A useful benchmark for the future.

The UK Gambling Commission has published industry statistics for the period 1 April 2010 to 30 September 2014, with the final twelve months of the period providing a useful comparison benchmark for the future as one of the last sets of pre-point-of-consumption gambling statistics.

Highlights from the report include:

* Only 19% of UK online gambling revenue was attributable to UK-licensed operators;

* Just 15% of the market was claimed by UK-licensed operators;

* The overall UK gambling market (excluding the national lottery) was worth 7.1 billion, an increase of 5% over the preceding twelve month period;

* UK-licensed online gambling operators generated GGY of 1.35 billion, up 27% y-o-y; not far off the 1.62 billion generated by betting shop-based FOBTs;

* 46% of the UK market was attributed to land-based betting.

* Online sport betting market share was up 3% y-o-y to 19 percent;

* Online sports betting GGY rose 35% to 1.19 billion with football and tennis the main market drivers;
