Studies by market research firm Poker Players Research have shown that online poker players are a good prospect for cross-selling to other gambling styles, with the number of real money pokerheads also gambling on other betting games up by as much as fifty percent in the last two years.
Poker Players Research reports that 42 percent of the estimated 20 million online real money poker players now gamble on other activities online, up from 20 percent in 2007, with the bulk of the growth occurring in France, Germany and Scandinavia after the UIGEA constrained Internet gambling in the United States.
