Most do, with GambleAware receiving £9.4m in 2017/18.

Our response outlined a number of initiatives for improving the current system, increasing access to services and strengthening the evidence base. The Government does not consider that introducing a statutory levy is necessary or appropriate at this stage.</ins></p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>High stakes gambling’ is a relative term and may be open to different interpretation. The Gambling Act 2005 and associated regulations establish the types and levels of gambling permitted in a range of licensed environments and the controls required to be put in place to keep that gambling fair and safe for all.</p><p> </p><p>Regardless of the level of stakes, the Gambling Commission requires all operators providing facilities for gambling to adhere to the licence conditions and codes of practice relevant to their activity designed to minimise harm generated by gambling.</p><p> </p><p>Under the 2005 Act fixed odds betting terminals are permitted in casinos and bookmakers. High street betting shops are limited to four machines per premises. The Act also set the current gaming machine entitlements for casinos.</p><p> </p><p>The Government recently introduced new regulations in April which ended unsupervised stakes above £50 on FOBTs in betting shops. We will want to assess the impact of these measures before we consider any further legislative options.</p><p><br>Any discussion about changes to gaming machine entitlements in casinos would need to be accompanied by robust proposals from the industry for managing any additional risk of harm to players that may arise.</p>
