UK trade association Bacta is preparing to bare its teeth at what is shaping up to be a tense meeting with officials from HM Treasury on Wednesday next week.
UK amusement and gaming trade association Bacta will use this year’s political party conference season as an opportunity to drive home its arguments on behalf of the industry.
Bacta CEO John White stressed the need for infrastructural investment in coastal areas by highlighting that UK seaside resorts are often sustained by the income brought in by arcades.
Bacta has strengthened its field based compliance team with the appointment of former police officer David Miller to the post of Regional Compliance Officer with responsibility for London and the Home Counties as well as Eastern and Southern regions.
Bacta and CORCA have agreed an informal programme of co-operation on matters of mutual interest.
UK amusement and gaming trade body bacta has met with former Conservative Party leader Iain Duncan Smith to present a new report that tackles the economic impact on bookmakers from a proposed reduction in FOBT maximum stake to £2.
A report commissioned by Bacta has claimed that the economic impact on bookmakers from lowering FOBT stakes has been "wildly overestimated"...
The UK Government has announced that it intends to reduce the maximum stakes on B2 gaming machines, better known as FOBTs, but has launched a 12-week consultation to determine the new lower level.
The Industry Group for Responsible Gambling (IGRG) have announced a raft of enhancements to the ‘Gambling Industry Code for Socially Responsible Advertising.’
Contrary to recent speculation, the review of Fixed-Odds Betting Terminals (FOBT) stakes has not been shelved, Bacta chief executive John White has reassured members.
