Adrian Parkinson continues his crusade against FOBTs in Guardian op-ed piece

Adrian Parkinson, who describes himself as the industry executive who turned whistle-blower on Fixed Odds Betting Terminals in the bookmaking industry in 2012, has continued his crusade against the betting machines in an op-ed article in The Guardian newspaper this week.
In the article, Parkinson explains why current measures to curb addictive fixed-odds betting terminals don't go far enough, and suggests tighter restrictions.

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
