Report Summary

The UK Casinos report 2024 provides an expert analysis of the casino industry in the UK. This market report contains UK casinos market dynamics, including market share and a five-year forecast, consumer insights, and innovation and marketing trends.

Key Issues Covered in this Report

  • The impact of the cost of living crisis on casino gaming.
  • Threats and opportunities presented by changes in market regulation.
  • The implications for casino gaming of shifts in working habits and leisure preferences.
  • How casinos can grow their customer base.
  • Crossover potential between video gaming and online casino play.
  • How people view casinos in comparison to other gambling venues.

UK Casino Industry – Current Landscape

The cost of living crisis remains a drag on land-based casinos’ post-pandemic recovery as continuing consumer caution limits their willingness to visit and spend. Online casinos are better insulated by their position as a trading-down option for people seeking cheaper entertainment at home.

  • UK casino market size: UK adults spent close to £5 billion on regulated casino gambling in 2022/23.

What’s Next for the UK Casino Market?

Forthcoming changes in gambling regulation pose the biggest risk to the remote segment through affordability checks and stake limits for online slots. Land-based venues face a different threat in competition from adult gaming centres (AGCs) that have a sharpening eye on casino customers.

New technologies can unlock new long-term growth in both segments. Leaning into the video game industry could transform online casino experiences, while the (longer-term) possibility of RNG-based gaming could dramatically expand the variety and nature of electronic products in the land-based sector.
