Crunch Time for Fixed Odds Betting Terminals (FOBT’s)
There has a furore over these betting terminals since the UK Government ordered an investigation and report. Such has been the anger since the report was completed, the Association of British Bookmakers is now calling for an enquiry by the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards. They claim the report was deeply flawed and possibly even biased.
For those of you who do not know what FOBT’s are they are electronic gaming machines. They are widely found in Bookmakers shops all over the UK. They can be used to gamble while playing roulette, blackjack, slot games and virtual racing. Referred to by some as the crack cocaine of gambling the UK watchdog GambleAware has long condemned them. They have been blamed for destroying communities and families due to their addictive powers and high wagering potential.
