The study covers the Northeast megalopolis region with a range from Boston to Washington D.C. The study includes the states of New Jersey and New York.

The sample group of 3,000 people shows that online gambling appeals more to younger people and women. Between 16 and 25% of those sampled said they have a willingness to play casino games like blackjack, baccarat, poker, roulette, craps, and slots online.

However the most surprising stat of the study is that 40% of the women surveyed said that the favor online poker, compared to just 13% of men. 25% of those surveyed under the age of 30 said they would be happy to gamble online, compared to 10% of respondents aged 30-49.

The study had a 1.8% margin of error.

Those are some interesting results. Do you think it is just a regional thing, or does this carry throughout the country?
