EGBA Highlights Key Achievements And Latest Members Data In New Annual Activity Report



Reading Time: 2 minutes


The association publishes its Annual Activity Report for 2023, highlighting key achievements and the latest online gambling data from its members.

The European Gaming and Betting Association (EGBA), representing Europe’s leading online gaming and betting companies, has published its Annual Activity Report for 2023. From driving collaboration within the gambling sector to highlighting the latest online gambling data from its members, the report showcases EGBA’s efforts to raise industry standards and promote greater transparency in Europe’s gambling sector.

The Annual Activity Report 2023 showcases EGBA’s recent efforts to raise standards in areas such as anti-money laundering, safer gambling, and collaboration. Notable initiatives from EGBA in the past twelve months include its introduction of robust anti-money laundering guidelines for Europe’s online gambling sector, the association’s work towards the standardisation of markers of harm at European level, and its initiatives to foster collaboration within the sector on crucial topics such as cyber security.


The report also presents the latest aggregated data from the association’s members for their European online gambling operations in 2022,[1] including information about their combined gaming revenues, stakes, return to player rates, customer winnings, products, customer accounts, and licenses. The publication of the report underlines EGBA’s dedication to transparency and commitment to chart the progress of the operations and activities of its members.

The report reveals an 8% decrease in the combined online gross gaming revenues[2] of EGBA members to €10.7 billion in 2022. Additionally, for the first time, casino revenue surpassed sports betting, accounting for 48% of EGBA members’ online revenues.

“Over the past year, we have focused our efforts on raising industry standards and driving positive change within the sector. We are grateful for the trust and support of our members, who push progress forward and regularly demonstrate their commitment to being open and transparent, including by sharing their valuable industry data. The recent decrease in revenues could be attributed to a combination of factors, including the impact of the cost-of-living crisis on customer gambling habits and a streak of customer-friendly sports results.”­ – Maarten Haijer, Secretary General, EGBA.

iGB L!VE organisers have confirmed the five trailblazing start-up businesses who will be showcasing their ground-breaking ideas to a panel of industry entrepreneurs in the final of LaunchPad which is taking place in the Pulse Theatre 16:30 – 18:00 on 18 July. 

The visionary enterprises who will be pitching to the judging panel are Match Hype, Swap Profit, AMARIX, SavageTech GmbH and Lucky Lady Games.

Confirming the shortlist which was handpicked by the iGB L!VE team, Clarion Gaming’s Jamie Coles who is leading the exciting new initiative said: “These businesses will not only gain invaluable exposure, but they will also compete for substantial cash prizes and receive expert guidance from our judging panel of industry titans comprising Michael Caselli, Non-Executive Chairman – Clarion Events; David Sargeant, Investor, Advisor, Consultant – iGaming Ideas; Vladimir Malakchi, CEO and Managing Partner – Xanada Investments; Tony Pearce, CEO and co-founder – Reality+ and Justin Anastasi, CEO, VentureMax Group.


“We are also extremely grateful to Becky Liggero Fontana, Reporter, Producer and Host of Coingeek for agreeing to chair this first edition of LaunchPad @ iGB L!VE.”

He continued: “LaunchPad is not simply a competition; it’s a platform to showcase ground-breaking ideas, pitch to a panel of influential leaders, and secure the support required to take start-ups to the next level. Our vision is to discover those scalable solutions which have the potential to revolutionise the market.”

LaunchPad judge Michael Caselli who also serves as Non-Executive Chairman at Clarion Events highlighted iGB L!VE’s status as a hub for innovation in the industry. He explained: “With Launchpad we are highlighting the latest innovations in the industry and providing a formal platform for innovating businesses to attract the funding or partners they need to make their visions a reality. That is very much the ethos and the DNA of the show.

“We don’t see supporting entrepreneurs as a responsibility as much as a pillar of what we do and what we stand for. The core value of iGB L!VE is to bring all elements of the industry together to foster collaboration and partnerships in order to drive the iGaming industry forward. Supporting iGaming entrepreneurs is fundamental to that formula.”


Part Dragons Den part Shark Tank, LaunchPad has been curated to add to the onsite experience.
