GambleAware, a charity dedicated to researching, preventing, and treating gambling harm, has released a report providing information on the donations it received for the 12-month period ending on March 31, 2023.

The company’s recent figures indicate that it received £46.5 million ($58.2 million) in donations between 2022 and 2023. This represents a 34% increase compared to the prior year period, when donations amounted to £34.7 million ($43.4 million).

At present, companies and groups that make profits from gambling are required to donate at least 0.1% of their annual gross gambling yield (GGY) to GambleAware. For organizations earning less than £250,000 ($313,000) per year, the minimum donation is £250 ($313). Notably, the donations received during the 2022-2023 period were primarily from the four largest UK gambling operators: Entain, Flutter, William Hill, and Bet365, which collectively accounted for 92% of the total contributions.

Donations are likely to continue growing

According to GambleAware’s recent report, the four largest UK gambling operators, Entain, Flutter, William Hill and Bet365, contributed a total of £42.9 million ($53.7 million) out of the £46.5 million ($58.2 million) in donations for the 2022-2023 period. This amounts to 92% of the total donations. GambleAware explained that this increase was due to the operators’ commitment to raise the percentage of their GGY they contribute in donations from 0.1% to 1% by 2023/2024.
