Analyst Opinion

The Online Gambling market in Philippines has been growing rapidly in recent years, driven by changing customer preferences, global trends, and local special circumstances.

Customer preferences:
Customers in Philippines have shown a strong preference for online gambling due to its convenience and accessibility. Online gambling allows players to participate in various games and place bets from the comfort of their own homes, eliminating the need to travel to physical casinos. Additionally, the availability of mobile gambling apps has further increased the popularity of online gambling, as players can now enjoy their favorite games on the go.

Trends in the market:
One of the key trends in the online gambling market in Philippines is the increasing popularity of live dealer games. Live dealer games provide a more immersive and interactive experience for players, as they can interact with real dealers and other players in real-time. This trend is driven by advancements in technology and the growing demand for a more authentic casino experience. Another trend in the market is the rise of eSports betting. eSports, or competitive video gaming, has gained immense popularity worldwide, and Philippines is no exception. As a result, online gambling platforms have started offering betting options on eSports tournaments, attracting a new segment of customers who are passionate about gaming.

Gambling has long been a popular form of entertainment in Philippines, and the legalization of online gambling has provided a new avenue for players to indulge in their favorite pastime. Additionally, the government's support for the online gambling industry has played a significant role in its growth. The Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) regulates and licenses online gambling operators in the country, ensuring a safe and secure environment for players. This regulatory framework has helped to build trust and confidence among customers, further fueling the growth of the market.

Several macroeconomic factors have contributed to the development of the online gambling market in Philippines. The country's growing middle class and increasing disposable income have created a larger customer base for online gambling operators. Additionally, the widespread use of smartphones and internet connectivity has made it easier for people to access online gambling platforms. Furthermore, the tourism industry in Philippines has also played a role in the growth of the online gambling market. The country attracts a significant number of tourists, many of whom are interested in gambling. By offering online gambling services, operators can cater to both local and international customers, expanding their reach and driving revenue growth. In conclusion, the online gambling market in Philippines is experiencing significant growth due to changing customer preferences, global trends, local special circumstances, and underlying macroeconomic factors. The convenience and accessibility of online gambling, along with the popularity of live dealer games and eSports betting, have contributed to its rapid development.

Modeling approach / Market size:

Market sizes are determined through a bottom-up approach, building on predefined factors for each market segment. As a basis for evaluating markets, we use annual financial reports of the market-leading companies, third-party studies, and reports, as well as survey results from our primary research (e.g., the Statista Global Consumer Survey). In addition, we use relevant key market indicators and data from country-specific associations, such as GDP, GDP per capita, and internet connection speed. This data helps us estimate the market size for each country individually.


In our forecasts, we apply diverse forecasting techniques. The selection of forecasting techniques is based on the behavior of the relevant market. For example, the S-curve function and exponential trend smoothing. The main drivers are internet users, the urban population, the usage of key players, and attitudes toward online services.

Additional notes:

The market is updated twice a year in case market dynamics change. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine war are considered at a country-specific level. GCS data is reweighted for representativeness.
