Young People and Gambling 2022: Official statistics

Gambling Commission report produced by Ipsos on young people and their gambling behaviour, attitudes and awareness in 2022.


Young people’s active involvement with lottery products

Overall, 2 percent of all young people spent their own money on a lottery product in the last 12 months. 1 percent had spent their own money on buying either a National Lottery scratchcard, a National Lottery draw based game or National Lottery online instant win games.

The proportion of young people who were actively involved and spent their own money on National Lottery games in the last 12 months is slightly higher among those who have seen family members gamble (3 percent compared with 1 percent of those who have not).

No other variations were observed.
