One in ten punters tempted to gamble online for a living

For those of you who don't know, a punter is British for bettor. So I guess if I was in the UK, I would be the online sports punter :O)

From Net Imperative:
The rising popularity of online gaming is causing many UK punters to consider gaming online for a living and giving up their day jobs, according to new research.
Weird (from the same article):
Interestingly online gamblers do not appear to also be particularly large sports betters as well. Just 12% use an online bookmaker, 6% offline and 6% use an online betting exchange. Online gamblers won’t even gamble in office or social sweepstakes.
Well, not this online gambler. I destroy my office pool every year :O)

Good Luck.
