This aims to present an overview of the brick-and-mortar casino industry’s financial health and future prospects, with gross win projections to 2026. 

In this first edition, the impact of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic is stark. With the majority of casinos shuttered for significant parts of the year, global gross win dropped 43.3% year-on-year to $71.1bn in 2020. 

With many countries still dealing with Covid-19 today, there is only likely to be a gradual recovery for properties in 2021. Casino gross win will rise to $100.2bn – a 40.9% rise – before surpassing pre-pandemic levels in 2023. 

The 2020 shutdowns saw casino’s share of global gambling gross win fall to 22.8%. While this will steadily recover through to 2026, H2 expects that it will remain below the 31.3% share reported for 2019. 

The US is expected to contribute the majority of casino gross win in 2021 (59%), making it the largest region by far. 

However, Macau still stands out as the largest single market. Its share of 15% sets it ahead of Nevada (8%) and the Philippines (4%).
