Global Gaming Outlook

The casino and online gaming market to 2015

The industry analysis in this paper is divided into two sections.

The first part—which makes up the majority of the report—covers traditional physical casino gaming. This consists of betting activities conducted within “bricks
-and-mortar” casinos, including land-based casinos, riverboats, dockside casinos, tribal casinos, racinos (slots at racetracks), and cruise ships. Spending totals
represent gross gaming revenue, which is the house win, or the amount wagered minus the amount returned to players as winnings. Forecasts for gross gaming
revenue take into account the key performance indicators and drivers for each region and marketplace.

The second part covers online gaming activities in each region and the evolution of the respective markets. We close the section by describing our vision for each region in 2015.
