Most popular UK remote gambling activity is the National Lottery Draw
The U.K. Gambling commission's latest quarterly Gambling Participation survey results are in, showing once again that remote (online) gambling by UK players has not increased since last year, and that most internet punters bet on the National Lottery. 
The latest survey studied 7000 respondents and found that 54.3 percent of them had participated in some form of gambling (2009: 55.2 percent) and of that 54.3 percent only 10.5 percent had participated in internet or remote gambling.
The omnibus surveys were conducted by ICM Research, a member of the British Polling Council, telephonically and the final report is based on two separate sets of questions. 
The first set of questions measured participation in all types of gambling activity (including remote gambling) and the second set measured participation in remote forms of gambling (gambling through a computer, mobile phone or interactive/digital TV). 
Each survey is conducted once a quarter (in March, June, September and December) with a nationally representative sample (in terms of age, gender, social classification and region) of adults (over 18-year-olds).
