A few days after a report published by Nielsen/NetRatings showed that traffic to online casinos was down 56% in October, ScanBase is reporting that it has detected an increase in online gambling sites requests.
ScanSafe is a leading company which regularly publishes a report called “Global Threat Report on Web and Instant Messaging”. ScanSafe has real time access into more than 5 billion web requests, meaning that the company can see exactly which websites are web users accessing. The reports main goal is to track the expanding world of Spyware, phishing sites and other web security vulnerabilities. As a part of the report published today, ScanSafe mentions and intresting fact regarding the online gambling industry. According to ScanSafe October saw an increase of the more than 40% in requests to online gambling site from the US.
The industry was expecting a sharp decline in requests to online gambling since the signing, October 13th, of the Unlawful internet Gambling Act by President Bush. Those estimation were confirmed in an earlier reports by Nielsen/NetRatings which shows a sharp decline in traffic numbers for the major online gambling sites.
ScanSafe’s Vice President of product strategy Dan Nadir said that some of the requests were assoicted with the October World Series signifying that perhaps those requests were “compounded by gamblers looking to register with alternative providers before further regulations clarifying the Act are put into place.”
Since most of traffic loss which was mentioned in the Nielsen/NetRatings reports was attributed to the most popular online gambling sites (which also blocked access to US citizens after the bill’s approval) it is possible many Americans are actively looking for alternatives before restrictions resulting from the law are actually enforced.
