Request

I was wondering if you have the statistic for the percentage of casino revenue that comes from problem gamblers?

I know you have stats on the percent of problem gamblers in the UK. But I’d like to know how much money the casinos generate off these people.

Response

Dear Sir/Madam

Thank you for your request which has been processed under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA).

In your email you have requested the statistic for the percentage of casino revenue that comes from problem gamblers.

I can confirm that the Gambling Commission does not hold data on the percentage of revenue that is derived from problem gamblers for any particular gambling activity.

As such no information is held falling within the scope of your request.
