UK Gambling Research Stats – Sept. 1, 2007 – June 2008

Posted on: August 13, 2008

These research findings are derived from the survey conducted by UK Gambling commission regulating casinos, bingo, gaming machines and lotteries in the UK.

Key Research Findings are:

1. Over the year to June 2008, 8.8 percent of the 8,000 adults surveyed said they had participated in at least one form of remote gambling (through a computer, mobile phone or interactive/digital TV) in the previous month. This remains the same as the 2007 calendar year figure, which was up on the 2006 number (2006: 7.2 percent.)

2. 90.9 percent of respondents said they had not participated in any form of remote — i.e., online — gambling.

3. Those participating in remote gambling remain more likely to be male than female, and are more likely to be aged 18-44.

4. If those only playing National Lottery games by remote means are excluded, 5.0 percent of respondents had participated in remote gambling. Overall, 6.2 percent of respondents said they had gambled remotely on the National Lottery/Tickets for the National Lottery draw in the previous month.

5. Remote gambling via a computer, laptop or handheld device was most popular (6.9 percent of all adult respondents), followed by gambling via mobile phone (2.3 percent) and interactive/digital TV (2.0 percent).
