UK Gambling Commission publishes latest combined Health Survey
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

The Gambling Commission has published the latest combined Health Survey, which outlines participation, at-risk gambling and problem gambling rates across Great Britain. The data, drawn from field research carried out in 2016, shows that the rate of problem gambling across Britain was 0.7%

Tim Miller, Executive Director at the Gambling Commission said: “The Health Survey, along with all of our evidence and data, indicates that the problem gambling rate in Great Britain is stable. However, we want to see a sustained and significant reduction in the levels of problem gambling and will continue to drive the industry to build momentum towards this goal.

“Understanding the level of problem gambling is an important part of making gambling safer, but what this data won’t show is the extent of the harm someone may be experiencing, or the wider impact upon their families and their communities.”

Tim adds: “That is why, together with our expert advisers the Responsible Gambling Strategy Board, we recently published a ground-breaking approach to understanding the full range of harms gambling can have on society.”

This work, alongside the recently published research programme marks an important step in informing the direction of the next National Responsible Gambling Strategy, which will launch in April 2019. Comments on how the social cost of gambling-related harms can be measured and better understood, along with feedback on the research programme are welcomed by email: [email protected]

 

Key figures

  • 1.2% of gamblers were classed as problem gamblers (0.7% of the population) – this is statistically stable, and consistent with both 2012 and 2015 reports
  • 2.4% of people were classed as low risk gamblers, and 1.1% of people as moderate risk gamblers
  • Problem gambling was more prevalent among people who had participated in multiple gambling activities in the past year, than those that had just participated in one
  • 57% of adults (aged 16 and over) in Great Britain had gambled in the past year – this is down by 6% compared to 2015
  • Men (62%) are more likely to participate in gambling than women (52%)
    Most popular gambling activities were: National Lottery draws (41%), scratchcards (21%) and other lotteries (14%)
  • Gambling participation (excluding National Lottery draws only) was highest among 25 – 34 year olds
  • Gambling participation was lowest among non-drinkers (36%), followed by those who drank up to 14 units of alcohol per week (59%) and were highest for those who drank more than 14 units per week (69%)
  • Problem gambling rates were higher among those with probable mental ill health (according to the GHQ-12 score), than those that indicated no evidence of probable mental ill health.

Genting virtual challenge for cancer charity fundraiser
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

In a joint effort between its UK and Malta based teams, employees from leading casino operator Genting have been on a mission to run, walk and cycle their way across the globe (virtually) in a bid to raise money for charity.

Having set an initial target of 2000km – the distance between Genting’s UK and Malta offices – the teams collectively covered more than 10,000km and ultimately reached Genting’s parent company in Malaysia!

The challenge is a fundraiser for Dragonfly Cancer Trust, a UK charity supporting young cancer patients with no hope of a cure. To date, Genting employees have raised over £6,000.

Using the Nike Run Club app, more than 50 Genting employees came together to clock up the miles during the month of February.

Sanjeev Vadhera, Chair of Trustees at Dragonfly Cancer Trust, commented: “On behalf of the Board of Trustees at Dragonfly Cancer Trust, I would like to say a massive well done to each and every one of you who took part in this fantastic challenge.

“It is simply wonderful that your team of dedicated staff have come together during these difficult times and have collectively raised such an incredible amount of money.

“Your support comes at a time when young cancer patients are facing even more barriers due to the pandemic. The money you have raised will help to make their remaining time more comfortable and will provide them with opportunities to create lasting memories.”

Helen Brittain, Genting UK’s Chief Information Officer said: “It has been a brilliant team effort, with everyone coming together to help smash our original target. We’re very proud to be supporting such a fantastic charity like Dragonfly Cancer Trust and the work they do to support young cancer patients.”
