The big winners of this confinement?
After 45 days of confinement, online casinos have seen an increase in their frequentation.
In the misfortune of others, some find their happiness there, this is the case of online gambling operators such as casino games (slot machines, poker, blackjack etc.) who benefit from this confinement in this year 2020.
The world of gambling divided :
The bookmakers (sports betting) undergo this period, with a drop in their activity HISTORICAL because of the cessation of almost all sports competitions.
In fact, during the month of April, predictors could only bet on the Belarusian Football Championship. This has cooled down more than one of them. Betting on this little known type of championship is like playing roulette.
Unibet or Winamax have done everything to limit the damage with promotions always more attractive for the players but nothing can be done about it, sports betting fans and especially football fans don’t have the head to play anymore.
A glimmer of hope appears:
With the scheduled resumption of the German championship on the weekend of 16 May and the ongoing talks in other countries, bookmakers will be able to resume (almost) normal activity.
As for the online casinos, they would almost like the confinement to continue, so exceptional are the figures. The expansion of online casino gambling was already under way well before the confinement, but the financial results expected for 2020 will be revised upwards.
A record year in prospect.
Fewer players in bookmakers, more players in casinos.
An obvious correlation, sports bettors and poker / blackjack / slot machine players have a passion in common: gambling. Yes, a prognosis, by definition, has an important part of chance, otherwise everyone would live from sports betting.
We can therefore imagine that bettors have rushed to French-speaking online gambling operators to get their dose of excitement. One thing is certain, this indirect publicity stunt created by COVID-19 will benefit every French-speaking casino in the long term thanks to the thousands of new registered customers who will be able to come back to play from time to time on the gaming platforms thanks to the promotional e-mails that are always more advantageous for the players. (Free spins without wager, deposit bonus, free bet etc…)
For our part, the My Casino Bookmakers team hopes you are doing well.
