Survey data on remote gambling participation: June 2009

Abstract

AIM: Assess remote gambling participation. METHOD: ICM omnibus survey, a 2,000-adult telephone survey conducted quarterly. FINDINGS: Between September 2008 and June 2009, on average 10.2% of adults participated in at least one form of remote gambling, around half of those only in the National Lottery. Remote gambling participation increased consistently from 7.2% in 2006, 8.8% in 2007, and 9.7% in 2008, due largely to an increase in National Lottery participation. Excluding National Lottery, the figures are 2006 5.1%, 2007 5.2%, 2008 5.6% and in the year to June 2009, 5.5%. Those participating were more likely to be male and aged 18-44. Computer, laptop or handheld devices were most popular.
