Gambling industry in the United Kingdom (UK) - Statistics & Facts

Gambling has shown an overall increase in the United Kingdom (UK) over years past, as reflected in the increase of casino attendance in Great Britain, as well as in the revenue of the different gambling sectors in the UK, which show a definite consistency of betting as the predominant revenue source. The gambling industry has been giving jobs to some 100,000 to 125,000 employees in the UK in the past years, of which the majority works in the betting sector, followed by casino, bingo and arcades.

The age of gambling participants in the UK tends to be fairly high, with people between 45 and 64 years old showing the highest proportion of gambling participation.

Devices used for online betting all show a similar tendency, irrelevant from the sport or general content that was bet on.

In terms of problem gambling, the number of new self-exclusions for betting has increased, and the amount of underage gambling has decreased over the past years.
