Maximum stake on fixed-odds betting terminals to be cut from £100
This piece of news has been hard to hide from in the closing days of October. The long-awaited DCMS triennial review has announced a 12-week consultation on a range of proposals. The options for the FOBT maximum stake are £50, our objective stake of £2, or an intermediate amount of £20 or £30.
The 12-week consultation period launched on October 31st to ‘ensure stronger protections around online gambling’, alongside a package of measures intended to promote responsible gambling.
