Some new studies show that students flock to online gambling sites in the number of records. Studies show a 12% increase in students participating in online gambling from two years ago. The law enforcement enforcement law (Uigea) was passed and became law in October 2006 by the government to curb gambling online. But Uigea does not prevent gambling online, but actually has increased internet gambling activities.
The US is considered the top internet gambling market in the world and now high school and college students aged 14 to 22 are starting to serve. One study was conducted by the Annenberg Youth Communication Institute at Pennsylvania University. The telephone study found that at the age of 16% male college claimed to have gambled online that the rate rose from 4.4% in 2008. Middle school students gambling online each month rose from 2.7% to 6.2%. From the participants almost no one claimed weekly online gambling.
The woman in this study showed a significant leap in the participation of online gambling with secondary school females that gambled online PKV Games monthly jumped from 0.5% to 1.5%. Women have become a driving force behind the explosion in Poker in the US.
Online Poker players have lobbied the US Congress to revoke the current Uigean law. Bill just passed the home financial service committee, but it didn’t look like it would be chosen by a full house before the end of the year. Without sound this year, the new bill must be introduced in 2011. The idea of regulating online casinos and poker rooms have many politicians including in their campaigns. Hope that this will help many countries increase tax income and help balance the state budget.
As a result of these studies projected that 400,000 people aged 5,000 and 500,000 high school students are online at least once a month.
