The web gaming industry in the United Kingdom has doubled in 5 years, with in excess of one million bettors commonly gambling over the net. According to research carried out by the Dept. of Culture, Media and Sport, United Kingdom gamblers make up about one-third of the Old World’s approximated total of 3 300 000 online gamblers.

The average cash amount wagered by each punter is estimated at one thousand pounds, with the European business now worth three point five billion pounds each year.

Amidst the seventy internet betting web sites in the UK, few are gambling sites advertising card games such as poker and black jack. A majority of the globe’s 2,000 net wagering casinos are located in places with dubious internet gambling rules. Antigua and Costa Rica are responsible for for more than one thousand sites between them.

The Gov’t in the UK is looking to introduce procedures and a tax setup to manage the operating of the online betting sector. With such regulatory framework in place, web wagering activities would be observed and the business will achieve even bigger penetration in the near future.
