GAME Greece is set to take off in a month of time in Athens, taking place from 19 - 20 October 2023. The event comes as the Greek iGaming market is on a trajectory of expansion, with a projected value set to reach $1.28 billion (€1.2 billion) by the year 2025.
This growth is underpinned by a striking Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 14%. Tasos Belesis, Senior Consultant in Lotteries & Gambling and a speaker at GAME Greece, has reported a surge in Gross Gaming Revenue (GGR) of over 26% from 2021 to 2022, with further growth anticipated in 2023.
Additionally, the surge in mobile gaming is undeniable, with 60% of Greek iGaming enthusiasts now favoring mobile devices to access iGaming products and services, underscoring the growing popularity of mobile in the country.
The Greek iGaming market, legalized by Law 4726/2020 in July 2021, offers significant opportunities for businesses "that prioritize innovation and responsible gaming," say GAME Greece organizers.
