The Guardian will be lapping it up
So much so, that they employed two journalists for their piece published earlier this morning! :cool:

No point at all in stake limits if you have to prove affordability on anything over £23 a week.
If you can only deposit £23 a week you aren't going to be staking over £5 a spin, so why put the limit in place.
If you can prove affordability, and get a limit of say £1000 a month, then wheres the point in limiting stakes, if you can afford £1000 a month and spend it using £2 spins or £20 spins, then what difference would it make?

If these measures are brought in, I can see a lot of casinos either pulling out the UK market, or closing down.

I'm just thankful I have these people to protect me! And all without me ever buying a copy of The Guardian. So kind!

I look forward to having to supply a liver function test next time I try to buy my third pint

Is the £100 limit per casino?
If so, that’s not so unreasonable is it?
Playing at my L&L Casinos alone... I could Technically lose £600 a month still (which is more than I have spare to play with) so is it such a shocking limit?

What happens if you have more disposable income one month? Hit a win like I did last night? You could see your disposable income shoot up 10 fold.

Either way, it's your money and you earned it. Why should ANYONE be judge, jury and executioner over what you can spend your money on??

There wont be any pleasure left with online gaming, thought it was bad enough now but if they go through
with the recommendations on this report it will be a total waste of time, on a £100 limit we wont even be
able to manage 10p spins for any length of time.Why the fuck cant they just leave things alone instead
of meddling in a business they know nothing about.
Better make the most of what time we have left online or go searching in uncharted waters.

Just heard on LBC, that there's going to be some announcements today regarding gambling in the UK.

Heard that a £100 loss limit a month is going to be Imposed, until you can prove you can afford more.

Sounds like stake limits are going to be imposed as well.

Also offering incentives for offshore companies to move back to the UK.
Sounds like deliberately kicking your team mate in the balls while playing football then fully expecting the guy to be best buddies after

Also, a £100 loss limit - well, some casinos accept £5.00 deposits. I could easily win 21x that amount from that deposit and then find I couldn't play anymore if I used up all my winnings.

Muddled thinking from people who don't actually play.

So what's stopping people losing £100 per casino? Will they have a Gamstop-esque barrier to prevent players hopping to different casinos and losing £1500 in an afternoon? Or is it just sensationalist RG bluster to appear to be 'doing something positive'?

My guess is that they will compel all banks and banking systems to limit the amount that they are able to transfer out to and the likes of Nutella will be linked to banks in order for them to share such data

Who is going to be this ombudsman who checks and will that be a blanket check for all casinos or will each casino have its own? I really don't fancy having to explain every single penny I have 15 times

These different reports published within last year or something are not giving any great solutions and options to solve any gambling related problems, was it problem gambling, using illegal funds or whatever.

This is already almost a thing at some casinos
Namely Trada /aspire group force this on people to about the tune of 500 per month unless they can prove otherwise. Which although a far cry from a measly 100, is not far off
