Our CEO, Paul Buck, has just been on National Radio commenting on the announced £2 stake cut on FOBTs.
EPIC are in favour of the stake reduction which was needed to protect vulnerable customers. We also welcome the wider measures that Tracey Crouch has announced to help make gambling fairer and safer. EPIC continue to work directly and practically with the highest risk sectors and we are delighted that gambling operations are now actively engaged in making their businesses more responsible and ultimately more sustainable. Education, prevention and practical harm minimisation programmes are essential with a fit for purpose treatment pathway for those who still fall off the cliff”
