CGS Survey Results Show Increase in Number of Thai GamblersReading Time: 2 minutes

 

A survey by the Centre for Gambling Studies (CGS) has found that more than 700,000 first-time punters gambled this year, with the youngest being only seven years old.

CGS director Nualnoi Trirat said the centre has been studying the gambling habits of Thais across the country since 2017.

The study found that 30.42 million Thais, equivalent to 57% of the country’s population, engaged in some sort of gambling. This was an increase of 1.4 million gamblers since the study began in 2017. Of the 30.42 million gamblers surveyed this year, 733,000 were 15-18 years old or about 20% of people in this age range; 3.05 million were aged 19-25 years (46%) and 3.3 million gamblers were 60 or older (42%).

“Our study found that more than 700,000 people who gambled this year were first-time gamblers and the youngest of them was only seven years old,” Nualnoi Trirat said.

“In terms of money generated by gambling activities, football betting came out top with about 160 billion baht circulating each year, followed by the underground lottery with 153 billion baht, and government lottery with 150 billion baht,” Nualnoi said.

According to Ms. Nualnoi, news coverage of government lottery winners is pushing more and more Thais to try their luck.

“The Government Lottery Office prints more than 100 million lottery tickets for each draw, which far outstrips the country’s total population of about 68 million people,” she said.

“We believe access to gambling must be tightened and we urge the government to come up with policies which do not promote such activities in society,” Supreeda Adulyanont, manager of the Thai Health Promotion Foundation said.

Supreeda said Thailand should follow other countries’ examples and set up a panel tasked with preventing occasional gamblers from becoming gambling addicts.

“[The government] should also offer services to wean addicts off their gambling habit and provide assistance to the gamblers’ families,” Supreeda added.

Italian VLT Market Suffers Setback due to New Rules

Italian VLT Market Suffers Setback due to New RulesReading Time: < 1 minute

 

The Video Lottery Terminal (VLT) market of Italy is suffering from the major setback as they have to comply with any restrictions imposed.

Italian gaming company Gamenet reported that VLT revenue of the first two weeks of 2020 has reduced by one third as compared to the same time period of last year.

According to the new rule, players need to insert the government-issued health card to access the VLT machine. This has been done to restrict the involvement of the youth accessing the machine. Many believe that this has been done in order to monitor the signs of problem gambling behaviour. However, the government denies this. Some of the operators have also complained that this has been done to force away tourists and other residents who do not have government health cards.

As per a local TV station, one of the operators was found giving access to the VLT to the tourists who do not have the health card. However, they had a special card to access the VLT machine and that has been termed as a loophole to the system.

There has been more set back on the VLT operators due to tax increase on VLT and Amusement with prizes (AWP). It is being said that the players have started losing interest in the VLT and also the machines had to be taken offline to reconfigure the necessary changes.
