Fixed Odds Betting Terminals (FOBTs), or B2s are touch screen roulette machines found in betting shops across Britain, on which gamblers can play casino style games with £100 maximum stake per spin.

If these easily accessible, high-stake, high-speed, hardcore gaming machines have affected you, a family member or friend, get in touch and take action.

The Campaign for Fairer Gambling wants the maximum stake on FOBTs reduced to £2 spin to bring them in line with all other gaming machines in the UK. It is aiming to gather public support to put pressure on the Government to take action on the “crack cocaine of gambling” – which are available in betting shops on every high street.
