Gambling in the UK is a very widespread activity, with 47 per cent of adults in the 2019 Gambling Commission Survey reporting that they had gambled at some point in the last four weeks. Although gambling is by no means a new phenomenon, the digital age has changed the ways that people can gamble, and the UK Government has launched a review of the Gambling Act 2005 to ensure it reflects these transformations. Against this backdrop, the Policy Institute at King’s College London was commissioned by Action Against Gambling Harms (AGH) to understand better the available evidence around gambling harms. Our objective was to ascertain where there were gaps in the research base and to make recommendations about which avenues of research would be both feasible and valuable.
