GC Record Gambling Activity Rises In July 2021 And GGY Falls
GB Gambling Commission reported iGaming Vertical’s online gambling activity and financial results in July 2021. The committee released the data in the latest casino news.
In July, the UK online gambling market was affected by pandemic-related deregulation and major sporting events, the EURO 2020 and Olympic Games.
The UK gambling authority saw an overall increase of 5% in bets and spins in the iGaming segment compared to June 2021, while the number of active gamblers remained at the same level. The increase was mainly due to increased activity in slot games and online casino verticals (up 6% month-on-month in each niche). However, as the UEFA Championship ended on July 11, the number of bets on actual events decreased. The total number of bets was from 272m to 252m, down 7% from the previous month, and the number of bets on sporting events was down 4%. 슬롯
In July, there were more than 1 million primarily automated customer interactions, up 1% from June 2021. And the average session of the slot game lasted 19 minutes.
Online GGY dips due to low profits from betting,According to UKGC’s data, online gambling profits have also declined by 8% from the figures recorded in June. A £456m drop in July’s GGY is mainly attributed to the low profits from wagering on live events (a 19% decline from June 2021). At the same time, the GC has recorded a 17 percent rise in gatherings from betting on eSport and a 4 percent increase in GGY from slot games.
