Bright International Future for Online and Mobile Gambling

Juniper Research has conducted a new study that indicates that almost 50 percent of UK and Italian adults will engage in mobile or online gambling by 2019 and at least one in ten adults across the globe will have experimented by that time.

Juniper’s researchers say that the rise could be a result of the migration of lottery products to mobile channels and additional markets opening up including those in Europe and the United States.

Operators are complying with online gambling laws in the EU and US and there have been withdrawals from certain markets.

“Playtech and Mansion both pulled out of Germany earlier this year, while the new tax rates on sports betting in Portugal have led to William Hill exiting that market," researcher Dr. Windsor Holden said.

“The introduction of prohibitive taxation rates will simply lead to an exodus of major players with customers switching to unlicensed operators.”

    I'm not surprised by this statistics and honestly you don't have to be genius to guess that the future in front of the online gambling worldwide is very bright. With the development of all technologies will be easier and easier for the players to reach the online gambling places but in many countries the gambling authorities and the laws are not too adequate to the new reality.

    The market researcher, Dr. Windsor Holden, he said a real mouthful when he said that those big bad taxes are going to run off big names in online gambling, trustworthy companies. That leaves players no choice but to play at unlicensed operator sites. Why do they bite off their nose to spite their face. The research says it all, doesn't it. Even if the research is half true, there will be so many online players that changes will come......

    Let people have some free time or be on the train, f.e. and they will play games and gamble, of course, even people from Germany which are not that of gambler but the free time do the rest. Playing online games and gambling is just a part of modern live and people are learning to love it.

    This is not surprising at all, in my opinion. There are many reasons why people gamble. Some do it for fun, some do it to relax after a hard day at work, but some people just want to win and play to earn their income. I believe that most people will try gambling at least with a no deposit bonus because it is kind of adventure, a way to get adrenaline. Besides, people are so diferent and so is the gambling kind- there are sports, poker, casino, live casino, lottery, bingo etc that I believe every person could find something that excites us, so this study saying that at least 1 person out of 10 in the world will have tried gambling makes complete sense and there's nothing wrong with that.
