In a recent survey, Money and Mental Health Policy Institute found that the percentage of Americans with an online gambling account has increased in recent years. While the number of online gambling accounts per person is still relatively low, it is expected to increase by 2020 to 3.2 million. The average age of online gamblers is 26. However, many people still gamble on a limited budget or don’t play very often. In addition, the problem with online gambling can affect your relationships and your finances.
While most online gambling occurs within the home, there have been some noticeable trends. While there is a large number of individuals who gamble on mobile devices, it has not changed the overall incidence of online gambling. In fact, one out of every five people who play online has gambled outside the home. This is higher among the 18-24 age group, which is more likely to spend time on their computers rather than with friends and family. If you are concerned about your child’s safety, you should consider a parent-guardian relationship before engaging in online gambling.
In the United States, the gambling statistics are quite impressive. In the third quarter of 2021, revenue was $901 million, which was 15% higher than in the first quarter. The same goes for the first half of this year. The market for online gambling is expected to reach $100 billion by 2026. It is estimated that 96% of internet users prefer playing from home compared to 2% in 2011. It is also important to note that younger people are more likely to engage in online gambling.
