I put this thread up in the table games forum just over a month ago, but got no replies. I may have chosen the wrong forum for it, so i'll risk a slap on the wrist from the mods for posting duplicate threads by posting it here.

If this one doesn't get any replies, I promise to leave it be.

I'm looking for data and stats on table games, e.g number of installs for specific games. Worldwide, not just the U.S. So far my google searches have been laborious and inconclusive.

A one stop shop website for this data would be perfect, if one exists. If not, any useful links would be appreciated.

I usually call the distributor, it's the only
way to find out.

Pretty sure UNLV has a program that does this type of research. You may consider reaching out to someone associated with the Gaming school and they may be able to direct you to the research data bank

Hell no, I usually pretend I work at a casino.
Even that won't work sometimes.

I saw a website once that told me the approximate number of BJ tables in the US. H17 was about 2x more common than S17...excluding AC, it was much more popular.

Look at Missouri Gaming Table game data.

Then Google for Nevada and New Jersey data also.

This'll give you the table game ratios and breakouts for the most popular table games and their specific penetration/prevalence.

I'm putting together a business plan as part of a grant application, so I need data to support the market analysis, sales projections etc.

There may be some slack in your numbers no matter what you do.

Most jurisdictions if they report anything report games authorized to a casino, not necessarily installed and operating.

Yeah doesn't have to be 100% exact. Projections are, by definition, just that...projections. I just need some kind of data to go on.
