From online gambling to FOBTs, we want to hear about the industry from those who work in it – as well as those who are placing bets
Britons lost an estimated £12.6bn through gambling last year, the equivalent of almost £300 per person. What’s more, 48% of people questioned by the Gambling Commission admitted to gambling at least once in the previous month.
This comes at a time when online gambling is soaring in popularity. People can now gamble from home or while on the go without having to go to a specific venue. They can bet on football matches or games. However, according to academics we don’t know enough about the effects on gambling on those who do it.
