Asia-Pacific online gaming to grow at 15.7% a year

US legislation that curtails online gaming will have international repercussions. In EMEA, new licenses and increases in wagering from mobile phones will propel online and mobile gaming. Asia Pacific will expand by 15.7% CAGR, from $14.6 bln in 2006 to $30.3 bln in 2011, passing EMEA in 2011 to become the second largest region. In Latin America, new casinos and rising disposable income will drive casino gaming revenue. In Canada, a new sports betting venue will attract US visitors and boost sports betting revenues, PriceWaterhouseCooper said.
