1 pointShares in gambling companies hit following fears online stakes may be reduced reduced The Gambling Commission will decide in the next sixth months whether stakes for online gambling should be reduced Racing Post 1 of 1 By Bill Barber5:06PM, FEB 13 2020 Bookmaker shares fell sharply on Thursday after it emerged the Gambling Commission had committed to decide in the next six months on whether stakes for online gaming should be reduced. The regulator's chief executive Neil McArthur made the pledge when appearing before the influential Gambling Related Harm All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Wednesday. Last November more than a billion pounds was wiped from gambling stocks after the APPG produced a report calling for the stakes for online casino games to be brought in line with those on FOBTs in betting shops, which were reduced to £2 in April. After the latest news, William Hill shares were down more than seven per cent at 181.95p on Thursday afternoon, shares in Ladbrokes Coral's parent company GVC Holdings fell nearly six per cent at 876.6p, and Paddy Power Betfair's parent company Flutter Entertainment's share price was down around two per cent at 8,602p. A spokesperson for the Gambling Commission said: "We said last October that we would be looking at online stake limits as part of our work to reduce the risks of gambling-related harm. "This work is in addition to us focusing on VIP practices, advertising technology and game design. We will publish our assessment and next steps for online stakes and further protections later this year." The government has said it will review the 2005 Gambling Act, "to make sure it is fit for the modern age". Trade body the Betting and Gaming Council said in a statement: "We want to have a betting and gaming industry in this country which is not just the best in class, but which also ensures we don’t drive people towards betting on harmful unregulated black markets. "We're working hard with the Gambling Commission and with the government on their review to ensure effective regulation." Analysts at Goodbody said that since the APPG published its report "this issue has seen increased interest from investors". Goodbody questioned whether a limit would be introduced and also whether it would be as low as £2. However, they added: "Certain politicians may not rest until a significant stake reduction is introduced." from the racing post 5 mins ago
1 pointDoesn’t effect me playing on 10p stakes personally you can still win big amounts off £2
1 pointI hope so... up to £2 a spin is more than enough for the vast majority of players

1 pointNah, my home town of Southend’s the place to be, and here’s the proof.... 😉 Not sure that Billy Joel gave the ok for this song nor that he’d approve of the bizarre accent it’s sung in...
