Over 2020 online brands floated as PLCs on the world’s numerous stock markets have seen their share prices skyrocket. With more people forced to stay at home, online entertainment brands are seeing marked increases in traffic, subscriptions, and ad clicks.

Netflix, AMD, Google, and Microsoft all reported rises in stock prices. However, investing in the obvious is not always the best way to make the best out of your portfolio.

Today, if you look around the stock markets, you will find numerous iGaming and sports betting platform providers floated on the London Stock Exchange, the NASDAQ, and other stock markets.

UK companies like Playtech PLC, Kindred PLC, and Entain PLC (formerly GVC Holdings) are providing betting and casino companies with the platforms they need to bring online sportsbooks and casinos online to players’ mobile and desktop devices. Every year more operators are coming online using these aggregator services while UK iGaming and sports betting PLCs are moving their platforms into new markets.

Entering the World’s Super Emerging Economies

This is where the new rise in stock prices is happening right now! Why? Because BRICS economies such as Brazil, India, and South Africa are coming online, and with it an army of people that want to play casino games such as slots, blackjack, and roulette.

This is not to mention live table games like Andar Bahar and Teen Patti which are immensely popular not only in India but in countries like South Africa where there are over 1.3 million Indians! Then there is sports betting in these countries too. You can see that Africa is the next big emerging economy with countries like Nigeria seeing a rise in sports betting.

Some of the largest iGaming companies to provide the casino platforms that residents of India, South Africa, and Brazil and other emerging economies play at are running casino and sports betting aggregator platforms provided by UK PLCs!

Diversify your Portfolio into iGaming Stocks!

Stocks more likely to increase and even double over the next 10 years are those with market trends that are rising. Right now, that is the iGaming and sports betting industries!

Now, take a step back and think about iGaming and sport betting. It may not be rising as quickly as it was in the UK and across Europe, but it is still rising. In the UK, some of the most successful sports, casino, and lotto providers are Playtech, Entain (GVC Holdings), and Kindred.

These casinos and sports betting platforms and websites are breaking records every year within fully regulated markets, while the casinos using their platforms are reaching out into unregulated markets where there is no official casino regulator to manage online casinos, and the casinos can do this via an MGA license or Curacao Antillephone N.V.
