Potential? The online gambling market is already saturated with thousands of sites, all vying to rip you off... One more would have barely have made a blip...

More like none of them ;)

Anyway i don't expect much from Don Mattrick. Every time this guy open his mouth he sounds like an immature teenager.

Kids? How on earth were they going to ever monetize -that-?  Kids don't have credit/debit cards, so you can't exactly bleed them unless you're getting them on premium rate mobile services...

You get kids hooked on the concept and transition them to gambling when they come of age. That and a lot of kids lie about their age and have access to their parents' credit / debit cards.
