98% of UK Brits have gambled ‘at least once’ before
Findings from our recent study of over 2,000 adults show how most people (98%) have gambled at least once in their lifetime. The data also shows how 2.5% of UK adults (1,263,210 people) said they would willingly give up their privacy for the chance to be in the news and on television if they won a seven-figure jackpot, and men are twice as likely to seek lottery-found-fame compared to women (3.4% vs 1.8%).When we asked ‘what would most likely persuade you to announce your lottery win to the public’, the most common responses were:
1. It would be pointless to remain anonymous (12.3%)
2. Recognition for a large charitable donation (5.9%)
3. To show others that winning is possible (5.8%)
4. To get help with managing my finances (5.6%)
5. To draw attention to a business that I might set up with the winnings (5.3%)
More men than women would go public if they were to win the lottery (11% of men would go public in comparison to 8% of women). Despite having to be ‘in it to win it’, over a third (34%) do not play the lottery, and those that do so are most likely to play once a week (16%). In total, the world’s ten biggest lottery wins of the 21st century have totaled a whopping $3,989,005,710.
