The UK Gambling Commission has published further data showing how the easing of the Covid-19 lockdown impacted the gambling behaviour in Great Britain. The data reflects March, April, May, June and July and covers both online and in-person gambling.
July saw a slight month on month decline in the amount spent by consumers on online gambling. The amount spent remained higher than pre-lockdown levels driven by the pent-up demand for sports betting on popular events.
Additionally, with high street betting shops now reopening, the Commission will monitor to understand levels of engagement with retail gambling products as more people begin to return to town and city centres.
