e-Sports - UK Gambling Commission's annual report highlights skin gambling for first time

Regulatory body finds 11% of 11-16 year olds have gambled with video game skins.

UK Gambling Commission has published their annual report on gambling habits and practices in the UK, and for the first time the industry regulator looked at the practice of skin betting and specifically how the practice effects 11-16 year olds.

In their findings as reported by the BBC, the Commission surveyed just over two and half thousand 11-16 year olds and found that 55% of them were 'aware of' the practice of betting with in-game items or skins, and that 11% of them had indulged in the practice itself.
