New research conducted by Ireland Thinks on behalf of Lottoland reveals that a majority of Irish people are against increased regulation in the gambling sector. Out of the 1,387 individuals surveyed, 66% admitted to engaging in some form of gambling. Surprisingly, less than a third of them were aware of the new legislation being proposed by the government.
When it comes to the potential restrictions on gambling in Ireland, 19% of current bettors expressed their intentions to seek alternative methods of gambling. This aligns with a recent PWC analysis which highlights the rise of black market gambling in other countries facing similar restrictions.
Mike Kirwan, the Vice President of Lottoland, emphasized the importance of regulating the sector but also advocated for a sensible approach that doesn’t hinder individuals’ ability to bet responsibly. He urged Minister Browne to take into consideration the concerns of the industry and ensure that the upcoming legislation includes clear and robust definitions to effectively protect consumers.
