Today, the game industry is undoubtedly one of the largest sectors in the world, and the age range it appeals to has now opened up significantly. While the industry now appeals to more people, a significant number of people of all ages gamble with those who have followed since the past. According to the latest research, there has been a significant increase in the rate of older people playing games as they age.
As you know, the gaming industry has become more and more involved in our lives, especially in the 1990s, and has been growing ever since. The continuous development of the sector has attracted new people and kept the first followers in the sector. Those who have followed it since then have created another statistic.
According to the latest research from the Global Web Index, the rate of people between the ages of 55 and 64 who gamble is at its highest level in history. There are several different reasons for this. The first reason, of course, is that people are spending more time at home due to Covid-19. The second reason is that the gaming industry is now reaching people of all ages. And finally, the age of the first to follow the gaming industry. When all of this comes together, we see that since 2018, the rate of people between the ages of 55 and 64 playing games has increased by 32%.
According to the Global Web Index, 86% of internet users use the internet for gaming. 24% of this age group consider playing games with relatives as “family time”.
