Spanish Research on Gambling Spending Habits

GIBRALTAR, December 8, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Researchers at the institute for Policy and Governance have conducted a study which reveals that online gamblers spend more money at online casinos than they do at inland based casinos.

Many studies weighing the pro and cons of online vs. land based casinos have been done lately in attempt to determine the clear differences between them. The casino giants used these findings to improve on player interface and wager management online.

Study results show that that more money is spent by players online for they cannot physically feel the money being wagered. Since a player must walk around with chips or coins at land based casinos in order to play in a slots machine or make a table bet: the money spent by players slowly decreases or increases in the player's hands.

Making bets online can be compared to using a credit card as a way to spend money whilst not feeling the cash notes and change in your wallet as they wither away.

1000 online casino players were interviewed by researchers in order to evaluate their understanding of spending. Results show that many of the online players have a poor understanding of the sum of money they have spent online. Some players believed that they have only spent $10 when in fact they have spent $20. This perception is common amongst online players; this is why MansionCasino used this study to help improve their monitoring tools for players, making sure players have a hands-on experience and that they can manage their balance with true responsibility.
