The last quarter of 2020 saw positive figures for both quarter-on-quarter (20%) and year-on-year (24.8%). Total Gaming Revenue (GGR) for the period totaled 231 million euros. This coincides with an increase in active accounts, averaging more than 1 million monthly results and growing at a rate of 19% compared to the third quarter of 2020. What’s interesting is that from 1 million accounts, almost 400,000 are new game accounts, close to a 30% increase from the previous quarter. Deposits and withdrawals increased by more than 25%.
A closer look at the situation shows that betting and casinos are the biggest contributors in terms of GGRs of €103.5 million (44.8% of the total ratio) and €97.8 million (42.3%) respectively. The other categories were much smaller, but Poker took almost €25 million (10.8%), €3.9 million (1.7%), and €110 million (0.5%) in the contest. Other interesting figures include €148.8 million for marketing, with alliance costs, sponsorship and promotions up more than 30%, and promotions down 33%. 경마
Despite 2020 being a difficult year due to the pandemic, overall conditions for gambling in Spain rose 13.7%, showing a positive trend, leading to an increase of EUR 858.8 million in the GGR. The amount of deposits and withdrawals increased by about 20%, while the number of active gamblers was around 1.48 million euros (8.4% increase). Marketers also saw their spending rise in 2020, reaching the 462 million euro (24.2%) level, with only a drop in affiliates, which is different from the fourth-quarter trend.
The annual rate by sector was not very positive compared to Q4 2020. Betting therefore fell 3.5% to 336 million euros, but still contributed the most to the overall GGR at almost 43%. Casino came in second with 41.2%, meaning 351 million euros and nearly 30% year-on-year growth. Other branches also saw bingo grow 30% (euro 16.5 million) in 2020 and poker increase 35.7% (euro 1.1 million), while competition surged 192% (euro 8M).
