Being stopped from gambling
All young people, regardless of gambling experience, were asked whether they had ever been stopped from gambling because they were too young.
If we exclude those who have never tried to gamble, overall 12 percent of young people reported being stopped from gambling because of their age; most commonly from gambling in a premises (9 percent), rather than online (5 percent).
Boys were more likely to have been stopped than girls (15 percent compared with 10 percent) as were young people with experience of gambling in the last seven days (18 percent); typically from gambling in a premises (13 percent).Previous section
