This article is a part of the Poker Room series.

Do you feel like the house always wins or that the rake is too high? If so, you could actually be the house by investing in E-gaming / gambling stocks. I have put together a list of all the companies related to gambling and listed on stock exchanges around the world.

Company Name – Gambling Brands

Party Gaming: Party Poker, Empire Poker, Gamebookers and other brands.

Ladbrokes: Ladbrokes.

Bet-at-home: Bet-at-home.

As a whole the online gambling business is expected to double its total revenue over the next 5-6 years (source: Global Betting and Gaming Consultants), but there are some very large uncertainties to consider before investing. Just remember how the US marked closed almost from one day to the other, with the result that many stocks lost up to 60 percent of their value. This could happen in some European countries too. But the key is, as with all investments; keep your portfolio diversified to minimize your overall risk.

I follow the stock market quite a bit, although I tend to invest in energy companies rather than gaming stocks. I did however do well with Playtech, it’s seen great growth over the past year and I believe is set to continue further still. One to watch.

If I was wanting to invest in a riskier share at the moment, I like the look of William Hill. Share price dropped a lot over the past few years but with a new man at the helm wanting to re-focus their online gaming and betting products, starting with betting this year, this stock could make quick gains.

I have looked a bit at bet-at-home. Trading currently at €10.71 per share compared to a €18 high the last 52 weeks.
The company has quite a lot of customers, 800.000 according to their website. They have just recently decided to offer poker, so should lift the revenue quite a bit.

But I must admit this is just my intuition, I have not looked very much at the annual reports.
