Making gambling fairer and safer

m) Segmental reporting

During the year the Commission's Board as 'Chief Operating Decision Maker' has determined that the Commission operated in three distinct material segments;

  • to regulate commercial gambling,
  • to regulate the current National Lottery, and
  • to commission the 4th National Lottery.

All three segments fall within one main geographical segment, Great Britain. The Commission has distinct sources of income for the three segments; licence fees for gambling regulation, grant-in-aid for National Lottery regulation, and National Lottery Commissioning. The segmental reporting format in note 2 reflects the Commission's management and internal reporting structure.

The Commission had previously reported the Horserace Betting Levy Board (HBLB) as a operating segment as it was intended that the HBLB would be incorporated into the Commission's activities. This has not transpired and there have been no transactions under the HBLB segment for 2019-20.
