Bally’s has said that it welcomes the UK government’s publication of The Gambling Act white paper.
The white paper proposes to limit online slot stakes, introduce a statutory levy and run checks on players whose losses exceed a certain threshold.
Bally’s praised the Government for making “great strides in developing social responsibility measures” to safeguard those who enjoy gambling as part of their leisure activities.
It added that it intends to be “actively involved” in upcoming consultations to support the Betting and Gaming Council.
“After four years of ongoing consultation, we are pleased that the UK government has released its white paper review of the 2005 Gambling Act, which we hope will now bring clarity for UK gambling operators,” said Robeson Reeves, CEO of Bally’s. “Bally’s has voluntarily implemented a significant number of the improvements identified in the white paper.
“We will continue to work constructively with both the government and Gambling Commission to find an effective solution that ensures the reforms are appropriate and guarantee a safe and sustainable future for the industry.”
