Dover, DE, July 01, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fifth Third Bank and Fantini Research released the inaugural edition of the quarterly Distributed Gaming Report, the first and only report that provides data and analysis on this growing gaming phenomenon.

The report is a proprietary source of insight for investors and gaming executives on  distributed gaming, outlining operations in the seven states with substantial regulated markets.

Fifth-Third and Fantini publish the report at a time when information on distributed gaming is more actionable and relevant than ever, as the growing phenomenon has reached more than 30,000 slots machines in Illinois, was recently legalized in Pennsylvania and as public companies like Penn National, Boyd Gaming and Golden Entertainment have become slot route operators.

            Among the information provided in the report:

            • Revenues, number of machines and locations in various states.

            • Information on publicly-listed operators.

            • The latest legislation related to distributed gaming and potential expansion analysis.

            • In-depth data on operations in Illinois including estimated EBITDA by operator.

The report can be purchased for special inaugural rates of just $1,000 for the opening edition or $2,000 for the first full year subscription. In addition to the quarterly report, a deep-dive look at Illinois is available monthly. A package of both the quarterly and monthly Illinois data is available for just $2,500 annually.

Subscription inquiries can be directed to Fantini Research Marketing Specialist Alex Capitle at or at 302-730-3793.
