Press Release.- The global gambling sector saw some recovery in 2021 from the Covid-19 pandemic that had reduced revenues by more than 20% in 2020.
In 2021, global gambling revenues rose by 12% to US$ 399bn, according to GBGC’s research for its Global Gambling Report.
But that figure is still well below the amount recorded in 2019, before the Covid-19 pandemic.
Restrictions on travel and hospitality venues were still commonplace around the world in 2021 and continue into 2022.
