Survey data on remote gambling participation: February 2007

Abstract

AIM: Assess remote gambling participation. METHOD: ICM omnibus survey, a 2,000-adult telephone survey conducted quarterly. FINDINGS: In 2006 just under 8% of adults surveyed said they had participated in at least one form of remote gambling in the previous month. If those only playing the National Lottery remotely are excluded, under 6% of respondents had participated in remote gambling. Overall, more than 5% of respondents said they had gambled remotely on the National Lottery in the previous month (either only or in addition to other types of gambling activity). Those participating in remote gambling are more likely to be male than female and are more likely to be aged 18-34. Remote gambling via a computer, laptop or handheld device was most popular (5.2% of all adult respondents), followed by gambling via mobile phone (over 2%) and interactive/digital TV (under 2%).
