UK: Gambling sites centred in poorer areas, study finds

Online gambling

According to new research, the UK’s most deprived areas have ten times the number of betting shops as the country’s most affluent areas.

A full 21% of gambling establishments are located in the bottom tenth of the country in terms of deprivation.

Meanwhile, research from the University of Bristol says, only 2% of sites are in top 10% of least deprived areas.

The number has been declining in recent years. Still, there are still more gambling sites in Britain than shops run by the big eight supermarket chains combined.
