According to a latest research conducted by Nielson Media, online casinos and gambling exceeded social networking in popularity last year.

Their research showed that around 3.2 million people utilized online gambling sites in the U.K. in 2009, which leads to a quite shocking fact that there was whopping 40% boost when compared with the previous year, whilst 2.2 million visited Facebook and other social networking sites.

And together with the numbers of how many visited online gambling sites the research also indicates what the typical demographic is for online casinos.

According to their study, almost 50% of online gamblers are leading the life of middle class or richer, earning no less than £30,000 per year. Female gamblers also comprise 46% of the online gambling population and thus, increasing number of sites is putting their efforts in catering for women.
