Gaming machines including those in betting shops and licensed premises are regulated by the Gambling Act 2005.
On 31 October, the Government published a consultation about:
- maximum stakes and prizes that should be allowed for all gaming machines;
- how many gaming machines should be allowed in all licensed premises;
- what further social responsibility measures should be put in place to minimise the risk of gambling harm
The consultation will close on 23 January 2018, following which the Government will consider its final proposals.
