GBGC: Which Country Gambles the Mosth

Posted

LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The latest figures compiled by the Global Betting and Gaming Consultants

show that Australia is by far the biggest gambling nation on the planet

with a per capita spend of US$866 a year. British operators Paddy Power,

William Hill, Ladbrokes and Bet 365 have all been quick to recognise the

potential and have licensed their business in Australia to take sports

bets. Forty six percent of Paddy Power's group operating profits come

from customers based in Australia.

But the real gambling spend for Australia comes not from internet but

the widespread distribution of pokie machines (50%) played by locals and

then also casinos (20%) that host Chinese gamblers.

Hong Kong Jockey Club are in second place even sabung ayam though many residents are

going to Macau to gamble in the casinos.

Canada comes in third with strong gambler support for casino, gaming

machines and lotteries. Ontario is the lead state almost double in terms

of gross gaming yield in front of Quebec.

Italy has growth in stature as a gambling market with the growth of

various slot machines through deregulation as the Italian Government has

sought to gain a higher tax yield from gambling.

The United Kingdom has dropped to tenth from third in 2008. "This is

because other countries have decided not to criminalise the gambler and

bring forth legislation to legalise gambling. However we expect the UK

to rise in the ranking next year when we will see a full year of on

shore licensing for internet gambling which was previously allocated off

shore, mostly in Gibraltar, Isle of Man and Malta" said Warwick Bartlett

Chief Executive of GBGC.



All of the top ten listed are prosperous countries which destroy the

myth that the poor gamble most. "You can sabung ayam online only lose what you have in your

pocket, and gambling is not a priority for poor people, it is

essentially a judi sabung ayam luxury purchase when all essentials have been paid for"

says Warwick Bartlett, GBGC's CEO.

GGY = Gross Gaming Yield (what the customer actually loses gambling)

Singapore and Macau have been left out of the calculations because the

high gross gaming yields are predominantly created by tourists from

China and the rest of Asia.
