Casino drop and win
Casino drop and win – April report
We are unable to publish a casino drop and win report for April 2020, as we have not received enough reports from casino operators providing data for this month. Read further information on official statistics reporting impacted by COVID-19.
Casino drop and win data is provided voluntarily by all casinos licensed in Great Britain and shows the amount of money exchanged for chips in a casino (drop) and the amount retained by the casino (win).
Drop and win information is provided through regulatory returns monthly and is based on casino games only (not gaming machines). The data is not split into the types of game played as information is considered to be commercially sensitive.
The latest data is published on the final Thursday of every month and is based on an updated rolling year average, showing figures for the previous 12 months.
The information published within the drop and win report is aimed primarily at those within the casino industry although it may also be of interest to international regulators, journalists, academic researchers, financial institutions, statisticians and local authorities.
About this drop and win data
Gambling businesses provide this data by the end of the following month. Data is then collated and analysed and a report produced in the month after this. So the figures are always three months behind.
About the casinos that provide the data
Premises-based casinos are not obliged to provide us with this data whether they have a licence under the 1968 Act or under the 2005 Act. Some of the London casinos are referred to as ‘high-end’, this term was agreed following discussion with the casino trade associations.
The casinos in each region change over time as casinos open and close. But for a list of the permitted areas see casino permitted areas.
