The U.S. Gaming Survey, founding by a research group over 30 of online gambling, conducted a survey in December with the Poker Player’s Alliance and found a strong support for regulated online poker. The survey had 8,000 respondents from all 50 states as well as Puerto Rico. The general demographic was 30-60 years old with income of over $50,000 a year.
There were some interesting answers to some of the questions. For example it was asked: Did Black Friday have any effect on their poker playing habits? 41% said they did stop playing online poker due to Black Friday and 5% said they stopped for other reasons. 54% said they are still playing poker on offshore sites despite Black Friday.
To the question: Would Americans change their land based casino play if online poker was regulated and available? There was another surprise as 70% of respondents did not care who runs the online poker rooms as long as they got the best experience for their money. 20% preferred the current casinos or online poker sites ran the poker rooms and 8% said they preferred the sites to be run by the states.
A more expected response comes from the question; Do most respondents consider poker a game of skill? Yes was the almost unanimous result.
There was one more interesting results from the survey and that was that unlike what many U.S. politicians thought, respondents to this survey spent very little on online poker. Only 10% said they spent over $250 a week playing online poker. 70% said they spent less than $100. This is far less than a Harvard University study said that land based gamblers spent.
BGaming released in the middle of December 2020, a video slot called Fruit Million, which drew a lot of attention from punters. In just 10 days after the slot was launched, the game was in the top eight of the 100M-GGR casino.
