Would like to think it's the bottom as it is at its lowest for over five years, as for the FOBT review, one has to think there is no smoke without fire to the shelving of the review, the opposition to the FOBTs are certainly loud and appear quite desperate in their efforts to make the government ban the machines. Personally I think there will be some sort of arbitration to make both sides happy and WH will climb back above £3 in October if not before if a deal with the Stars Group emerges.

Bonnier - on what grounds are you suggesting this? Wishful thinking as an anti-FOBT poster or better information than this?

What is the difference between "£100 every 20 seconds"And spending £45 on a bottle of Glenfiddich in Tesco?Is the often repeated statement "£100 every 20 seconds" a theoretical maximum or the average spend?Theoretically, someone could spend £100 within a few minutes at Tesco. I used to be addicted to Tesco.Shouldn't the government intervene to ensure there are always long queues at the Tesco checkouts so that poor people cannot spend their cash too quickly?Perhaps segregate with fast checkouts for middle class and slow checkouts for the poor.

There was a good section on LBC radio earlier on , saying a report just out shows how beneficial people who drink,smoke and gamble contribute more to the economy of this country than the Liberal left wing do-Gooders do. Went on to say if we all decided to stop these vices the treasury would have a shortfall of over £25 billion !!!

"Most of them are located in poorer parts of the country, according to campaigners."Is this true?I would have thought they were distributed according to the location of the betting shops. If the statement refers to the placement of betting shops, then surely the issue is about poor people gambling - full stop. Should the campaigners philosophy not also apply to poor people gambling on the national lottery?The payout per machine is fixed at around 97%. Hence the name FOBT.What is the payout per national lottery ticket?

I remember the Evening standard did something similar a while back, reported a rumour of a takeover regarding BP, about half an hour before closing on a Friday, nothing came of it, as if things aren't tough enough trying to pick winners we've got fake news to deal with too. I'm still holding here, worst case I reckon is they drop the fobts down to £50 limit, too much revenue at stake & jobs, increase in the divi & a director buying 92,000 shares recently bodes well, all my own opinion of course, GLA

Not much action today. Clearly nobody believes the dailymail article. This smells of a placed story to trigger a backlash.Anti Hammond move

All to play for by the looks of it. Hammond for PM. A shame the NI MPs are pushing for stricter regs based no doubt on the religious anti-gambling stance more generally.

Theresa May urged to curb betting machinesFrancis Elliott, Political EditorAugust 7 2017, 12:01am, The TimesFixed odds betting terminals allow gamblers to wager £100 every 20 secondsFixed odds betting terminals allow gamblers to wager £100 every 20 secondsDANIEL HAMBURY/PAShareSaveTheresa May is being urged to press ahead with a crackdown on addictive gambling machines despite Treasury warnings that it will cost £400 million in lost duty.The rise of fixed odd betting terminals, which allow gamblers to wager £100 every 20 seconds, has been blamed for fuelling addiction, debt and crime.Ministers hinted at action to limit stakes to £2 before the election but a review of the law on betting terminals has been delayed until October amid reports of a row with the Treasury.Philip Hammond, the chancellor, has not ordered the restrictions to be shelved but is expected to insist that the Department for Culture, Media and Sport help to plug any lost revenues if it goes ahead, according to Whitehall insiders.Formal proposals to be circulated among senior ministers are likely to include measures to increase taxes on casinos, sources say. The growth in revenues from online gambling may also attract additional duties to help to offset the loss in taxes from the terminals.It is estimated that about £1.8 billion a year is gambled on the machines. Most of them are located in poorer parts of the country, according to campaigners.Mr Hammond is being urged to take into account the costs of gambling addiction, debt, family breakdown and money laundering, all of which have been linked to the terminals, in assessing the merits of restricting their use.Mrs May will make the final decision. One person involved in the negotiations asked: "Is she true to the spirit of what she said about tackling the burning injustices of society on the steps of Downing Street last year or not?"A failure to act would be highly controversial. Tom Watson, Labour's deputy leader, called on Karen Bradley, the culture secretary, to deny publicly that the review had been called off."If the Treasury has insisted the review is shelved then the chancellor has ridden roughshod over his cabinet colleagues and overwhelming public evidence about the danger these highly addictive machines pose," he said.Mrs May's formal ally, the Democratic Unionist Party, supports moves to curb the machines. One of its MPs, Jim Shannon, said: "We will continue to ask for restrictions on the stakes for these machines. It should be £2."

Story being denied by sports minister Tracey Crouch. See Racing Post. Looks like usual government cohesion.
