L’Autorité Nationale des Jeux (ANJ) has reported record gross gaming revenue (GGR) for the year 2022 of €12.9bn (£11.19bn/$13.86bn), along with posting record online sports betting GGR.

ANJ said much of the GGR was driven by France’s monopoly holders, the National Lottery operator Française des Jeux (FDJ) and Pari-Mutuel Urbain (PMU).

Together, the monopolies generated €8.2bn in 2022 – 64% of the total GGR.

ANJ said this was helped by the reopening of venues in 2022 due to the end of Covid-19 restrictions.

“These activities show a remarkable level of overall growth compared to last year, benefiting from an environment that has normalised – reopening of almost all points of sale since June,” said the regulator.

Lottery, meanwhile, generated €5.6bn in 2022, representing a 10.2% rise in revenue from 2021.

For casinos, GGR was €2.5bn during the year, up from €1.08bn in 2021 and just edging up on €2.4bn brought in pre-pandemic, in 2019.

France’s online gaming market GGR increased by 0.8% to €2.18bn, of which 64% was from sports betting, 20% was from online poker and 16% came from bets placed on horse racing.

For online sports betting, ANJ said the GGR hit €1.38bn, another record. Stakes of €8.3% here also represented another record.

Online poker performed best for all online games in 2022 in terms of GGR, hitting €442m – up from €421m in 2021.
