Italy is among the most prominent countries when it comes to gambling – both traditional gambling and online casinos. Also, the fact that it is home to Serie A, one of the best soccer leagues in the world, makes it a sports betting hub.
While it has a rich history in traditional gambling that can be traced back to the Roman Empire, online gambling is now dominant. From the latest data, the Italian gambling industry was worth €19 billion in 2017. Two years later, the figure could be at around €25 billion or even higher.
