Online gambling is currently one of the fastest growing industries around the world. Every day more and more people join the scene to partake in online gaming activities.
Recently, figures reported that online gambling has increased by 40% in the last 12 months in the UK. The figure is staggering but online casino have reported to have welcomed an additional 3.2 million British players.
In case you did not understand how big this is let me tell you that sites like Facebook have got an etra 2.2 million users in Britain. Online gaming can now be declared the most appealing hobby in the UK. Actually, the activity with the biggest growth was online poker, followed by online casinos. The report also showed that 46% of the new players are female.
I think it makes perfect sense that growth has been mind-blowing in this sector of the economy as online gaming is one of the most enjoyable, entertaining and comfortable activities out there. Hopefully the figures will have a positive effect on EU online gaming legislation.
