Online gambling in Britain measured accurately for the first time, says commission.

The UK Gambling Commission released new figures Thursday saying they will paint an accurate picture of how much consumers in Britain spend on gambling online.

These are the first set of figures since the implementation of Britain's point-of-consumption tax came into effect and represent the five-month period from November 2014 to March 2015 for online and from April 2014 to March 2015 for non-remote.

Key online market figures in terms of total gross gaming yield (GGY) per sector for the UK customers include:

- Betting - 472.7 million

- Betting Exchange - 55.66 million

- Bingo - 82.62 million

- Casino - 834.25 million

- Pool Betting - 6.26 million

Total gross gaming revenue for the remote sector was 1.45 billion.

In terms of online betting gross gaming yield for the UK customers only, unsurprisingly football leads the pack with 168.44 million, followed by dogs with 9.26 million, cricket with 4.79 million and Financials with 3.10 million.

Remote casino gross gaming yield for the UK customers only was led by slots with 532.54 million, followed by table games 140.34, card games 67.70, Other 57 million and Peer to Peer at 36.67 million.
