The online casino games sector and industry as a whole is an interesting one. With many different variables and statistics you might be interested to know about. Here at Slots Baby we’ve decided to conduct a little research of our own to let you in on some of these jaw dropping facts and figures. We took high-validity and reliable data from last years Gambling Industry Statistics Report to create an Infographic of our own on this topic.
The Facts of UK Gaming
Since we collected our research from a report filled with stats we knew we couldn’t include them all. So, we took a few of the most significant ones, figures that are relevant and we believe everyone will find interesting. For example, the total gross gambling yield from all UK based machines was a whopping £2.7 billion in 2016, up a total of 2.6% on the previous year. Providing evidence for the continued growth of the online gambling industry.
Furthermore, we also found in addition to this that the total number of gaming machines set up increased. There is now a total of 182,916 which was up by a grand total of 1.8%, again another significant increase. Which can only be accounted for and explained by the growing demand for games. However, one area that showed no change for gaming machines was the Gross Gambling Yield (GGY) which remained at 20%.
Our findings seem to show that the gaming machine industry is on the increase. The reasoning behind no change in market share may be thanks to other sectors of gambling are also on a continual increase. As people are seeing the fun and excitement that can be found from playing the best gambling games online.
