According to newly-released statistics from the UK’s tax authorities, the half-year to end September saw tax revenues from gambling 11 per cent higher at £1,619m, £164m up on the same period of last year

HMRC, the tax authority, said in a statement this week that most of the receipts on betting and gaming came from lottery duty at 30 per cent and remote gaming duty at 28 per cent, although receipts in both of those areas had actually fallen.

Gaming machine licence duty, gaming duty and bingo duty all increased, reflecting the reopening of betting venues after the pandemic lockdown.
