Definitive look at Brit betting builds on two previous research studies

The British Gambling Commission has announced that it will soon release its latest statistical studies on British internet gambling behaviour with the third in its British Gambling Prevalence Surveys, research which includes the incidence of problem gambling in the country.

The British Gambling Prevalence Survey 2010 builds on the two previous gambling prevalence surveys (published in 2000 and 2007), and collates a wide range of gambling related data to inform policy development.

In particular it:

* Measures the prevalence of participation in all forms of commercial and private gambling

* Estimates the prevalence of problem gambling

* Investigates factors associated with gambling and explores contextual elements, such as attitudes to gambling and what motivates people to gamble

* Provides comparisons between pre- and post-implementation of the Gambling Act 2005

* Identifies a population of gamblers who could be invited to participate in future research

"The findings of the BGPS will be used by the Commission to help develop policy for the regulation of gambling and to advise the Secretary of State on gambling issues," a spokesperson said this week. "It will also provide information on gambling to the industry, problem gambling charities and other key stakeholders."

The new BGPS was conducted by the National Centre for Social Research, in collaboration with gambling experts Dr Rachel Volberg, Professor Mark Griffiths and Professor Jim Orford.

Fieldwork on the BGPS 2010 was completed in early summer, with a sample of over 7,500 respondents achieved. The peer reviewed BGPS report will be published on Tuesday 15 February 2011.

At present, gambling at online casinos, poker rooms, sportsbooks and other gambling sites is legal and regulated. Licences are issued through the UK and certain offshore jurisdictions to operators complying with the UK Gambling Commission "Whitelist" standards, although the way licences are issued is currently under review (Feb 2010). Unlike in the USA, there is no tax on winings from gambling in the UK whether it be online or offline.
