The Economist has recently decided to hold an interesting research. Its purpose was to determine where more lovers of gambling lived. The journalists held a large-scale work analyzing a number of factors. In particular, they drew attention to the number of gambling clubs in different states and the sums being received by them during a year.
Initially it was assumed that the players from the United States, Britain or France would be at the top of the list, but suddenly it was Australia. It was found that the average resident of this country spent on this entertainment more than 1 000 Euro. However, it is worth noting that the gambling business in this country is completely legal, which means that gambling replenishes the state budget.
This situation is of some concern to the Anti-Gambling Committee. However, it should be noted that the situation has not had a negative effect on the financial well-being of citizens.
Analysts were surprised that the British being famous gamblers spent only 10 pounds on a single game (as much as a movie ticket).
The Economist drew attention to the way things work in this field in the CIS. However, considering that the majority of gambling clubs in these countries work illegally, to analyze their income is not possible.
If we take into account the number of inhabitants of the Russian Federation, who regularly play the state lottery (much more than in France or England), it can be concluded that the Russians are very venturesome people who could compete with other countries.
