A study by Roy Morgan Research revealed that Australian punters are wagering less in land casinos but spending more at cyber casinos.
The report showed that for the year ending September 30th, 2012, land based casino bets decreased by A$1.6 billion to A$16.9 billion. Online gambling generated A$1.1 billion, which was up from A$928 million from 2010.
Land based numbers are on quite the drastic slide. The industry had generated A$20 billion in land wagers in 2010. Pokie machines generated A$10.2 billion of those wagers, down A$1 billion from the year before.
