The latest Eilers-Fantini Online Game Performance Data Insight Report has shown that SG Digital, IGT, and Evolution outstripped rivals to lead the North American game-rank charts through the final six months of 2021.
This game-rank history aggregates data across monthly reports to give an overall average rank, as well as the number of times that 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 and 33 per cent of the time, respectively. Evolution drops to 13 per cent when looking at the top 25.
Meanwhile, 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.
When it comes to focusing on slots, Evolution’s Bonanza and Extra Chilli iGaming titles sandwich SG’s 88 Fortunes offering at the top of the charts. Each of those has spent all of the past six months occupying spots in the top five.
Through the first six months of performance data collection across the U.S. online casino market, slots accounted for 70.4 per cent of estimated gross gaming revenue (GGR), ahead of table games’ 16.0 per cent. These were followed by live casino’s 8.1 per cent, instant win’s 3.4 per cent, and video poker at 2.1 per cent.
The ranking compares the per cent of total games, or positions, against the per cent of total theoretical revenue generated from those games. A positive share is when the per cent of total theoretical revenue generated exceeds the per cent of total games, while a negative fair share is the inverse.
In the latest rankings, slots and instant win resulted in negative shares due to boasting total games tracked of 84.9 percent (theo win 70.4 per cent) and 4.8 per cent (theo win 3.4 per cent), respectively.
The report also looked at blackjack and found that RNG blackjack accounts for just 17.3 per cent of total blackjack win, while roulette comes in at 59.6 per cent. Evolution’s Live Dealer Roulette currently leads that segment, while IGT’s Blackjack is top in the RNG standings.
