Casino Gambling Revenue up in 2005 especially Poker

Voted Top Online Casino Several Years in a Row!

Most Americans, however, saw gambling as an important entertainment and tourism option, the report said. Casino-goers were also more likely to have attended college and earn more than the average person.

Poker continued to be a popular game, with nearly one in five Americans playing it last year, the same as in 2004. Revenue from the game increased 37 percent to $207 million in Nevada and New Jersey.

Poker was the most popular game on the Internet, where more Americans are gambling now for its convenience despite confusion about the legality of wagering online, according to the report.

Although the U.S. Justice Department says a 1961 law that forbids interstate telephone betting also applies to the Internet, the report said only 19 percent of the 552 Internet gamblers polled thought it was illegal in the United States.

Almost half the people who gambled online said they did so primarily because it was convenient, while fewer than one in 10 said their biggest reason was the chance to win money, according to the report.
