Social Casino Gaming Continues To Grow

By Brian Cullingworth, Last updated Sep 16, 2016

Newzoo study shows that in the USA alone there are 73.9 million social casino gamers

The independent research group Newzoo has started promoting its latest survey on social casino gaming, noting that in the US alone, there are 73.9 million social casino gamers… and more than half of these spend money.
In a teaser on the content of its report, Newzoo claims that social casino titles made up one quarter of the Top 20 Grossing Games on iOS in the US in July.
The report covers recent casino gamer research, and provides an in-depth look at the players of casino, slots, bingo/slingo, blackjack, and poker franchises across three of the biggest social casino markets: US, UK, and Australia. For example, in the latter country 2.4 million Aussies play social casino games, most aged 36-50 and recruited via social media.

Brian Cullingworth

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
