SG Digital, IGT, and Evolution have led the North American game rank charts through the final six months of 2021, according to the latest ‘Eilers-Fantini Online Game Performance Data Insight Report’.
On a slots basis, Evolution’s Bonanza and Extra Chilli igaming titles sandwich SG’s 88 Fortunes offering at the summit, each of which have spent all of the past six months occupying spots in the top five.
This game rank history aggregates data across monthly reports to showcase an overall and average rank, as well as number of times each game and supplier was represented in the group’s charts.
Evolution and SG Digital dominate the top five rank history with games featuring 40 per cent of 33 per cent of the time, respectively, however, the former slips to 13 per cent when looking at the top 25. IGT overtook the group with 23 per cent to finish ahead of SG’s 22 per cent.
The table games ranking is dominated by IGT, which lists two of the top three titles in Blackjack and multihand Blackjack and featured 60 per cent of games in the top five. Evolution, which slotted in behind with 27 per cent, rounded off the top three with Blackjack Surrender.
Through the first six months of performance data collection across the US online casino market, it is observed that slots accounted for 70.4 per cent of the estimated gross gaming revenue, ahead of table games’ 16.0 per cent.
This is ahead of live casino’s 8.1 per cent, instant win’s 3.4 per cent, the 2.1 per cent of video poker, and nominal percentage rates of video poker, bingo/keno, and lottery.
The OGPD dashboard uses a fair share analysis in its inspection, which compares the percent of total games, or positions, against the percent of total theoretical revenue generated from those games.
“A positive fair share is when the percent of total theoretical revenue generated exceeds the percent of total games, while a negative fair share is the inverse,” it is stated.
Slots and instant win are reported as coming out as negative due to boasting total games tracked of 84.9 per cent (theo win 70.4 per cent) and 4.8 per cent (theo win 3.4 per cent), respectively.
One further focus on the report was an analysis of RNG blackjack and roulette to its live casino counterparts, with data points showing that the former only accounts for 17.3 per cent per cent of total blackjack win while roulette comes in at 59.6 per cent.
It is Evolution’s Live Dealer Roulette that currently leads that segment, while IGT’s Blackjack (RNG) forges ahead in those standings.
The goal of these quarterly insights is to provide additional insights in the North American online casino market from the ‘Online Game Performance Database’ reports that are published, and reported by CasinoBeats, on a monthly basis.
This latest analysis examined data from 26 online casino sites, across Connecticut, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and West Virginia, and grew to track 25,079 games to represent 57 per cent of the market.
An overall ambition is to grow the database in a similar fashion to its land-based game performance database, which currently tracks approximately 270,000 slots, or 27 per cent of the North American market.
