Market Opportunity


The casino and gambling market has been steadily increasing with the expansion of online/virtual gambling as well as the increasing legality of gambling in and out of the United States. According to IBISWorld, industry revenue for casinos and online/virtual gambling is expected to increase by 3.5% to $318.7 billion over the five years to 2024. Furthermore, as gaming expenditure increases by an annualized rate of 3.1%, the market will also expand by an annualized rate of 2.6% as more gaming enterprises are established.


These factors point to the steady growth of the casino and gambling industry and as a result, the spread and appeal of table games. According to IBISWorld, gaming tables are the major product offered by the industry with 35% dedicated to this segment alone. This segment is estimated to make up 15.8% of industry revenue in 2019 and includes games such as baccarat, Pai Gow and poker. A system, like Pai Bacc, that displays and tracks relevant playing data is invaluable to an effective experience.
