Young People and Gambling 2022

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


Overall experience of online gambling

A minority of young people have experienced some form of online gambling in the last 12 months.

Less than one in twenty 11 to 16 year olds had placed a bet on eSports or on a website or an app in the last 12 months (both 3 percent), while fewer still had played casino games online (2 percent). As few as 1 percent of young people had played National Lottery online instant win games or bingo online in the last 12 months.
