t’s been over 5 years since we established Stop the FOBTs, the campaign to reduce the maximum stake on Fixed Odds Betting Terminals from £100 every 20 seconds to £2 a spin.
The Campaign for Fairer Gambling was founded by Derek Webb because the objectives of the 2005 Gambling Act were not being delivered:
not all gambling is fair and open, many forms of gambling are associated with crime, and many more do harm to the young and the vulnerable.
But in terms of these three metrics, FOBTs are the most significant aberration, which is why the government has taken the evidence-based decision to reduce the stake to £2 a spin.
