Returning to the numbers, studies show that gaming sectors, such as online casinos, had an increase in revenue of approximately 24% in 2020, compared to the previous year. Famous companies in the industry, such as Flutter Entertainment, released positive numbers in the interval when the pandemic caused major disruptions worldwide. During this period, the group's revenues increased by around 15% in the United Kingdom.
 
The most surprising figures came from the Stars Group, the company that owns the famous Pokerstars brand. Its revenue grew more than 40% in this year-long period of the pandemic.
 
These growths have created alerts in some countries, and governments are already taking steps to ensure the security and control of the platforms that offer these services to their population. In Portugal, for example, Parliament wants the government to create restrictions, so that people in its territory are protected against the dangers of that market.
