Gambling in Ireland

The primary form of gambling in Ireland is the Irish lottery. Even though the gambling industry is experiencing certain trends, just like any other, the Irish seem to be loyal to the gambling classic – the lottery. According to the results of the survey, 56.7% of all participants have bought a lottery ticket or scratch card in person at some point last year, and 35% of them did so last month.

Only 3% decided to play the online lottery. However, this piece of information should be taken with a grain of salt – especially as the situation has significantly changed since the survey was taken. According to the Irish Times, online lottery providers are causing quite a headache to lotto operators. It’s expected that on a global level, online lottery wagers will rise from $29 billion in 2017 to $76 billion by 2022.

Lottery and Scratchcards

According to the Department of Health, most people who spent over €250 in the past year did so on lottery tickets and scratch cards. 11.2% of all surveyed participants got their nails dirty scratching silver foil on a ticket.

The same trend is noticed among both males and females. In addition to the lottery, males also tend to spend over €250 a year placing bets on sports at their favourite retail bookie (9.5%). 0.3% of females bet that much on the same category.

Sports betting is followed by horse racing. Free Bets in Ireland 3.4% of males placed bets worth over €250 in this category. On the other hand, female participants didn’t point to any other significant categories they consider worth their money – with a small exception of bingo. 1.6% of females stated they spent over €250 on playing bingo in person.

This isn’t surprising if we know how in Ireland, bingo is the most acceptable form of gambling. It is not considered betting, but a social event. Bingo is played in churches and community centres.
