According to this, 145 million Americans played a casual game in 2007, or roughly two thirds of all US citizens in the 12-65 age range. While casual game revenue is obviously a lot lower than that taken from discs – most casual games are free and played online – that piece estimates that $400 to $700 million will be made per annum by 2010.
