eSports Revenues Could Spike by 41.3% Says New Research Study

Results from a new research study has been released with the results predicting that eSports could soar by the end of this year. Newzoo, independent researcher conducted the study saying that the eSports industry will see revenues increase by 41.3% amounting to more than $695 million this year. An earlier prediction from Newzoo last year stated:

“Esports-related revenues are on pace to generate $493 million in 2016, according to a report from intelligence firm Newzoo. That’s up more than 51.7 percent from 2015, and it is also a 7 percent increase from the projection that Newzoo made to kick off 2016.”

Peter Warman, Newzoo’s Chief Executive said that,

“For brands, media, and entertainment companies, eSports provides a chance to capitalise on the favorite pastime of digital natives and Millennials: playing games and watching game content. With the arrival of live streams and events, gaming has entered the realm of broadcasters and media that can now apply their advertising business model to a market previously out of reach for them.”

Warman also stated that eSports is accelerating the union of different established industries as well as growing exponentially as a new business that isn’t dependent on the industry as a whole. The research study looked at all aspects that will have some impact on the future of the vertical. It concluded with an impressive outcome after its last study that took place 2 years ago when it predicted eSports to reach the $325 million market.

Playtech 2016 Half Year Results Presentation Showcases Fantastic Gaming Year as Shareholders Set to Benefit

Plyatech 2016 Interim Half Year Gaming ResultsThe world’s biggest online gambling provider released its first half of 2016 figures and, of course, continues to grow. The gambling provider earned more than $378 million for the first 6 months.

The profits amounted to an 18% increase compared to last year at this time. Not only does the industry as a whole get to benefit from Playtech’s products, but their shareholders do to as well.

Shareholders are going to receive $168 million in dividends the company said. This amount is huge compared to what most companies give their stake holders. The benefits of this monetary incursion are superior. Playtech wasn’t too impressed with its poker and bingo products, but their casino and sports betting definitely made up for the lack of for its financials.

Playtech’s online poker revenues sat at $6.7 million during H1 2015, this year $5.6 million. Bingo decreased its revenues by 11%, but casino games which include slots, blackjack, roulette, and dwarf poker generated the most with the total numbers.

Sports betting grew this year compared to last too. Last year they earned $18 million, this year $20 million, so a little increase, but some growth is better than no growth at all.

Gaming Analysts Hopeful of Decline Turnaround in Macau

May 20, 2015 · Filed Under Online Gambling News 

Financial Analysts Predict Macau Turnaround Could Take Months, Gaming Analysts Sees Hope After Eleven Monthly Gaming Revenue Declines

Gaming Analysts Hopeful of Decline Turnaround in MacauReports have surfaced Monday that Goldman Sachs’ Gaming Analyst Steven Kent expects Macau’s gambling industry to not recover with seeing any kind of a turnaround for months, or possibly even quarters. Kent’s exact words concerning the 11 straight month declines is “much more than everybody feared, and we do not see a turnaround for months, possible quarters.”

Double digit declines since September 2014 were seen for Macau’s revenues with a record breaking 49% drop in February making total revenues down 37.1% for 2015.

The financial gaming analyst also downgraded stock projections for Las Vegas Sands Corp, Wynn Resorts Ltd and MGM Resorts International.

“Las Vegas Sands’ footprint in Macau has gotten so big that we expect its results will become a ‘proxy’ for the market,” Kent wrote. “We believe it will be difficult for the company to see a reversal in its fortunes without the broader Macau market also showing a turnaround.”

Kent strongly believes that the Las Vegas Sands Corp, although he thinks highly of the company, is what has affected Macau the most with more than 65% of Macau’s revenues coming from Sands Cotai Central, Four Seasons Macau, The Venetian Macao Resort and Hotel, and Sands Macau.

Stock price target for Las Vegas Sands was cut by Goldman Sachs from $60 per share to $52 per share, Wynn Resorts from $154 to $145 per share, MGM Resorts was reduced the least from $22 to $21 per share.

The industry expects Las Vegas Sands to deliver results since they are at footprint in Macau, but it’s difficult for the operator to do so when other company’s aren’t showing a turnaround as well. By years end gaming analysts are predicting that casino revenue tops out between $30 billion and $35 billion.

“We stuck with our positive ratings, because we thought that at some point Macau would start to bottom out as the Chinese government’s anti-corruption program ran its course,” Kent said. “However, it now looks like a recovery will take longer.”

MGM Resort shares were at $19.68 at closing on Monday’s NYSE, which was up 1.08 percent. Las Vegas Sands closed 0.61 percent to finish the day at $50.66 and Wynn Resorts closed at $106.86 on the Nasdaq, 0.07 percent.

Steven Kent has served as an analysts with Goldman Sachs for over 25 years winning numerous awards throughout the years.

NV, DE Sign Internet Poker Compact, Social Mobile Gaming on the Rise

NV, DE Sign Internet Poker Compact, Social Mobile Gaming on the RiseLast month Govenors Sandoval (NV) and Markell (DE) signed an internet poker compact, it was the first of its kind as the agreement will allow poker players to compete in a combined pool between the two US States.

This is great news for the states as the shared player pool is sure to help benefit the continued success of the online poker sites within both states. Both Governors are hoping New Jersey as well as additional states will come on board with the compact in a concerted effort increase revenues for all states involved.

This week, just a short time after the compact was signed, Locaid has been selected as the Geolocation-based services for Delaware and Nevada. Promising the “largest device reach” in the industry, Locaid, was deemed compliant under the recent Multi State Internet Gaming Agreement.

In a recent press release, Rip Gerber, President and CEO, Locaid stated that his company will “mobile compliance technology that ultimately enabled the first interstate online poker deal in U.S. history.”  Gerbet believes that if New Jersey were to come along to join the pact that their location service will integrate seamlessly into the Garden State.

Locaid is the world’s largest LaaS (Location-as-a-Service) company, which operates “location in the cloud” and promises that it can determine the physical location of your customers, employees or assets, anywhere, instantly.

The Locaid Compliance API was specifically built to allow gaming operators to follow strict state regulatory requirements in both wagering and lottery offers via the internet and mobile channels.

As the states join together to hopefully sign more compact agreements, the popularity of online gaming continues with the growth of both mobile and social gaming. A recent study by yStats.com has discovered findings that players are continuing to move away from traditional gaming methods towards online gaming on mobile and social networks.

The global Social Gaming market is expected to reach a value of USD 17.40 billion by 2019, growing at a CAGR of 16.1% from 2013 to 2019. Growth in the usage of internet and social networking sites has spurred the growth of the games over the internet.
