A survey in Ontario, Canada, suggests that the population is not taking readily to sports betting.

The survey covered 1,222 people between July 19-20 on regulated sports betting following its launch on April 4.

Asked if they were aware of the launch, 55 per cent said that they were not and of those indicating an interest, 55.5 per cent said that they had not yet had a bet. Ten per cent of those said that they wagered monthly and 8.7 per cent said that they had a bet on a daily basis.
