5 Biggest Gambling Countries In The World

2. China

Total Gambling Gross Win: $70 Billion 

China, with a population of 1.4 billion and an area of 3,700,000 sq miles, is one of the biggest gambling countries in the world. The online gambling market size reached $9.2 billion in 2021 and it is expected to reach $14.7 billion by 2027. Even though China falls in the top five leading gambling markets of the world, the government does not allow gambling, which is considered illegal. However, games such as Mahjong, card games, and online games, all of which involve gambling of some kind, have achieved immense significance in the local culture.
