Poll Shows Women, Young More Likely to Gamble Online

A new survey has found that online gambling appeals more to women and the young.

The survey was commissioned by The Lloyd D. Levenson Institute of Gaming, Hospitality and Tourism at Richard Stockton College.

Of 3,000 people surveyed from the Northeast Corridor and other major markets in the eastern half of the country, between 16 and 25 percent said they would play electronic versions of blackjack, craps, slots, baccarat, poker and roulette.

Forty percent of females favored Internet poker compared to 13 percent of males. Nearly one in four people under 30 told pollsters they would gamble online. That rate fell to one in 10 for people aged 30 to 49.

The survey has a 1.8 percent margin of error.

New Jersey is considering legalizing online gambling.
