Online gambling growing fast
The Register reports: [edited]
Internet gaming is now the fastest growing segment of internet commerce, according to a report from Gamingpublic.com. Revenue in the sector is growing at a rate of 22 per cent per year.
Gamingpublic.com cited a Merrill Lynch study that concluded the global internet gaming market could reach - wait for it - $528bn annually by 2015.
Online gambling currently accounts for only about 3 per cent of the global gambling market.
