USA Casinos Raked In Record-Shattering $60 Billion In Revenue Last Year

Forbes report

Commercial gaming revenue in the U.S. topped $60 billion last year for the first time ever, according to a new report from the American Gaming Association, driven by a modest rise in slot and table gaming revenue along with an explosion in sports betting that topped 2021’s record of $53 billion.

Slot machines were far and away the biggest moneymaker, raking in over half of the total revenue—$34.2 billion, a 5.1% increase from 2021.

Table games came second with $10 billion in revenue—a 13.9% rise from 2021—but sports betting is closing in quickly on the traditional casino plays.

Sports betting generated $7.5 billion in revenue during 2022—a whopping 72.7% increase from a year earlier—after gamblers wagered a combined $93.2 billion on sporting events throughout the year.
