Help Stop The FOBTs – submit your evidence to the consultation

Print this page

On 31st October 2017, the government published a consultation that covers proposals to:

  • Maximum stakes and prizes for all categories of gaming machines permitted under the Gambling Act 2005.
  • Social responsibility measures for the industry as a whole to minimise the risk of gambling-related harm, including on gambling advertising, online gambling, gaming machines and research, education and treatment.

We are now well into the 12-week consultation period which will run until 23rd January, following which the government will consider its final proposal on gambling measures, including the maximum FOBT stake.

The Campaign objective is to reduce the maximum FOBT stake from £100 to £2 per spin. You can help us achieve this objective by submitting evidence to the government for examination in the consultation. To submit evidence, you need only follow the instructions to fill in a short multiple choice form, which will only take a few minutes to complete.

Both organisations and individuals are able to submit evidence for examination online. You can do this by:
