Whether ever prompted to gamble by adverts and promotions
Among young people who have ever seen or heard any gambling advert or sponsorship, the vast majority (81 percent) said that it did not prompt them to spend money on gambling when they did not otherwise plan to.
However, 7 percent say that the advert or sponsorship did prompt them to gamble, increasing to 13 percent of 11 to 17 year olds who have spent their own money on gambling in the last 7 days.
These figures remain unchanged in comparison to 2022.
