...when in 10 minutes on here or any other site you could be destroyed by the corruption of the games, slots and casino. Also you can lose far more than you could ever lose on a FOBT.

Totally agree. I noticed on some of the casino slots you can go up to £500 a spin. That's meant to promote responsible gambling is it.

Well clearly it making a difference as Billys just announced closing 700 shops and Ladcrokes/Coral anticipating 900 will close:

https://www.racingpost.com/news/ladbrokes-coral-owner-reduces-number-of-betting-shops-at-risk-of-closure-to-900/388783

My my rough estimate 1600 shops being forced to close might equate to £30,000,000 per annum no longer being lost by punters in the high street. Of course they might just have migrated online which would be tragic.

Whilst I have sympathy with anybody losing their job; I have no sympathy for these businesses taking the easy option and expanding out of control without caring a jot about the trail of carnage they create. They have lost most other forms of gamblers due to laziness.

My own view is nobody who plays FOBT's is in a good place; a trained monkey could press buttons and lose money just as wastefully.
