Online gambling wagers to eclipse $1 trillion by 2022

New data from Juniper Research has found that a combination of increased uptake in digital products, coupled with new, positive regulation, will drive a surge in online gambling wagers. They will reach a total of $1 trillion globally in 2022, more than the annual deficit being added to U.S. national debt. Total online wagers are expected to reach $700 billion this year, up from just over $620 billion in 2017.
