Survey data on remote gambling participation: January 2008


AIM: Assess remote gambling participation. METHOD: ICM omnibus survey, a 2,000-adult telephone survey conducted quarterly. FINDINGS: Over the year to December 2007, 9.1% per cent of adults had participated in at least one form of remote gambling in the previous month. This compares with the 2006 calendar year figure of 7.4%. If those only playing the National Lottery remotely are excluded, 5.5% of respondents had participated in remote gambling. Those participating in remote gambling remain 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 (7% of all adult respondents), followed by gambling via mobile phone (2.5%) and interactive/digital TV (under 2%).
