Canada.- The results of a study carried out by OnlineCasinoSpot.ca show online gambling streaming habits in Canada. The survey found that 58 per cent of stream viewers are women, contradicting the prevailing belief that men were the bigger audience.

Other figures showed that 67 per cent of viewers have a “technical” profession, and the humanities accounted for only 33 per cent. It also revealed that most of the viewers watch streams in the evening rather than during the day.

The study of 25,000 people was conducted between March 1 and September 1. OnlineCasinoSpot.ca is a gaming site that offers analytics and independent reviews of Canadian online casinos.

Robert Lewis, an OnlineCasinoSpot.ca expert, commented: “It was even more surprising for us to find out that viewers like doctors, educators, lawyers, and engineers follow the broadcasts much more often. And people practicing “creative” professions, including musicians, artists, photographers, and the like, hardly watch any streaming sessions.”

Ontario’s online gambling market opened on April 4. iGaming Ontario, the subsidiary of Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO), has responsibility for regulating the market, as well as issuing licences to operators and suppliers.
