Italian-licensed operators generated a record monthly high of €258.9m in igaming revenues last month, and out of that amount, €123.6m was from online casino.

The total represents the first time the dot.it market has generated a monthly return of more than €250m .

According to figures supplied by Ficom Leisure to iGB, Flutter Entertainment-owned PokerStars retained its market share lead in the casino vertical, its 11.31% take of the €123.6m total leaving it 2pps clear of nearest rival Sisal.

Stars also benefited from an increase in online poker activity in November under the lockdown imposed by Italian authorities to curtail the spread of the novel coronavirus.

Poker tournament revenues increased by nearly 43% month-over-month to €11.22m and ring game revenues by close to 35% to €7.21m. Stars had a 55% market share of tournament and 44% share of cash game GGR in November.
