Gambling habits are changing

FIGURES released by the Spanish Treasury Department show that sports betting machines have overtaken some of the more traditional gambling methods in Murcia.

During 2016 as a whole, Murcia spent €466m on all forms of betting but the €60m gambled on the growing number of shops featuring sports betting beat the Spanish National Blind Organisation (ONCE) into second spot with €52m and traditional bingo in third place with €34m.  Bingo halls have experienced a renaissance in recent years due to attracting younger players.

Despite their position, sales of the ONCE tickets, as well as those of the La Primitiva and La Quiniela lotteries have fallen.
