8-3 CGS Survey Results Show Increase in Number of Thai GamblersReading Time: 2 minutes

 

A survey by the Centre for Gambling Studies (CGS) has found that more than 700,000 first-time punters gambled this year, with the youngest being only seven years old.

CGS director Nualnoi Trirat said the centre has been studying the gambling habits of Thais across the country since 2017.

The study found that 30.42 million Thais, equivalent to 57% of the country’s population, engaged in some sort of gambling. This was an increase of 1.4 million gamblers since the study began in 2017. Of the 30.42 million gamblers surveyed this year, 733,000 were 15-18 years old or about 20% of people in this age range; 3.05 million were aged 19-25 years (46%) and 3.3 million gamblers were 60 or older (42%).

“Our study found that more than 700,000 people who gambled this year were first-time gamblers and the youngest of them was only seven years old,” Nualnoi Trirat said.

“In terms of money generated by gambling activities, football betting came out top with about 160 billion baht circulating each year, followed by the underground lottery with 153 billion baht, and government lottery with 150 billion baht,” Nualnoi said.

According to Ms. Nualnoi, news coverage of government lottery winners is pushing more and more Thais to try their luck.

“The Government Lottery Office prints more than 100 million lottery tickets for each draw, which far outstrips the country’s total population of about 68 million people,” she said.

“We believe access to gambling must be tightened and we urge the government to come up with policies which do not promote such activities in society,” Supreeda Adulyanont, manager of the Thai Health Promotion Foundation said.

Supreeda said Thailand should follow other countries’ examples and set up a panel tasked with preventing occasional gamblers from becoming gambling addicts.

“[The government] should also offer services to wean addicts off their gambling habit and provide assistance to the gamblers’ families,” Supreeda added.

Asia Pioneer Entertainment Holdings Limited has pledged to support the largest global environmental movement event – “Earth Hour” by turning off all unnecessary power and lights at 8:30p.m. on 28th Mar, 2020. It is the second year in a row that APE has joined this meaningful event.

The “Earth Hour” event was started by World Wildlife Fund (WWF) since 2007. Until now, more than 180 countries participate on this event every year. Thousands of landmarks across the world, including the Eiffel Tower, Sydney Opera House, Tower Bridge, etc., switch off the lights to raise the importance of protecting the nature. Ever since APE joined this symbolic “lights-out” event in Mar 2019, they have also taken a series of other measures such as decreasing the waste of paper and water. The Company is determined to take more actions in the future that will contribute to making the environment better.

“We received great support from our staff on last year’s event, besides turning off the unnecessary energy in the office, some of our team’s families also joined the event by switching off the lights at their own homes. This is the second year that APE participates at the “Earth Hour” event and we want to express APE’s commitment on providing a better environment by joining this event, and we encourage our staff and their family to join this event, like they did last year.” said Mr. Herman Ng, Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director of APE.

SIS (Sports Information Services) has today announced the move to close down all non-essential services and to furlough a significant number of staff effective immediately.

With the suspension of almost all live racing worldwide and the closure of a significant number of worldwide retail betting outlets, SIS has taken this action to protect its long term future and to be ready for the resumption of normal service for customers and partners when it becomes appropriate.

In this interim period, SIS continues to supply online content to operators while that content is live. All services to retail operators will be suspended.

Richard Ames, CEO of SIS, said: “SIS is moving into an interim period of hibernation in these extraordinary times. I am pleased to be able to confirm that our intention is to come back just as strongly as before and to be back up and running to serve the needs of our customers as soon as live racing content returns to action.

“We are taking this action to protect the business and to preserve the jobs of our hard-working team. I thank each of them for their fantastic commitment to continuing to service our content partners and customers throughout the last challenging weeks and look forward to welcoming them back into the business as soon as possible.”
