“ The Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport has today announced that the widely anticipated stake cut for Fixed Odds Betting Terminals (FOBTs) is to be brought forward from October to April next year.

The Government’s planned increase to Remote Gaming Duty, which is paid by online gambling operators, will also be brought forward to April to cover any negative financial impact on public finances.
