Estimated annual FOBT losses

With even more clusters of betting shops cropping up across the UK, the rise of the FOBTs is rampant. UK punters are currently losing millions to FOBTs every year and the number is steadily increasing with each new year. Under the current legislation, UK betting shops are only permitted to have a maximum of four FOBTs per venue, a fact which has caused many betting shops to ‘cluster’ themselves in one location, often on one high street.

The infographic below details the streets in the UK that have the most betting shops and FOBTs along with the total estimated FOBT losses in that area.

Anonymous testimonial, March 2013

“I work for Betfred and we have been told to write to our MPs to stop the new FOBT regulations, telling us that we will all lose our jobs if they have to close the shops. We work on our own every day from 6pm-10pm and it can be terrifying!!
