In addition to its consultancy GBGC has produced four reviews of the global gambling market that have been widely acknowledged to be the best available both in terms of both their detail and accuracy. The latest review published October 2008 extends to over 1000 pages.

The statistics and forecasts that are contained within the Global Gambling Report have become widely recognised, within the industry, the financial community and the Media, as the industry standard for sizing both the online and offline gambling markets.

GBGCs personnel spend all of their time looking at the gambling market. As a result they have a much more in depth understanding of the key issues and the direction that market

GBGCs combination of operational and financial experience combined with our gambling industry focus, our extensive network of contacts and that fact that we are regarded as an independent commentator on the industry means that we are able to scratch the surface and get to the bottom of issues which can sometimes be clouded by data alone.

With an international focus GBGC are able to offer clients an additional perspective gained from researching markets, working on projects and attending/speaking at conferences around the world. As a result in this instance we would be able to offer knowledge of the European, Australian North & South American and Asian gambling markets.
