July’s figure surpassed the previous record of $413.2m set in May this year and was also far higher than the $283.1m posted in July of 2021.

The significant year-on-year rise was partly down to the reopening of land-based casinos, with some facilities having been closed for parts of July 2020 due to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19), while others faced strict operating restrictions.

However, many measures have now been eased or removed completely, allowing patrons to return to the casinos in greater numbers.

Breaking down segment performance, online gambling revenue for the month amounted to $88.7m, up 63.1% from $54.4m last year. Online slots revenue was by far the main source of income for operators at $63.2m, ahead of online table games revenue at $22.9m and online poker revenue at $2.6m.
