FOBTs APPG

Great to attend the Fixed Odds Betting Terminals (FOBTs) AGM yesterday and hear abut proposals to reduce the maximum FOBT stake to £2.

FOBTs allow punters to stake £100 every 20 seconds on electronic versions of casino games such as roulette, but in a low supervision high street bookie environment.

I recently obtained figures which show that a staggering £2,029,404 million was lost on these machines in Cumbernauld, Kilsyth and Kirkintilloch East over a 12 month period.
