Now I knew that gambling industry makes a lot of money and I am curious to know how much on average is gambled. The thing is that it varies from year to year and has been steadily increasing for many years now. The statistics that I have found are from the UK, so this is a relatively small percentage of the global market but gambling is very popular here and disposable income is quite high. The statistics that I found also include the total number of spins put through online slot machines, time spent playing and total number of online gambling accounts. It is well worth a quick look through to see just how much people are gambling.



Please note that this refers to quarter one (Q1) in the financial year 2022-2023 (91 days) and quarter four (Q4) in the financial year 2021-2022 (90 days).

The latest operator data shows:

  • online total Gross Gambling Yield (GGY) in Q1 (April to June) was £1.2 billion, an increase of nearly 1% from Q4 (January to March). The overall number of total bets/spins increased 5% from Q4 to Q1, the average monthly active accounts1 increased 5%
  • slots GGY increased 4% to nearly £565 million between Q4 and Q1. The number of spins increased 5% to 18.7 billion, while the average monthly active accounts increased 4% to 3.6 million per month
  • the number of online slots sessions lasting longer than an hour increased by 5% (to 8.4 million) between Q4 and Q1. The average session length lasted 17 minutes (a decrease of one minute), with approximately 7% of all sessions lasting more than one hour
  • LBO GGY increased 6% to £584 million between Q4 and Q1, while the number of total bets and spins increased 3% to 3.3 billion.                                                                   (SOURCE)
