LGA: Fixed Odds Betting Terminals: this briefing, prepared in connection with a Westminster debate, calls for a government review into gaming machine stakes to be launched immediately. It highlights concerns about the anomaly of the significantly higher stakes permitted on Fixed Odds Betting Terminals compared to other high street machines, and the evidence of harm and anti-social behaviour linked to them. It also argues for stronger powers for local authorities to prevent the opening of additional betting shops in areas that are already saturated with them. (22 April 2016)
