Appendix M: Anecdotal Evidence of Problem Gambling
Since the launch of our stopthefobts.org website the campaign for Fairer Gambling has been receiving testimonial evidence from problem gamblers and bookmaking industry employees. Many of these contacts, due to either the implications of their addiction or concerns about their employment, have provided their name and contact details to us and permission to use their testimonials, but with the guarantee of anonymity.
A selection of these testimonials are enclosed below as further anecdotal evidence of the impact FOBTs have, firstly on players and secondly on those working within the industry.
