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.
