Gambling Commission reports online wagering year-on-year showed a 1% decline.

The UK Gambling Commission's latest gambling participation review conducted by ICM Research over the four quarters ended 31 March 2014 shows that online wagering actually declined year-on-year by a percentage point.

The main gambling channel for Brits remained the National Lottery (41% of respondents), although there has been a y-o-y 3% decrease in the number of players wagering.

In a general gambling sense over the four week survey period, 56% of respondents said they had gambled. Breaking this sample down by gender, 61% were male and 51% female.

Of the 56% of respondents who said they had gambled in the preceding four weeks, just 16% said their gambling activity had been online, representing a decline of 1% year-on-year, Again broken down by gender, this small percentage of virtual punters was predominantly male (21% and female (11 percent).

Interestingly, only 17% of respondents said they had gambled both online and in land based facilities.

The overwhelming majority of UK respondents (71 percent) continue to prefer land-based retail gambling shops or bookie windows when it comes to placing their bets.
