The Attest Brand Index is a platform agnostic measure of a brand’s total brand equity in the gaming & gambling sector, as determined by real consumers.

What do we mean by ‘platform agnostic’? We mean the results are not influenced by any particular method of obtaining them, such as looking only at social media mentions, or brand search terms. This reduces bias and provides a much more accurate view of a brand’s strength in any given category.

Learn more about why we believe this is the best methodology for Brand Intelligence.

To determine the 2018 Q2 Gaming & Gambling Brand Index, we look at three things.

  1. Percentage of unprompted brand recall within a named category e.g. ‘Gaming & Gambling’ ‘Snacks’ or ‘Entertainment’
  2. How likely a person is to purchase your particular brand (purchase intent)
  3. How likely a person is to recommend your brand (Net Promoter Score)

Our data is gathered every quarter from an online survey sent to a nationally representative panel of 1,000 UK consumers aged 18-65.

Looking at the top brands again, the average Total Brand Equity score is 61.05, again up from Q1’s average of 26. Whereas last quarter, Ladbrokes was the overall leader with a score of 645, Sky Bet has now taken the crown. Sky Bet has a total brand equity of 450 helped by its better-than-average Purchase Intent of 49%. The median total brand equity is 20. Just like in Q1, Betfred’s high brand recall but negative Brand Strength score means it has the most negative Brand Equity, at -230.

The overall Gaming & Gambling industry Net Promoter Score is a – 23.3%. When we did the first Gaming & Gambling Brand Index, the NPS of -27.7% was the first net-negative industry NPS we’ve seen. This has risen, which is a positive sign, but there is much work to be done to improve people’s overall perception of the industry. It is heartening to see that amongst the top 13 brands, average NPS rose to -12.98.
