British Gambling Prevalence Survey 2010

This report, 'British Gambling Prevalence Survey 2010' carried out by the National Centre for Social Research sets out the results of the British Gambling Prevalence Survey (BGPS) 2010, the third nationally representative survey of its kind.

With previous studies undertaken in 1999 and 2007, the aim of the survey is to provide data on participation in all forms of gambling in Great Britain, the prevalence of problem gambling, attitudes to gambling and to explore a range of associations with gambling behaviour.

The 2010 study is the first in this series to be conducted after the full implementation of the Gambling Act 2005. Therefore a further objective was to, where possible; provide comparisons before and after implementation of the Act.

Findings include that:

  • 73% of the adult population participated in some form of gambling activity within the past year, representing a return to rates observed in 1999.

  • The most popular activities were the National Lottery Draw (59%), a slight increase from 2007.

  • Excluding those who had only gambled on the National Lottery Draw, 56% of adults participated in some other form of gambling in the last year.
