Short summary

COVID-19 caused a surge of players joining gaming apps and platforms. This has caused the industry to grow at an incredible pace, with forecasts indicating growth of €140.05 billion from 2021-2026. 

Fraudsters can take advantage of this growing market as well. With a myriad of fraud schemes out there, such as bonus hunting, multi-accounting, account takeovers, and illegal chargebacks, fraud has become a real menace to both growing and established gaming platforms.
