Gambling addiction racket game

Postby Shasida В» 08.05.2019

.

The chancellor is said to be alarmed about losing a lucrative tax stream. Absurdly, FOBTs, which seduce gamblers to play for as long as they can, are treated in legislation as if they were games of skill. But there is no skill whatever involved in playing them; only in programming them to extract the most cash possible from players. It is not just the speed and ease with which money can be lost that makes these machines dangerous.

FOBTs trade on a psychological insight: what keeps customers engaged is less the hope of winning than the pleasure of playing. It is, while it lasts, entirely satisfying. This is a similar mechanism to that which, in popular myth at least, leads teenagers, lost in their video games, to starve to death after playing for days and nights without sleep or food.

The machines can pay out something on nearly half the spins, without ever losing overall. It is not just the addictive personalities who are vulnerable — even though a US study estimated that there are more Americans who are gambling addicts than survivors of breast cancer — it is pre-eminently people who are poor and unemployed.

Betting shops seep along high streets as conventional commerce recedes, but betting shops sell nothing but dreams. The big gambling companies will fight tooth and nail to protect their huge profits. The government should recall a report earlier this year from the cross-party parliamentary group that pointed out that the money siphoned out of poor communities by gambling could be much more usefully taxed if it came from consumer spending, or the income of people in work. The harm done by the addictive nature of these machines of extortion is not in doubt.

There is strong cross-party support to slash the maximum stake from Iain Duncan Smith to Tom Watson, who has offered Labour votes to overcome the resistance of Conservative libertarians. The government has acted before against the indefensible when strengthening regulations on payday loans.

Earlier this year, the government delayed a report on whether to curb FOBTs and limit the spread of gambling ads on television. With the Department of Culture, Media and Sport not due to publish its recommendations until October, Gambling Commission executive director Tim Miller warned that neither the government nor the gambling industry were moving fast enough.
