Irish Online Casinos Take on the Land-based Outlets
Jan 26, 2012
As in Britain, the nearby Irish island has many physical sports betting units squeezed by online competitors.
It is reported by casino gambling news that online sports betting sites in Ireland are quickly raking in revenues at the expense of their land-based competitors.
Therefore, it is not surprising that many traditional betting hot spots are entering the Internet gambling market as now there there is less of a difference between play in casino and online counterparts.

As reported, about 80% of sports betting revenues in Ireland still come from land-based sportsbooks.
Yet, the younger Irish generation that grew up with the technology, the so-called ”digital natives,” seems to prefer mobile sportsbooks for their betting.

On the other side, the Internet outlets are offering casino online bonuses to compete for share of gamblers money.
The Internet-based business model has the advantage of being location independent while saving casinos and online sportsbooks money on renting space in attractive locations, thus enabling them to bonus punters into submission.
