In recent years, television has been flooded with a new wave of advertisers – gambling and betting services. As states ease restrictions on sports betting and online wagering, the small screen has become a battleground where virtual casinos and sportsbooks vie for viewers’ attention. Our interest at Emysound is in understanding these trends through our detailed analytics services—we monitor the ebbs and flows of advertising, giving us a unique perspective on the industry. According to our analysis covering January 1 to January 25, 2024, FanDuel has surged ahead in the race for advertising dominance with an impressive 39,738 TV spot airings. Their commitment to securing the spotlight is unmatched, leaving competitors to jostle in their wake. BetMGM trails with 13,025 airings, while Golden Nugget Casino has managed 5,548, placing them third in the game of visibility.
