    Default Britain sees major jump in online gambling

    According to market research group Nielsen, Great Britain has seen a 40 percent rise in Internet gambling in the past year.

    Some of the other facts and figures from the Nielson report are interesting to say the least.

    From the Herald Sun:

    An additional 3.2 million people logged on to gambling websites last year, compared with only 2.2 million more who accessed social networking sites such as Facebook and its near-rivals, said market research group Nielsen.

    Online poker sites were particularly successful. Partypoker.com pulled in an extra 870,000 visitors last year, increasing its audience by 174 percent. Partycasino.com, a smaller site, grew by 360 percent last year.

    Nielsen said almost half of all online gamblers earn more than 30,000 ($49,717).

    Women comprise 46 per cent of online gamblers - many of the estimated 2000 gambling websites employ "female friendly" pink color schemes and other gimmicks thought to appeal to women, such as gambling horoscopes.

    Drinking and gambling are always the last things people give up in a recession.

    40% is a surprising rise, hopefully it is a sign of a big upswing for the industry as a whole.

    I wonder if this correlates to a general rise in the acceptance of online business and participation in online economies in general.

    Interesting, as Online Gambling Revenues increase affiliate earnings decrease. Maybe directly proportional to one another. All this during one of worst recessions of the century. Clap, clap for the affiliates WTG make them richer.

    And then take India

    this tallies up to $ 5 Billion market size for online gambling in India.

    source
    Only a estimate as of Jan 2010. I wonder the market size of China, let's guess 20 billion lol.

    Woe! And some affs are having problems making ends meet, does this sound right or I am oblivious to everything around me LMAO.

    Perhaps you need to expand your comfort zone.

    People tend to stick to the promise of easy money promotion especially when they're faced with scarcity, gambling is one way. Thus, they try to take chances whatsoever and make use of their luck making the industry more properous.

    Well, its good for the Britain online gambling revenue. The more gamblers, the more tax revenues they can get from the online casinos.
