According to a poll among 500 Jewish Israeli respondents

Most Israelis would oppose to legal gambling in their country

(Israel).- According to the Keevon Research, Strategy and Communications survey released Monday, 37 percent of Israelis want gambling legalized while 55 percent are happy with keeping it illegal. Eight percent had no opinion.


he poll, which had 500 Jewish Israeli respondents and a 4.5 percent margin of error, found that opposition to gambling is stronger among the religious, the less educated and the poor.

Israel has a brisk underground casino scene and many of its citizens regular visit nearby European countries where gambling is legal.
