CEJUEGO, Spain’s leading gaming trade association, has released its “Gaming and Society” report. As per the report, 9 out of 10 adults in Spain see gambling as an acceptable pastime and 29 million people played at least one type of gambling modality last year. The study was carried out by the Institute of Politics and Governance at the Carlos III University of Madrid.

The study shows that 92% of some of the people surveyed see gaming as leisure. Approximately 6.6 million people (which represent 20% of the population in Spain) visited a casino, bingo or gambling facility in 2018. Moreover, it was detailed that the rate of problem gambling was 0.3% of the Spanish adult population.

“Regarding the games managed by private operators, the analysis concludes that they attracted more restricted audiences of different generations, highlighting that their clients are divided into those who play out of curiosity and those who play as a hobby and because they offer them spaces to socialise with friends and acquaintances,” a spokesperson for CEJUEGO said.

Approximately 1.5 million people gambled online during the study period which represents 0.9% of the total population in Spain. “This group shows dispersed behaviour patterns, from those who play stably to those who do it out of curiosity or who bet on an exciting game. The behaviour of these users indicates that they have learned how to play online and rationalise their use – shorter sessions, moderate monthly spending or decreases in the playing of some games,” CEJUEGO said.
