Reduce maximum stake Fixed Odds Betting Terminals from £100 to £2 by April 2019

Chancellor Philip Hammond said in Monday's Budget that the in stakes from £100 to £2 would come into force in October 2019 not the agreed April 2019, this is totally unacceptable

The users of these machines are being sacrificed over Gambling Industry Profits.

"From the time of the announcement to reduce stakes and its implementation, over £1.6bn will be lost on these machines”

"In addition, two people will tragically take their lives every day due to gambling-related problems and, for that reason as much as any other, I believe this delay is unjustifiable." - Tracey Couch

Problem gamblers are often troubled, vulnerable and in self-destruct mode. An addict desires to burn quickly - the 'crack-cocaine' FOBT machines facilitate this B2 gaming/roulette can take £100 in seconds.
