British bookmakers await FOBT review results

Bookmakers, operating on the regulated British market, will find out the review results this week, conducted by the government on betting terminals with fixed odds (FOBT).

During some period of time, the machines became subject of debates in the United Kingdom and a number of companies and politicians demanded, that the maximum bet would be decreased from 100 pounds (113 Euros/131 US dollars) to two pounds sterling.

The  government report must be published in the beginning of this week after which, a 12-week consultation will follow, which will determine the final decision.
