More Italians playing or higher betsMay 9, 2016
Thanks to the legalization of online gaming by AAMS, the amount of bets placed online by Italians is constantly increasing . What is behind this phenomenon? Is the number of players growing or are we seeing an increase in the value of average bets? The second hypothesis seems to be true: the average annual amount spent by Italians in games of chance has risen to 1,000 euros.
In the year just ended our compatriots have invested in the game over 76 billion euro and 9 of these ended up in the Treasury. Of course in times of crisis these are data that may leave you perplexed, but in reality they are the mirror of a well known phenomenon: when everyday life gets harder, people choose to try their luck, hoping for a win that can solve a bit of worry.
The legalization of the game has also contributed greatly to the spread of the phenomenon: with the AAMS license guarantee even the most skeptical have felt reassured and playing online has become an activity that no longer scares anyone. The AAMS sites also provide useful information and support for the game to be enjoyed responsibly.
Rome, Naples and Milan seem to be the capitals of online gaming: poker, blackjack and roulette are very successful and the collection was over 14 billion euros. Rome remains the undisputed capital of Lotto. The regions in which we play the most are Lombardy, Campania and to our surprise even Abruzzo.
