Losses on FOBTs since 24 October 2016
Stop the losses. Reduce the stake on FOBTs to £2 now.
*Calculated using Gambling Commission figures April 2014 to March 2017
** This estimate is based on losses over a 24 hour period. On average bookmakers are open for 12 hours a day (except for Sundays when they are open for on average 7 hours), on this basis, during shop opening hours, losses would be higher at around £115.14 every second, £6,908.4 every minute and £414,504 an hour.
