Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Gambling Market in the UK 2015-2019

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Gambling Market in the UK: Betfred Group, Gala Coral Group, Ladbrokes and William Hill

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Camelot Group, Genting UK, Paddy Power, Rank Group and Sportech

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Gambling has traditionally been dominated by the male population but now participants include women, young people, and the older population. This change in demographics is because of the change in perception about gambling. Apart from the core gambling activities, augmented product offerings such as amusement parks, gaming zones for children, and extension in tourist attractions made by vendors is another factor enabling the change in participant demographics in the gambling market in the UK. Gambling used to be considered as a wrong practice by a majority of people, but the rise in government involvement and rapidly changing regulations of gambling have changed people's perception. Hence, gambling is now accepted as a leisure or fun activity rather than an activity into which people get lured and ultimately end up losing their wealth. In the UK, women comprise more than 50% of the gambling population.”

According to the report, the gambling market in the UK enables the players to use virtual money, which has reduced the burden and risk of carrying cash. Payment options through virtual currency and online real cash transactions through payment portals are already implemented where the winning amount can be distributed as virtual money, which can then be used to play other games or redeemed for cash. This also helps vendors in tracking the spending history of customers. Another advantage that it offers is that of scalability as it can be implemented to handle a large gambling population. This would also give vendors the opportunity to create customized marketing plans.Further, the report states that stringent tax regulations are expected to affect the market during the forecast period.
