    41% of people think gambling is associated with crime?
    In the UK? Really? With all the registered companies in the high street?

    What percentage associate banking with crime then ?

    Pretty good topic! Thanks for share! Very important for business trying to impact the UK gambling market.

    26% of gamblers follow gambling companies on social media (32% in year to December 2016)


    This number gives us an idea of how the social networks can impact our business.

    Also very important to note, 4k surveys seems like a decent public for this kind of study.

    Surveys are conducted in March June, September and December with approximately 1,000 interviews conducted per quarter

    You know what; it would have helped if they'd mention the living areas where they took the survey from.

    To be fair, they may have a point. I once 'accidently' shoplifted a packet of polo mints as a schoolboy and now dabble in the gambling industry.
