The net gaming market in the UK has doubled in five years, with in excess of one million gamblers commonly wagering by using the internet. According to research executed by the Department of Culture, Media and Sport, United Kingdom bettors make up around one-third of Europe’s estimated total of 3 300 000 net gamblers.

The average sum spent by each gamer is estimated at one thousand pounds, with the European business now worth £3 500 000 000 annually.

Among the seventy online gambling web sites in the UK, few are gaming websites promoting card games like poker and chemin de fer. A majority of the world’s 2,000 web gambling sites are located in places with questionable internet wagering rules. Antigua and Costa Rica account for more than one thousand sites between them.

The Gov’t in the UK is hoping to introduce practices and a tax setup to streamline the functioning of the internet gambling sector. With such laws in place, web gambling activities would be monitored and the industry can hope to achieve even greater penetration in the near future.
