North American slot sales are expected to increase by 39 per cent to 55,900 units this year, assuming Covid vaccines are widely distributed, Todd Eilers of Eilers & Krejcik Gaming said.
Sales are expected to rise 27 per cent to 71,000 games next year due to both replacement and expansionary sales. Eilers estimates 400 table games will be added this year and 450 next year.
Slot sales fell 50 per cent to 11,200 games in the fourth quarter as replacement sales continued to be impacted by Covid. There were 25 table game sales in the quarter.
