Newton, MA, Feb. 19, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Casino City Press has just announced the release of the 2015 edition of Casino City's iGaming Business Directory, a one-of-a-kind reference work providing the world's most comprehensive coverage of virtually every aspect of the online gaming industry.
And for the second-straight year, the UK National Lottery website is the world's most popular gaming-related website in terms of traffic. bet365 Sportsbook & Racebook, Ladbrokes Sportsbook & Racebook, Fan Duel and Betfair Sportsbook & Racebook round out the top five.
It's the first time Fan Duel, the market leader in the rapidly growing daily fantasy sports sector, has cracked the top-five sites. DraftKings, Fan Duel's top competitor, is 12th in this year's rankings.
While sports betting sites normally do well in terms of traffic, the 2014 World Cup brought a surge of new customers to sports betting sites, and the sportsbooks were able to hold on to some of that traffic.
The UK National Lottery website is the only online gaming site in the top 10 that isn't related to sports.
888 Casino, Casino.com and bet365 Casino are the top-ranked online casinos when measured by website traffic.
Casino City's iGaming Business Directory describes more than 3,000 iGaming sites in detail and ranks the top websites overall by traffic and the top sites in each sector. The directory also ranks the top software providers, payment providers, jurisdictions and affiliates.
