The mobile marketing agency WakeApp, which is a guide to the world of mobile, has received another license to promote products in the igaming and sports betting verticals from the Arizona Department of Gaming. This means that from now on, licensed clients of the company can use the services of the agency and get hundreds of thousands of new players in this state.

WakeApp is actively expanding its presence in promising countries and opening up new opportunities to promote products in their territories.

In the state of Arizona, the sports betting vertical was fully legalized only in September 2021.

According to the Arizona Department of Gaming, in the first 2 months after the legalization of betting in this state, players made more than $777 million in bets, most of which were made using mobile devices. This is almost double the previous record in Virginia, where more than $324 million in bets were made in the first 2 months after legalization.

Emerging Gambling Markets

Published

Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

There’s no stopping the rapid rise of gambling markets and the unprecedented growth they’re witnessing within their respective sectors. The United States of America has long been burdened by-laws and legislation to prevent its citizens from placing wagers and gambling on casino games – with the exception of Nevada.

However, since 2018 when the U.S. supreme court abolished PASPA (Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act), a significant number of states have adopted total legality of gambling online and in casinos.

Gambling culture has always existed in the U.S., and the black-market era is eventually becoming a thing of the past. Emerging gambling markets such as online wagering are still illegal in many states. Still, with an undeniably positive outcome on the economy, new regulations are coming to fruition in most regions.

Thanks to federal law, online sports betting has been illegal, and, surprisingly, America took a long time to alter this downfall. The lucrativeness of the gambling markets and potential revenue is what states have missed out on. Nevada, New Jersey and West Virginia have set the precedence, showing incredible revenue figures from markets such as online sports betting.

The state of Arizona is one of the most recent areas to adopt online gambling, and if you’re an Arizona native, you can take advantage of their welcome promo codes right now. Because of bonuses, greater populations, and already booming markets, Arizona, alongside New York, Maryland, North Carolina, and Indiana, are expected to enter the top 10 highest-grossing states inside this sector.

New York, in particular, has been predicted to develop into America’s number one gambling state, as they’ll transition into a complete gambling state in 2022. One factor in New York’s expected success is their bonus offers, which could provide customers with matched deposits as high as $5,000. In addition to the large bonuses, the sheer volume of gamblers in New York should assist their expected market dominance and the state’s willingness to introduce multiple licenses.

With that said, an outsider in America’s sister country, Canada, is likely to become the most significant player in 2022. Both gambling and iGaming markets in Ontario are seeing huge interest from brands and players alike. With a population nearing 16 million, sportsbooks, casino enthusiasts, and 80 something brands are hunting for a license within Ontario.

Fintan Costello, the manager of BonusFinder.com, said:While the larger established U.S. states will continue to play a crucial role in stateside growth in 2022, our index shows that newly regulated markets such as New York and Maryland will outmuscle many others due to their immense player volume potential and highly competitive markets and bonuses which many simply don’t have right now.

While the new U.S. markets will be the benchmark for other emerging and existing states, nothing will compare to Ontario, which will explode when regulated in early 2022.

It’s already a booming market pre-regulation, but we fully expect it to significantly outperform any U.S. state by some distance and for brands to race to the border to secure a significant piece of the action.”

As of now, all U.S. states have the right to legalize gambling and sports betting to any level. Several gaming markets have jumped at the opportunity. These provinces are where you’ll need to be located if you want to participate in locally regulated sports betting, and most of them have/ or are in the process of adopting online gambling. The complete list of states with online gambling include:

  • Nevada
  • New Jersey
  • West Virginia
  • Pennsylvania
  • Rhode Island
  • Iowa
  • New York
  • Indiana
  • Oregon
  • Illinois
  • New Hampshire
  • Michigan
  • Washington D.C
  • Tennessee
  • Virginia
  • South Dakota
  • Connecticut
  • Arizona Wyoming

Of course, over 50% of American states now provide some form of sports wagering – the fastest growing sector within the gambling market. The states above have joined the online betting market or are close to, but we anticipate that by 2024, the majority of states in America will embark on claiming their piece of the pie. The potential profits from this sector cannot be ignored, so it’s no surprise that consideration has flared within so many regions in such little time.
