Press of Atlantic City Report

Poll: Online gambling may draw more to brick-and-mortar casinos

By DONALD WITTKOWSKI Staff Writer

Contrary to speculation that Internet gambling could hurt the brick-and-mortar casinos, a new survey indicates Web games will not cannibalize the Atlantic City market and may actually generate a slight increase in casino visits.

U.S. Gaming Survey, of Bala Cynwyd, Pa., conducted the independent poll, which found that 58 percent of the respondents from New Jersey have no plans to change their visits to Atlantic City’s casinos now that Internet gambling has been legalized in the state.

Eight percent of the New Jersey respondents said they would increase their casino trips, while 4 percent said they would not go to Atlantic City as often. Nearly 30 percent of those polled said they do not visit Atlantic City’s casinos at all.

“From the results of this poll, residents in New Jersey and other U.S. states do not indicate that the impending online gaming will cannibalize land-based casino interests or revenue and will possibly mildly increase it,” said Larry Gibbs, U.S. Gaming Survey’s vice president of marketing.

POKER PLAYERS REBUFF COMMON ONLINE GAMBLING MYTHS
Hartley Henderson of US Gaming Survey provides insight from the company’s Poker Players Alliance-commissioned report into online poker player behavior in the US.

Perhaps we will forever be indebted to Kenny Rogers warning us in “The Gambler” that “you got to know when to hold ‘em, know when to fold ‘em... and know when to run.” That sentiment was channeled in two comprehensive studies of current online poker player behavior in order to authenticate the truth before the US enters the game to officially regulate and legalize online gambling.

In 2011 and 2012, US Gaming Survey was commissioned by the Poker Players Alliance (PPA) to institute the most comprehensive behavior reviews of online poker players to date. An enthusiastic panel response of over 8,200 participants shared their multiple- choice answers covering several related key issues including effects of “Black Friday,” the emergence of social gaming, taxation, and their potential loyalties and motivation to play poker online. The results returned more surprises than would be commonplace at the World Series of Poker. The initial US Online Poker Survey© received 2,715 independent comments from respondents to back their opinions.
