On­line gam­bling

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

A GAM­BLING web­site may change its ad­ver­tis­ing strat­egy af­ter a sur­vey showed the av­er­age on­line gam­bler from Peter­bor­ough loses £209.34 per year.

A study con­ducted by Castle­casino.com stated that Peter­bor­ough’s av­er­age losses are the 17th big­gest for 50 cities cov­ered in the sur­vey.

The heav­i­est losses were in Liver­pool (£482.42) and Mid­dles­brough (£479.29), while the peo­ple los­ing the least were from Ip­swich (£147.93).

A spokesman for Roulette. co.uk said: “This data could re­de­fine our ge­o­graphic ad­ver­tis­ing strat­egy.

“This is very in­ter­est­ing re­search, es­pe­cially as we pro­mote Castle­casino.com on our web­site.”

Marc Etches, chief ex­ec­u­tive of the Re­spon­si­ble Gam­bling Trust, said: “The amount spent on gam­bling on­line is less than peo­ple prob­a­bly think - it works out to less than £1 per day.

“I spend more than that on a cup of cof­fee. Peo­ple with gam­bling ad­dic­tions make up less than one per cent of the mar­ket.”
