The online gambling industry contributed £50m to the Bailiwick of Guernsey's economy in 2009, according to a new report.
A study by accountants KPMG has revealed that the figure has risen from about £7m in 2007.
The report predicts further growth of more than 40% over the next two years.
Carla McNulty-Bauer, Guernsey's Commerce and Employment minister, said the industry extended the range of jobs available for the local workforce.
