Online casino searches at high during lockdown

Search interest in online casinos has hit an all-time high since lockdown began, data show.

Google Trends shows gambling has moved online amid the closure of physical gambling venues and cancellation of sports events.

Since 31 March, all online gambling operators have had to be registered with Gamstop.

Gamstop is a free service that allows gamblers to self-exclude from online gambling sites with one registration. They choose a minimum exclusion period of either six months, one year, or five years.

There has been a rise since lockdown began in people asking Gamstop for their self-exclusion to be reversed but once registered, the system does not allow them to cancel until the minimum period they originally chose, has expired.

In the past 30 days, searches for casinos not on Gamstop however have also increased, according to Google.

Google Trends is a website by Google that analyzes the popularity of top search queries in Google Search across various regions and languages. The website uses graphs to compare the search volume of different queries over time.
