New interim findings from research conducted by the National Centre for Social Research (NatCen), in collaboration with Professor David Forrest and Professor Ian McHale (University of Liverpool), details for the first time the gambling habits of close to 140,000 active online gambling accounts in Britain.

The research, which looked at the use of active ‘gaming’ and betting accounts between July 2018 and June 2019, was commissioned by GambleAware to improve understanding of the online gambling market. It is the first time a dataset containing this level of detail on online gambling transactions has been collated for research purposes.
