Gambling Review - UK - June 2017
The UK’s retail gambling market enjoyed a year of accelerating value growth during 2016/17 on the back of continuing expansion in the lotteries and gaming machines segments. Continuation of that trend is threatened, however, by potential changes to machine regulation, any sustained pressure on household finances and an apparent slowdown in the pace at which multichannel strategies have been converting online players into venue customers. More positively, though, younger people are showing an increasing appetite for gambling participation, with operators who can offer games that are quick, easy and fun to play and share looking best placed to cash in.
For the purposes of this Report, Mintel has defined the UK retail gambling market as being comprised of:
- National Lottery draws, other lotteries (eg Health Lottery/People’s Postcode Lottery) and scratchcards;
- Betting on sports events (eg horseracing, football etc) and non-sports events (eg politics, TV reality shows etc);
- Casino games;
- Gaming machines and;
- Football pools.
