While the poker industries in countries like the US, United Kingdom and in other European nations are expanding and thriving, it would seem that this online gambling sector is also doing very well in Australia.

Recent news reports reveal that the online gambling industry is mainly being driven forward by its online poker sector which is churning out the most revenue. Survey information and statistic released by IBIS and the Gaming Club have described the online gambling and online poker industry in the land Down Under. Reports reveal that the overall gambling revenue for the year 2012 will take a decent profit leap of 3.3 percent. According to these statistics, it would mean that the betting sector in the country will also profit and be taking in $22.5 billion in earnings on an annual basis, for the year 2012. It would be estimated that the average gambler in the country will spend as much as $1,265 on online casino, poker and sports betting. However, this is just an average figure and it is quite likely that these figures may even grow higher, as the popularity of online poker and online gambling is fast spreading across the world.
These reports also indicate that it is not the sports betters and punters who are pushing the online gambling industry in Australia forward but rather the online poker players. The poker players have been responsible for the online gambling profits and rise in revenue but all the other online gambling sectors are also happy with the results. According to Southern Cross University’s Sally Gainsbury who is part of their gambling and education centre, “There’s been so much marketing it has allowed online gambling companies to really target sporting events and sporting fans. So now on TV when you see someone score a try in the corner of a field, there’s a Centrebet post that they are knocking over.”
Poker is the main sector of Australia’s gambling industry and is will eventually be responsible for over 60 percent of the total customer spending in the year 2012.
Terry Maverick, a spokesperson and representative of Gaming Club discussed Australia’s gambling and poker industry. “The gambling industry has been very strong in Australia for many years now. This has clearly been helped by the growth of several online gaming websites that offer hundreds of online casino games. At Gaming Club, for example, we provide a great range of video poker, online casino, and table games, as well as free Loyalty Points every time you place a bet,” he said.
