More exciting figures about online casinos
If you’re sitting in front of your PC or smartphone and playing one of the Wunderino games, you might wonder every now and then how many people actually play online casino games. Unlike in the real casino, nobody sits next to you and watches you play, and yet the number of players is gigantic. Today we’re throwing a few numbers around and showing you how big the online casino community really is.
Did you know that 75 percent of germans have already tried gambling? The primarily motive is winning money. According to a recent study, about 70 percent of gamblers play casino games because they just like to win money. The second most important motive is excitement: About 30 percent take part in gambling because of it. Other reasons to play are: social gathering (13.2 percent), relaxation (8.2 percent) and diversion (6.9 percent).
But even more exciting are the revenue figures of the online casino providers. Worldwide, around 45 billion euros were turned over in 2018. Over the past 10 years, this meant an increase of around 270 percent. For comparison – in 2008 it was just 17 billion euros revenue worldwide. Just like in the actual casino, the audience is a motley mix: Most players, however, are between 25 and 34 years old. With almost 25 percent, they lead the players’ community, closely followed by 35-44 year olds with almost 23 percent. Shortly before retirement, however, the player’s appetite seems to grip one or the other again: At the age of 55-64 around 20 percent of people still try their luck in online casinos.
Sports betting is the absolute favourite among online games with 50 percent. A little far behind, but still in second place, is the online casino with 26 percent. Less popular and therefore six percent lower on the scale is poker… Who would have expected that? And this despite the fact that the first online poker website was launched in 1998. Finally a last statistic, which we would not like to withhold from you: Most online players sit in front of their laptops. With 55 percent, this is the most popular device. But also the smartphone is with 29 percent one of the favourites.
