Australians Are The Biggest Gamblers In The World

A report out of Canada paints Australians as the biggest gambling degenerates in the world.  The report, obtained exclusively by The Sunday Telegraph, shows Australian and New Zealand gamblers spend an average of $435 online every month.

This is five times what punters put through poker machines and has prompted renewed calls for bans on online gambling, which allows people to bet using credit.

The study also found the prevalence of problem gambling was up to four times higher for Internet gamblers than those who used traditional means such as poker machines.

More than 20,000 adults from 105 countries were surveyed for the study, conducted by University of Lethbridge professors Robert Wood and Robert Williams.

"Australian Internet gamblers do report higher average monthly gambling spending than the overall average we observed among our sample," Prof Wood said.

"This would suggest that Australian Internet gamblers do indeed spend more on gambling compared with Internet gamblers from most other countries."

Australian Media Man for Gambling911.com, Greg Tingle, rejoiced at the news.

"Ahoy.  This report confirms my suspicions and my own findings... online gambling is red hot in the land down under... Australia.  I think this officially marks a gold rush for the promised land.  Our phone hasn't stopped ringing, and there's a constant stream of overseas enquires.  

"The Australian government's ACMA website blacklist doesn't appear to have slowed down those seeking to make a killing down under.  We're seen a trend in more .net ventures taking off and online casinos are generally keeping the "play for free" or "play for money" option.  Australian newsrooms are also starting to run more stories regarding the online gambling sector and most are surprisingly balanced stories.  We're gladly assisting them on (some) of the inner workings of the online casino industry."
