspelautoriteit (Netherlands), have signed a Memorandum of Understanding on 23 October 2020.
In the 2nd quarter of 2020, the online gambling market recorded a decrease of 6% of its GGR* and a decrease in active player accounts of 9%. It is the sports betting sector that has been the most affected by the effects of the health crisis with a decrease of 56% of its GGR. Conversely, the poker and, to a lesser extent, horseracing betting segments recorded a sharp increase of their GGR.
