The data and why we collected it
The Gambling Commission collected data on safer gambling algorithm triggers, stakes, session length and losses and payment methods on slots play from seven operators.
Where operator algorithms placed consumers into more than the four categories that were specified, operators were requested to make judgement to place into the most appropriate category.
The data was collected in April 2021 in order to inform our advice to Government and ongoing policy development. Data on payment providers covers the period from February to April 2021.
The aim of the data collection was to help determine whether there is a relationship between high-staking levels, and other indicators, and players experiencing harm.
