October 20 2017

A fairly quiet week, but the industry is still allowing vulnerable people to lose everything;

  • Bookmakers are in big trouble if the government review goes against them
  • Nobody wins the gambling industry ensures this
  • Finally the Tories are seeing that FOBTs are damaging
  • Concerns over bookies now buying into football club projects
  • Man with learning difficulties is allowed to lose all his money in bookies

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.
