The UK's gambling industry has just broken the £2 billion mark.

Recent reports have the UK's gambling industry as having grown year on year, which is all the more impressive when you consider the economic climate that has darkened the UK's doorstep for the past few years. Despite financial hardships, it seems that people love to play casino games – possibly in part to help them forget about their woes – and with the widespread availability of these games through increased high street presence and the internet, it's even easier than ever for people to play.

Going out is now considered to be an unnecessary expense and as a cost-saving alternative, people are turning to the internet as a means of entertainment and as a way of cutting down on expenses. A night out at the bingo hall involves the cost of transport, tickets and dinner which can all add up very rapidly. By contrast, playing games at home on your computer might only involve depositing £10 – and you'll receive a nice bonus so your money stretches further.

Another reason cited as being a factor in the increase of online gaming is the smoking ban, which was imposed some years ago. Those accustomed to being able to smoke whilst playing at a casino or a bingo hall found it restrictive to be unable to do this. By staying in, players can smoke whenever they like.

In addition, busy people love the convenience of online gaming and the ability to fit their games around their schedules. A quick five-minute unscheduled break is convenient and doesn't involve planning or taking time to go to the casino. The ease of access and convenience are thought to be the two main reasons online gaming has seen such an increase of late.

Industry experts predict that the UK's gambling industry will only increase and continue to experience impressive growth. Great news for online casinos!
