Gambling – Las Vegas on every phone – shake up in laws
Culture Secretary Lucy Frazer outlines plans in Parliament saying the rise of smartphones means “now there’s a Las Vegas on every phone”.
Ms Frazer said her “balanced” proposal would still let people enjoy a flutter.
However gamblers losing £1,000 a day are to face checks.
Culture Secretary: we’ll force gambling companies to step up. Ms Frazer added – you can’t put a cost on loss of dignity.
The announcement of what the government’s long-awaited white paper actually contains has been delayed at least four times, since the review of gambling laws was first announced by Oliver Dowden, then culture secretary, in 2020.
