Is the Shift Towards Online Gambling Still Growing in the UK?
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

The gambling industry in general has gradually shifted more and more towards the online market during recent years. Gambling in the UK is divided quite evenly in terms of online and live betting and, according to the gambling commission, 50% of the gambling market is generated by in-person betting. Recently there has been a bigger shift towards gambling online due to the current situation, however different forms of gambling are seeing different changes.

Slots

People playing online slots has seen a big increase within the past year of around 25%. The amount of online slots players is now remaining at roughly the same level, and recent popular slots games such as Age of the Gods, Mega Moolah, and Lucky Emeralds have kept new slots players coming back.

Casino & Gaming

Casino games such as Roulette, Blackjack, and Baccarat are typically known as player favourites, and these games are also the main source of live casino betting. As mentioned in a previous article, Blackjack is known to be a particular player favourite due to the lower house edge. Casino games are still popular online, however, and offer a different kind of feel to the live experience. The amount of people gambling through online casino and gaming has roughly stayed the same, showing people are remaining interested due to the large range of online casino games available to players.

Poker

As reported back in April, interest in online Poker is currently at an all-time high. The number of people playing Online Poker rose yearly by 53% back in March. Numbers have since started to fall slightly. However there is still a huge demand for the game, and the industry has managed to maintain an increasing number of people playing online. Online Poker sites offer a variety of games, with the most popular version being Texas Hold’em – however, other variations are available such as Omaha, Stud, and Draw games.

Betting (Virtual and Real Event)

Sports betting and betting, in general, are where the biggest changes have been seen. Virtual betting was initially up 88% from the previous year, recorded back in March. Since live sporting events have started to return to action, real event betting has now begun to grow again, with the number of virtual betters falling. Virtual betting still remains high compared to previous records, but the return of live sports events has diminished its growth.

In terms of real event betting, there continues to be a projected big shift towards betting online and, with the return of popular live sports such as Football, Golf, and Boxing, the number of online betters looks likely to grow.

Overall, it seems like the shift towards gambling online is going to continue to grow. The UK gambling market shows that people enjoy the variety in the methods of gaming and betting, but that the shift towards more online gambling is likely to continue to happen.

Gazprom International Children’s Social Programme Football for Friendship unites 211 countries and regions of the world. The programme invites coaches to complete a new online course of the International Football for Friendship Coaches Academy.

The International Football for Friendship Coaches Academy is a free online educational platform for which were created modules of practical exercises aimed at improving the qualifications of coaches of children’s teams and football classes all around the world. The course is based on the successful experience of work with the international children’s teams during various seasons of Football for Friendship. Its goal is to help coaches teach their students the psychology of training and communication with children of different cultures, races, nationalities, and physical abilities.

In total, over the period of the International Football for Friendship Academy’s existence, over 4 000 coaches have completed their education. The course was developed by the heads of the teaching process and coaches of the FC Barcelona Academy, experts of the FIFA and UEFA humanitarian programmes, representatives of Football Union of Russia (FUR), the Brazil national team, FC Delhi Dynamos, FC Zenit, FC Schalke 04, and football federations of different countries.

The new online course offers theory, practical exercises, recommendations on organizing the training process that encourages the principles of fair play, fairness, equality, that form the basis of the Football for Friendship programme. The educational course is free and available in 10 languages: Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Hindi, Italian, Russia, Spanish, Turkish.

“It’s very important for a football team coach to gain the trust of young players, to prove that they are themself committed to those human and sporting values that they are trying to convey. The International Football for Friendship Academy is a unique educational platform for coaches around the world: the methodology teaches the training processes, as well as the main principles of interaction with young athletes, and explains what qualities and values should be instilled in young athletes so that they can grow into adult professionals of an international level. I have no doubt that the Academy’s work will have a huge positive effect, both for the coaches and for the players,” notes Real Madrid and Brazil Legend, World Cup winner and 3 times UEFA Champions League Winner, Global Ambassador of Football for Friendship, Roberto Carlos.

The International Football for Friendship Academy is part of the new Digital Platform footballforfriendship.com, which has become the main venue for the programme’s events this year. It provides access to broadcasts, International Children’s Press Center materials, player ratings and championship tables, the schedule of the International Forum and the presentations of projects on the development of children’s football.

The International Children’s Social Programme Football for Friendship is implemented by Gazprom since 2013. Over the previous seven seasons, the programme has united over 6 000 participants from 211 countries and regions and over 5 000 000 supporters.

Young Players and Young Journalists are the participants of the programme – boys and girls aged 12 including children with disabilities. Young Players represent different countries and cultures united in the mixed teams. They show that nationality, gender, and physical abilities aren’t a barrier to becoming a team. Young Journalists cover the events of the programme in the International Children’s Press Center. All participants become Young Ambassadors of the programme and continue to share their Football for Friendship experience and promote universal human values: friendship, equality, fairness, health, peace, devotion, victory, traditions, and honour.

UEFA, FIFA, football federations and the world’s leading football clubs, international charity foundations, famous athletes, politicians, and artists support Football for Friendship. The project has received multiple national and international awards in the field of social responsibility, sports, and communications, including the world record for the most nationalities in a football training session in history.
