U.S. Commercial Game Sales Record High In Q3 2023

According to the American Gaming Association’s Commercial Gaming Revenue Tracker, the third quarter of 2023 marked the best third quarter for the U.S. commercial gaming industry, bringing in $16.17 billion. This is a 6.1% year-on-year increase and is the 11th consecutive quarter of annual revenue growth.

Q3 2023 also marks the second-highest-selling commercial gaming quarter ever, following Q1 2023. Despite early indicators of a fourth-quarter slowdown, the industry is preparing for its third consecutive record year with a 9.9% lead from 2022 to September.

“As we grow across land-based and online gaming, we are providing job opportunities to millions of Americans and making a strong economic contribution to communities across the United States through increased tax revenue,” said Bill Miller, AGA President and CEO. “Our continued drive reflects gaming as the number one entertainment option for millions of American adults.”

Game states and local governments saw a direct influx of game taxes in the third quarter. Commercial game operators paid about $3.43 billion in taxes directly related to game revenue, up 4.7% year-on-year. 슬롯머신

Industry revenue rose year-over-year across all vertical segments in the third quarter of 2023, with both land-based casinos and iGaming setting all-time quarterly records. As expected, comparisons strengthened year-on-year, slowing the pace of industry growth for the second consecutive quarter.

Traditional slot machine and table game sales combined were $12.49 billion for the quarter, up 1.8% year-over-year, while iGaming was $1.52 billion, up 26% year-over-year.

Combined with direct participation and online sports betting, it posted a strong quarter, with revenue of $2.15 billion, up 22.8% year over year. Most of this growth was driven by Maryland (online), Massachusetts, Nebraska and Ohio (a state that was not operational a year ago). Vertical is set to see Americans record $79 billion in the first nine months of 2023, up 32.7% from last year.

“Americans continue to migrate their actions to protect record numbers of legal and regulated sports books. This continued demand only strengthens the need for federal and state enforcement of illegal offshore operators,” Miller added.
