Survey data on remote gambling participation: May 2007

Abstract

AIM: Assess remote gambling participation. METHOD: ICM omnibus survey, a 2,000-adult telephone survey conducted quarterly. FINDINGS: Over the four quarters to March 2007, 8.4% 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 7.9%. If those only playing the National Lottery remotely are excluded, 6.1% 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 (5.7% of all adult respondents), followed by gambling via mobile phone (2.5%) and interactive/digital TV.
