Shows little change

UK Gambling Commission released latest participation survey results

(UK).- The UK Gambling Commission has released the results of its quarterly gambling participation survey undertaken by ICM Research who conducted omnibus surveys on a sample of 4000 respondents.

T

he latest survey shows little change in the gambling participation of UK residents with 58 % of respondents partaking in at least one form of gambling in the previous four weeks compared to 57 % in the year to December 2012.

Other pertinent stats pertaining to the gambling patterns of respondents during the previous four weeks include:

-    A larger proportion of male than female respondents participated in gambling (63 % of males and 54 % of females).

-    An average of 15 % of respondents had participated in at least one form of online gambling in the previous four weeks. This compares to 14 % in the year to December 2012.

-   A larger proportion of male than female respondents had participated in online gambling in the previous four weeks (18 % of males and 12 % of females).

-   If those respondents only playing the National Lottery online are excluded, the proportion of respondents who had participated in online gambling falls to 8 %. This compares to the same figure of 8 % in the year to December 2012.

-   Again, the most popular gambling activity was participation in the National Lottery (47 % of respondents), followed by other lotteries (13 %) and scratch cards (11 %).  No other individual gambling activity was participated in by more than 4 % of respondents.

-    On average, 74 % of gamblers had gambled ‘in person only’, while a further 12 % had gambled ‘online only’ and 14 % had done so both ‘online’ and ‘in person’.
