GambleAware, the UK-based gambling watch dog, received £49.5 million (approximately $63.2 million) in voluntary donations for the fiscal year ending March 31st.

The majority (94%) of these donations came from the UK's four largest gambling operators: Flutter Entertainment (£18 million), Entain (£16.8 million), William Hill (£6 million), and bet365 (£5.8 million).

This year also marks the end of a four-year commitment between these four operators to gradually increase their donations to 1 percent of their gross gambling yield. GambleAware is uncertain about funding for the 2024-25 financial year because of the transition to a statutory levy, as outlined in last year’s white paper.

“While we await the implementation of the new statutory levy, donations from the voluntary funding system are key to ensure GambleAware can continue to deliver the essential gambling harm prevention and treatment programs we commission,” said Zoë Osmond, GambleAware’s CEO. “For many years, we have been calling for the introduction of a statutory levy on the gambling industry and we are pleased the government has committed to delivering this as part of the gambling white paper. However, during the transition period it is vital that steps continue to be taken to ensure there is no disruption to existing services and provisions in the wider system as they adapt to the new levy funding model.”
