Although online gambling traveled and flourished across different countries of the world, has a prominent influence on the UK. Unforeseen, online gambling continues to drive the gaming market in the country, as per the new figures revealed by the UK Gambling Commission, which is the regulator of all gambling activities in the country.
The UK Gambling Commission publishes industry statistics in May and November every year, and gives an insight into the performance of all industry sectors. The gambling market in the UK attained a milestone of £13.7 billion (USD 18.2 billion), recording a 10 percent growth rate in gambling revenues. Between April 2016 to March 2017, the gambling industry’s revenue increased by 1.8% from what it was in the same accounting period a year before.
