The internet gaming industry in the United Kingdom has increased two fold in 5 years, with in excess of one million gamblers regularly gambling using the web. According to research conducted by the Dept. of Culture, Media and Sport, United Kingdom gamblers make up about one-third of the Old World’s approximated total of 3.3 million internet bettors.

The typical sum bet by every gambler is estimated at one thousand pounds, with the European industry now valued at £3 500 000 000 each year.

Amidst the 70 web betting sites in the United Kingdom, few are gambling sites advertising casino card games such as poker and chemin de fer. A majority of the planet’s 2,000 internet betting sites are stationed in places with dubious net casino regulations. 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 regulations and a tax system to legalize the working of the internet gaming business. With this type of regulatory framework in place, net gaming activities would be observed and the business will achieve even greater penetration in the near future.
