star this property answer text <p>Protecting vulnerable people from gambling-related harm is a priority for the Government and where there is evidence that a particular product or environment is causing harm, we will take action. The government Review of Gaming Machines and Social Responsibility in May sought to ensure the right balance between socially responsible growth of industry, and the protection of the most vulnerable, including children, from gambling-related harm. We have committed to reduce the maximum stake on B2 machines from £100 to £2 and the Gambling Commission will work with industry to improve player control measures on these and other category B gaming machines.</p><p> </p><p>The Gambling Commission regularly reviews its regulatory requirements to take account of developments in technology and in the market and in response to emerging risks and issues. It recently concluded a review of the online gambling sector, which identified a number of key areas where it plans to consult on enhancing protections. It also identified areas for further work, including reviewing game and product characteristics to identify whether particular features pose greater risk of harm than others. It intends to conduct further research into the relationship between in-game features and the potential to incentivise negative gambling behaviour.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The most recent large-scale report was published by the Gambling Commission in 2017, using data from Health Survey for England and Scotland 2015 and Problem Gambling Survey Wales 2015. This estimated the number of adult problem gamblers in Great Britain as approximately 430,000, 0.8% of the population.</p><p> </p><p>The number of gambling adverts on TV rose from 2007, and new types of advertising emerged such as online and on social media. There have been three other published large-scale assessments of rates of problem gambling since then: the British Gambling Prevalence Survey (BGPS) 2007, BGPS 2010 and the Health Survey for England and Scotland 2012. Over the course of these surveys there have been slight adjustments to the approach, questions and methodology, and across this period, observed rates of problem gambling have fluctuated slightly but have remained below 1%. Any observed changes are not statistically significant. The response to the Review of Gaming Machines and Social Responsibility set out a package of initiatives to strengthen protections around gambling advertising. It also recognised that there were gaps in the evidence available, and proposed measures to fill these, including significant research commissioned by GambleAware into the impact of gambling advertising on children, young people and those vulnerable to harm. This is due to be completed next year.</p>
