Gambling Round the Globe 20.01.2013

Roulette News

It should be no surprise that the US is the number one gambling country in the world and in just 2012 the industry pulled in about $105 billion despite the fact that internet gambling is banned in all but 2 states. However, the US may not be able to hold the first place position much longer as Macau is quickly becoming the go-to high stakes destination for many players instead of Las Vegas.

When it comes to internet gambling the US is far behind many other countries. Only 3.3% of US gambling revenues came from online casinos, all of which are currently only licensed to offer games in Nevada. In contrast to this, approximately 21% of the gambling revenues in the UK come from internet casinos and roulette is the most popular game played. In fact, it is played so often that it is estimated that British men who gamble will spend a total of 14 months of their lives betting online.

Many European countries are in the process of changing internet gambling laws and it has paid off especially for the Nordic countries. Although Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Iceland have a combined population of only 20.9 million, gambling revenues totaled $8.5 billion and more than 30% of that money came from online gambling.

China’s 2012 gambling revenue totaled around $50 billion dollars which all came from land-based casinos in Macau since the country still has a ban on internet gambling. China is definitely missing out on huge potential internet revenues but no country loses more than Australia. It is estimated that the average adult from “down under” will lose nearly $1300 per year gambling online and at the casino.
