Analysts project the US online gambling market to have a CAGR of 15.41 percent from 2020 to 2025. They looked at the current legislative framework for online wagering in the nation and saw that only four states allow online sports betting to date. They are Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, and Nevada.
At present, New Jersey is the biggest online gambling market in the US. There are more than a dozen licensed online poker rooms and casino sites operating in the state. Thus, the market is worth more than $225 million annually. Also, there are several online sports wagering apps and sportsbooks running in New Jersey.
According to a sports betting software report, the top online casinos in New Jersey in June 2019 was The Golden Nugget/Betfair with revenue of $13.6 million. In second place was the Resorts AC with 6.39 million. In third place is Borgata/Party with $5.66 million.
