Russians bet more on International sites than Russian ones

Russian affiliate Bookmaker-Ratings published a user survey in which shows that 14.6% of Russian users are betting on a monthly basis, 42.4% of them bet every week and 35.8% wagered every day.

Although 68.2% of these users bet exclusively on Russian-licensed operators and only 8.3% only choose international sites, the average monthly spending with international betting sites was 255 EUR, nearly twice the amount that bettors wagered with Russian-licensed sites – 120 EUR.

During this week, the Russian media outlet Kommersant published the results of a Sberbank survey on the nation’s sports bettors. The survey revealed that the overall betting market will grow at an annual rate of 7% per year through 2020. Over this same period of time, the annual growth in Russian-licensed online bookmakers will hit 30%.

Svetlana Sukhanova, Sberbank analyst, said that this online growth will not necessarily come from an increase in the number of bettors but the belief is that Russia’s online bettors will increasingly transfer their wagering from internationally licensed operators to locally licensed sites. 

We will just have to wait and see!
