UK Remote Gambling is the largest combined sector at £5.7 billion

The United Kingdom Gambling commission publishes Gambling industry statistics twice a year (in May and November) and provides the latest information on each sector.

The latest statistics cover the period between April 2019 – March 2020. Industry Statistics report on the size and shape of the gambling industry in Great Britain.

This report provides an overview of Gross Gambling Yield (GGY) by sector, along with the numbers of licensed operators and premises. It is based on data reported by the operators the UKGC licences and regulates.

The UKGC notes that a change in regulations reducing maximum stakes from £100 to £2 for Category B2 machines took effect in April 2019. This publication includes the first financial year of data submitted since the change of regulations.
