    Default Impact Of Covid-19 - September 2020 GB Report

    From the UKGC:

    The latest data for September shows:

    • The online market grew, with a month-on-month increase of 3% in gross gambling yield (GGY), and a 7% increase in active accounts. The main driver for this was real event betting – which saw 15% growth in GGY and a 14% increase in active accounts – and is likely to have been boosted by the return of Premier League football
    • The average session length for online slots remained steady at 21 minutes. There was a 3% decrease in the number of online slots sessions lasting longer than an hour
    • Licensed betting operators also experienced month on month growth across some metrics, with increases of 7% in bets/spins placed and 11% in GGY (to 187m) likely to be impacted by the re-opening of all shops and the return of the Premier League
    • At the same time, we are releasing further consumer research which shows the broader impact of Covid-19 on people and provides further insights into why some people have increased or decreased their gambling activity since the first lockdown

    No doubt the tabloid headlines will be that gambling is spiralling out of control...

    Oh, great article, thank you so much for sharing with us!

    Why do you think that the tabloid headlines will be that gambling is spiraling out of control?

    Anything that suggests gambling has increased at any point during covid seems to be getting bad press at the moment, easy target to attack.

    Interesting statistics. I would have thought there was an increase in slots as well compared to what is mentioned.

    Agree, UK tabloids will eventually exploit the headlines. LOL ...
