National Strategic Assessment 2020

This report sets out our latest assessment of the issues we face and the risks that gambling poses to consumers and the public

Key risks and issues

Key issues and risks

  • Accessibility of online gambling: The 24/7 availability of online gambling has changed how and when consumers gamble
  • Anonymity within premises-based gambling: Most land based gambling is conducted without identification of customers limiting the scope for player-centric controls
  • Advertising: Gambling advertising must be socially responsible, it must not be targeted at under 18s, and its content must not encourage irresponsible gambling behaviour.
