Herec Daniel Krejk se objevil v serilu Ordinace v rov zahrad 2 a tak ve V. A new report from Eilers Research offers what I’d argue is the most sober and accurate projection to date for regulated i Gaming revenues in the United States. I’ve been arguing for quite some time that New Jersey’s official predictions for regulated online gambling revenue are more or less a work of fiction.
Here, Krejcik suggests three possible avenues for DFS expansion via television exposure: Prediction eight is as grounded (and inevitable) as nine is whimsical.
Much as the mid-2000s are thought of as the “glory days” for online poker players, when competition was soft and promotion values were high, Krejcik foresees 2013-2015 being “remembered as the hey-day for DFS from a player perspective due to large overlay opportunities and noticeable skill gap between “grinders” and “casual”” players.
i Gaming (Real) Opportunity” and authored by Eilers’ Adam Krejcik, provides a comprehensive survey of the state of US regulated online gambling and predicts the likely trajectory of the American i Gaming industry through 2020. But the Eilers report puts that canard to rest, asserting that: [W]e are staunch proponents that i Gaming will not cannibalize existing land-based casino operations, and in fact may drive an increase in land-based gaming revenues over the long-run as casino operators are able to tap into a younger customer demographic, improve player loyalty programs, and enhance their marketing campaigns.
The base case of Krejcik’s projections point to a total market size for US regulated online gambling of just under $2 billion by 2020: That projection represents a dramatic departure from other mainstream projections, including Morgan Stanley ($9 billion by 2020) and H2 Gambling Capital ($7.4 billion by 2017). The argument that online gambling revenue will come at the expense of land-based casino revenue is a popular one among opponents of regulation.
The consensus highlight of the 2015 FSTA Winter Conference was the keynote from Adam Krejcik of Eilers Research, who sparked no shortage of interest and discussion with his “14 Bold (Mostly Bullish) Predictions About The Future of DFS.” Before walking through the list, it’s important to first restate Krejcik’s caveat: these predictions do not represent “baseline expectations,” but rather “some possibilities over the next 3-5 years” with the expectation that “at least a few predictions come to fruition.” With that said, let’s survey Krejcik’s possible paths ahead for the daily fantasy sports market.
