Is this something the UKGC are looking to implement or just a recommendation from this silly group ? I haven’t time to read the whole report.

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
They're going to need more than 500 with those RTPs :thumbsup:

I haven’t read the article (so correct me if there is a proposal) but if I understand what’s being said, then you can only deposit £100 per month, full stop. Presumably that’s it, as if it were per Casino then it’s pointless implementing it to begin with.

But you are still free to walk into a betting shop and stick £1,000 a day in a FOBT (which have a shocking rtp) or when they reopen, walk into a land based Casino and play £5,000 a spin on the roulette.:rolleyes:

It’s either a proposal that could win “the most ridiculous idea since time began award” or (and I hate to give them credit or ideas) a very smart way of ensuring the government benefit as people would possibly return to betting shops and land based Casinos from which the government surely demand a larger wedge. (Just a thought, could be wrong on that one).

Notice there was nothing about "max bet buttons" that sit next to the spin button (Disgusting scam behaviour), or about these mega annoying pop up messages that seem to pop up every few minutes, and always right when you are enjoying a nice win or feature.

Yeah, why DO they always pop up during a feature??

In fairness in all my online play I’ve only ever twice used this by accident.
one casino gave me back my balance (l and l or lv bet, can’t remember)

and one utter disgrace of a brand didn’t even after contacting the rep (genesis brand)

so it’s not a big issue and I could list loads more issues they need to address before moving the max bet button.
