DOMINIC LAWSON: The cost-of-living crisis is driving gambling addicts to risk even more

The cost of living is driving people into debt. More than two million Britons used emergency food banks in the past year. The House of Lords report found that a third of a million people are 'disordered' gamblers. The Blair/Brown administration liberalised the gambling industry in 2005. It has been a social disaster for the poorest families. David Lawson met a group of young men whose gambling addiction had devastated their lives. He believes the rise of foodbanks is linked to the issue of 'problem gambling' as well as poverty. They are a Labour party constituency. For more information, visit David's website.

Britain is taking too long to crack down on gambling

The UK government launched a review of gambling laws in 2020. The call for evidence concluded over a year ago. There are at least a third of a million problem gamblers in the UK, of which more than 50,000 are children. NHS announced it would set up 15 gambling treatment clinics across England and Wales.

The 'dodgy dossier' of evidence that could mislead government in gambling review

Dan Waugh is a strategic advisor at Regulus Partners. He questions the quality of the evidence on which the government will base its gambling review white paper. The government is close to publishing its whitepaper on the reform of Britain's gambling laws. The report from Public Health England, which claimed that betting and gaming cost the state £1.27 billion a year, is almost entirely made up. It is this attitude that is at the heart of policy-makers' problems. They need a robust fact-checking system to interrogate and weigh testimony. Without it, the parliament is unable to apply proper legislative scrutiny.

Online Bingo UK report reveals the arcade gambling habits of Britain’s children & calls for tighter regulation

75% of UK parents take their children to amusement arcades. Most of the popular and iconic arcade machines are category D gambling machines. Online Bingo UK found that exposure to Category D machines could be the cause of problems with gambling later in life. The average annual arcade spend is £25 per family. The UK Gambling Commission, British Amusement Catering Trade Association and House of Lords must work harder to protect children. They must also stop using gambling advertising in arcade spaces meant for children and families. There are studies that show that regular arcade use as a child could lead to gambling problems as an adult.

The dark side of gaming

Loot boxes are a feature embedded within video games where players can buy a sealed mystery ‘box’ for real money. Marc Skinner, educational youth lead at Addiction Recovery Agency (Ara), works to tackle the links between gaming and gambling. He believes that the mechanics of loot boxes “closely replicate gambling” and ”players can become addicted to opening them“. In extreme cases, young people rack up outgoings of thousands through their gameplay.
