star this property answer text The government published the Review of Gaming Machines and Social Responsibility Measures in May. This set out measures to strengthen protections around gaming machines, including cutting the maximum stake on B2 machines from £100 to £2, and on online gambling and gambling advertising. It also set out action on treatment and support for those who experience harm, including initiatives to improve the evidence on treatment needs and effectiveness, expand access to existing services and strengthen the voluntary system for funding support. We take gambling-related harm very seriously and will work closely across Government and with the Gambling Commission to build on the actions outlined in the Review. more like this

star this property answer text <p>Millions of people enjoy gambling responsibly, but this must be balanced against the need to protect vulnerable people from gambling-related harm. We recognise there are risks associated with gambling, which is why there is a strong regulatory framework designed to prevent harm, as well as provisions to support those who do experience harm.</p><p> </p><p>Regulation of gambling in Great Britain is governed by the licensing objectives in the Gambling Act 2005, which include keeping gambling fair and open and protecting children and vulnerable people. All gambling companies providing facilities to customers in Great Britain must be licensed by the Gambling Commission and comply with its licence conditions and codes of practice. The Gambling Commission monitors operators to ensure that they comply with their licence conditions and can take regulatory action where there is evidence of a breach.</p><p> </p><p>The government's Review of Gaming Machines and Social Responsibility Measures looked at protections on gaming machines, online gambling and gambling advertising and set out a comprehensive package of measures to further strengthen these.</p>

The Gambling Commission has broad and flexible powers to set licence conditions and take action where there is evidence of harm.</p><p> </p><p>In May 2018 the government published the response to the consultation on Proposals for Changes to Gaming Machines and Social Responsibility Measures and as a result the maximum stake on B2 machines was cut from £100 to £2 in April this year. In addition, the Gambling Commission has tightened identity and age verification controls online and introduced tougher sanctions for breaches of advertising codes, and is currently consulting on whether gambling with credit cards online should be restricted or banned. A multi-million pound safer gambling advertising campaign, Bet Regret, was launched in February this year, aimed at reducing risky and impulsive gambling.</p> more like this
