British Players Under 25 Will Have a £2 Bet Limit Per Spin, According to the Leaked Documents

The gambling industry has long been waiting for the publication of the White Paper that should reveal some new rules. Many expect some bad news, and the documents leaked to The Sun confirm there are plenty of them. The changes are aimed at minimizing gambling harm, and operators are sure to dislike them.

  • Online players under 25 won’t be able to bet £2 per spin, and for older gamblers the limit is set at £15.
  • If players are flagged as “high risk”, their data is shared across all operators, which should stop them from losing too much.
  • Operators will have to watch closely for signs of unaffordable losses and do credit checks if customers are at risk of racking up debt.
  • Operators will pay a share of their profit (supposedly 1%) to help prevent gambling related harm.
  • Game features deemed “too risky” will be limited.
  • The Gambling Commission will get more power to fight illegal gambling.
  • A new organization will be created to mediate player complaints.
