Proposals announced by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport include limits on online slots and a statutory levy on operators to support gambling addiction treatment. A series of land-based proposals are also set to be implemented.
Rank Group, which operates Grosvenor Casino properties and Mecca Bingo halls in the UK, has welcomed the white paper's proposals for the land-based sector.
"The government's commitment to a sliding scale for gaming machine numbers, based on size of venue, ought to ensure that the vast majority of our 50 casinos will benefit from a greater variety of gaming machines which will better meet the needs of our customers," a statement read.
We are always interested to hear the opinions of industry experts across the pay-to-play, land-based gaming, sports betting and iGaming sectors.
