The casino management systems market is driven by the expanding global footprint of the casinos. The market has been experiencing a significant growth in regions of the Asia-Pacific and Europe, with governments accepting the gambling and gaming practices in the regions on account of levying heavy tax regulations, which can contribute considerably to the growth of the economy of the country. The reliance on tourism for a major part of the economy for the developing regions has given the casinos a major boost, with governments permitting casinos to set up shops to attract a large crowd from across the borders and result in a positive scenario for both the casinos and government, as they evolve to reap benefits of the mutual acceptance. On the contrary, the rise of online gaming and casinos has hindered the growth of the market, as it tends to appeal to the people to experience the gambling and casino experience from the comfort of their homes.

Concentration of large casinos and accompanying ancillary facilities in a single location have become primary tourist attractions in their own right, such as Las Vegas and Macau to name a few.
