Although most online gamblers are based at home, one in five have wagered on wagers outside of their homes, according to online gambling statistics. These numbers are similar to last year, when one in five had wagered outside the home. The numbers are even higher among younger people (18-24 years old). In the United States, the market is worth around $300 million. Canada has the most liberal gambling laws and the incidence is expected to continue rising.
A survey conducted by the Annenberg Adolescent Communication Institute shows that nearly half of American adults report using their mobile phones to engage in online gambling. In addition, more than 400,000 males age twelve to seventeen report gambling on the internet every week. More than one million American youths (ages 18-34) are active online gamblers. Regardless of age, these numbers may be surprising, especially in the context of the growing popularity of online gambling.
The US is among the most popular gambling destinations in the world. The United States spends more than any other country. In a 2016 study, a majority of adult men spent a total of $1000 on online gambling. The UK was the least popular for gambling with an average of just under half of its population. By contrast, young adults are less likely to engage in gambling. Whether an individual participates in online gambling is entirely up to them.
