Data shows the impact of Covid-19 on gambling behaviour

The Gambling Commission has released additional data showing how the further tightening of Covid-19 lockdown measures has impacted online gambling behavior in Britain.

The data reflects the period between March and December, inclusive, and covers both online and (where applicable) offline gambling operators’ data, noting that December again saw the closure of all land premises.

This also affected non-gamstop offers:

The latest data from operators online for December shows:

  • Activity in the online market has increased in a traditionally busy period, with a monthly increase of 6% in active accounts _0_ and 12% in bets, while gross gaming yield (GGY) increased by 30% in due to the return of strong margins for operators in real event betting and the growth of the GGY and the increase in the number of players in other verticals such as slots.
  • GY slots rose 13% to almost £ 200million. The number of bets has also increased (12% to nearly 6 billion) as well as the number of active accounts (up 6% to almost 3 million), both the highest in the Covid-19 pandemic period.
