According to the latest financial news about the Italian iGaming market, October wasn’t the most successful month for it.
The low performance of the sports wagering sector became the reason for decreased GGR of the online gaming market as a whole.

It is a 51.6 percent decline compared to 2020 and a 37 percent downturn from September. Poker tournaments, cash, and bingo games have contributed €8.4, 5.6, 4.9 million respectively.
