SEE HOW MANY FOBTs ARE NEAR YOU?
Fixed Odds Betting Terminals (FOBTs) are now firmly on the news agenda, but this campaign isn’t just about news coverage – it is about gathering public support so we can put pressure on the Government to do something about the “crack cocaine of gambling” available in betting shops on every high street.
If FOBTs have affected you, or you know a family member or friend who has suffered because of these easily accessible, high-stake, high-speed, hardcore gaming machines, get in touch and tell us your story.
FOBT’s maximum stakes could be reduced from £100 down to £2, in line with all other Category B machines, without primary legislation. The Department for Culture, Media & Sport has the power to do this RIGHT NOW and make these changes throughout every betting shop in the UK.
