UKGC aids the British government in tackling problem gambling

19 Mar 2018

UKGC problem gamblingThe United Kingdom Gambling Commission is well-known for their contribution to the formation of effective frameworks for the regulation of the online gambling industry. The British government is well on its way to to review gaming machines and social responsibility measures with the recommendations put forward by the UKGC. The operation is mainly focused towards creating an effective framework for dealing with key problems such as problem gambling.

The report addressed key areas such as:

  • The maximum slot stake for Fixed Odds Betting Terminals, which UKGC suggests should be reduced to £2.
  • Adjusting the stake limit for non-slot games at a maximum of £30 to avoid having problem gamblers spending away too much money in a few bets.
  • Not allowing gaming machines to host multiple types of games in one session.
  • Tracking gambling activity in all gaming machine categories.
  • Applying all B2 machine protection regulations in both B1 and B3 categories for more effective handling of problem gambling.
  • Liaising with key industry experts towards applying a unified betting limitation framework, directly dependent on time and money parameters for player session termination.

The proposed framework will be reviewed by the government and has already been sent to the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport. Neil McArthur of UKGC made it clear that the Commission's recommendations serve exclusively as a consumer protection guide, introducing stake cuts together with a series of other regulations towards fighting problem gambling.
