A Brief Look at the Interesting Insights Compiled by SOFTSWISS
One of the biggest surprises was that desktop computers still rule among online bettors. While the use of mobile devices is increasing year on year, serious bettors still prefer to use their desktop or laptop computers. These devices have close to a 75% share while mobile phones have just over 25%. The use of tablets or other devices is minuscule in comparison. That is for total betting sums placed which shows that the more invested bettor prefers larger screens for researching purposes.
That said, in terms of devices used that were responsible for the most bets, this was mobile devices. The stats were almost the exact opposite. What this insight tells us, is those who prefer smaller bets, are likely to use mobile phones. This will be bets placed on the spur of the moment rather than after too much research.
Not as surprising is that people between the ages of 31 and 40 account for the biggest bet count share of 36.64% at the SOFTSWISS sportsbook, which means they place more bets than any other age range. That said, while placing fewer bets, it is those in the 41-50 age range that will bet the most money. Men as expected account for more than 73% of all bets placed, at least on the SOFTSWISS sportsbook platform.
The report also showed that USD was the currency used more than any other for betting purposes. It was used 61% of the time compared to 30% of the EUR. Surprisingly, the Ethereum (ETH) cryptocurrency was in third place, above Bitcoin. Football was the outright favourite sport for betting with a 59% share which put it above the likes of tennis, baseball, cricket, and table tennis.
