Online casino and gambling experts, Jackpot247, have commented on new findings that suggest playing online poker can actually relax participants.

Though many formal scientific studies done regarding online poker in the past have focused ardently on the negative, new findings have suggested that participating in internet gambling can actually have a positive effect on players, acting as a stress reducer. These results comes from a study done by Canadian scientists, who found that levels of cortisol, the stress hormone, dropped up to 17% when subjects were playing online poker games.

This goes against many assumptions about the ‘adrenaline rush’ that comes with participating in these games, and supports the idea that, if played on regulated sites with all of the safety precautions in place, internet gamblers can use online poker and other games as a legitimate pastime. Scientists now believe that playing poker can actually distract players from the stresses of their daily lives, leading them to become more relaxed.

Online gambling experts, Jackpot247, have commented on these findings, celebrating its unusual focus on the positive effects online gambling can have on players. A spokesperson for the company said:

“In the fight to get online gambling legalised in different countries across the world, which will make the experience safer for players and bring vital tax revenue to struggling governments, it is important that studies such as this are done to highlight the more positive role internet casinos have in the lives of participants. More results like this will work in favour of new rules regarding the regulation of online gambling, especially across the US.”
