Survey data on remote gambling participation: July 2008

Abstract

AIM: Assess remote gambling participation. METHOD: ICM omnibus survey, a 2,000-adult telephone survey conducted quarterly. FINDINGS: Over the year to June 2008, 8.8% of adults had participated in at least one form of remote gambling in the previous month. This is the same as the 2007 calendar year figure of 8.8% and compares with the 2006 calendar year figure of 7.2%. If those only playing National Lottery games remotely are excluded, 5.0% 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 18-44. Remote gambling via a computer, laptop or handheld device was most popular (6.9% of all adult respondents), followed by gambling via mobile phone (2.3%) and interactive/digital TV (2.0%).
