Measuring the economic contribution of the British Betting Industry: Second edition
The full picture
This report, conducted by Deloitte on behalf of the Association of British Bookmakers (ABB), provides an update of the January 2010 report 'The Full Picture’ to demonstrate the value of the Betting Industry to the British economy.
The report shows that the industry now directly accounts for £2.3 billion in Gross Value Added (GVA) and 38,800 full-time equivalent jobs.
Over the three year period since the previous research was conducted, the economy, and betting, has continued to weather the storm. Despite this resilience, over this period the British Betting Industry has contracted by 1,900 direct FTE jobs and £0.7 billion in direct GVA terms.
