Another shocking week including a regulated company associated with crime; the influence of lobbyists in parliament and another fine for allowing people to gamble with stolen money:

  • Department for Culture, Media & Sport is meeting too many times with bookies
  • Tory MPs take the side of bookies in FOBT debate
  • The fixed odds betting review is very murky
  • Yet again bookies found wanting with crime
  • The FOBTs debate from all sides
  • Greater regulation is coming following the fines
  • Bet365 profits continue to increase at an alarming rate
  • Should the affiliate betting industry be reigned in
  • Gambling Commission are trying to clamp down on the industry
  • An incredible story about UK gambling regulation or the lack of it

The following are all the links to the media coverage proving we’re not making it up.

ps:  Does NOT include all the media coverage of violence and robberies in betting shops.
