Once again H2 features as the Economist's chart of the day reporting 2015 Global Gambling Gross Win was expected to dip 2.6% to US$359bn in 2015 as a result in a slowdown in Macau's casino business. Austalians' remains their mantel as the largest gamblers per head in the world with the United States the largest marker in absolute terms accounting for c28% of global regulated gambling activity. However, at its peak the United States once accounted for 35% of the regualted global gambling market. A lack of development of onshore interactive gambling and the rise of regualted gambling in China (Macau casinos and Mainland Lotteries / including sportsbetting) have been key drivers. China (including the SARs of Hong Kong and Macau) is now the 2nd largest gambling market in the world now accounting for c19% of the global market. Quite an achiebvement for a market that was not even in the top 10 in the year 2000.
