Australia has proven to be a hotbed for online casino games players. IBIS and Gaming Club have provided research that shows that online gambling and top online casinos in the country are set to grow by 3.3% in 2012. Concurrently it has been estimated that the online casino games industry will see an increase of $22.5 billion in revenue, with an average spend of $1,265 per person.

 

On closer look at the statistics presented, poker players have increased in number in the country. Poker still remains the frontrunner in the online casino games industry, projected to make up 60.2% of total player spending.

 

Gaming Club official, Terry Maverick, commented, “The gambling industry has been very strong in Australia for many years now. This has clearly been helped by the growth of several online gaming websites that offer hundreds of online casino games. At Gaming Club, for example, we provide a great range of video poker, online casino, and table games, as well as free Loyalty Points every time you place a bet.”

 

Sally Gainsbury, from the Centre for Gambling, Education and Research at Southern Cross University, stated that the rise in mobile online casinos and bonuses coupled with increased access to technology has made it easier for gamers to place bets and access sites from wherever they are at any time of the day.

 

Gainsbury went on to say, “There’s been so much marketing it has allowed online gambling companies to really target sporting events and sporting fans. So now on TV when you see someone score a try in the corner of a field, there’s a Centrebet post that they are knocking over.”
