During the last five financial years HMRC received the following payments for Bingo Duty from UK taxpayers:

2014/15 = £47.0 million

2015/16 = £33.9 million

2016/17 = £34.5 million

2017/18 = £32.4 million

2018/19 = £33.4 million

HMRC publish information on total Bingo Duty receipts within the ‘UK Betting and Gaming Statistics’ publication: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/uk-betting-and-gaming-statistics

No disaggregation of Bingo Duty receipts paid by individuals and organisations in Northern Ireland is available as this information is not recorded on trader returns or cash receipts.
