Television Ads Making No Impact in UK With Online Bola88 Gambling
Advertising is a key component to almost any business. When legislation was passed last September to allow companies to advertise their product the thought was that the online community would feel the effects.
A study done by the Gambling Commission in the UK has found that the advertising has had little, if no, impact for online gambling. The same amount of people are playing now as there was before the new laws.
The Commission claims that only 8.8 percent of people in the UK that were studied have participated in any form of online gambling. That figure is the same as it was in 2007, showing no change from the television ads.
The majority of people that were doing the online gambling were men between the ages of 18-44. There was an increase, however, from last year in the number of women who admitted to taking part in the online gaming.
Computers and hand held devices were the most popular among the Bola88 gamblers, with 6.8 percent of the people admitting to using these devices while gambling. Mobile telephones were next with 2.3 percent using the phones to gamble online.
So just where do online gamblig games get played out on a person’s screen clearly but where is the screen information sent from. Well the majority of online gambling sites are hosted offhsore for tax reasons. We have done a quick rundown of the main locations or perhaps we should call them the most reputable locations.
Aldreney is the most accpetable and widely used of the gaming jurisdictions around. They have a variety of bandwidth suppliers and severe rules and regulations as regards software testing. There are no restrictions on where Alderney operators can take bets from.
Costa Rica is regarded as being slighlty questionable, there are no software testing requirements for example. As regards bandwidth operators have to deal with a state monopoly.
Gibraltar is on the Uk white list as per Alderney, its another ginat in terms of the amount of market share it has gathered.
Isle of Man is on the UK white list – respectable perhaps too severe in its application of a regulated approach meant that it was prohibative to work from this territory when they legalised online gaming some years ago.
Kahnawake is an Indian reservation in Canada – due to the rights in the states for Indian tribes to use gaming to ensure the continuation of their traditions etc this is how the Mohawkes operate a massive server centre. They are not part of the UK white list and suffered some loss of business as a result.
Malta as its in the EU has been growing dramatically. This could become the biggest of the lot in time.
Netherland Antilles despuite the name quite a stand up location with some good regulations.
Panama sketchy details on this location only but regulations appear to be very light weight.
Tasmania as one would expect is heavily regulated.
United Kingdom the death knell for the UK was the decsion to charge heavily on taxes. Making the comparison between this location and Gibraltar and Alderney worthless. Most major high street brands have lept their web sites off shore as a result.
