Some more info here, to show us how much money there is in the gaming industry. And in this kind of business i believe, it must be the easiest for tax evasion, especially when it comes for online revenue. Almost 11% increase in half a year, is impressive.

That's a serious amount of money. I did a little research and learned that Novomatic mainly designs and manufactures electronic betting machines, such as slot machines, video poker machines, video lottery terminals, multiplayer games, electronic table games, and other automated betting terminals, which are sold in over 80 countries.

There is a huge difference gambling some money away for fun, and gambling it away trying to get rich, which brings addiction. Cause when you get hooked, nothing works for you. A win will just delay, the same outcome. Friends and family are very important here, saving some from the downfall.
