As of today, people who want to engage in Fixed Odds Betting Terminal wagering in the United Kingdom will be required to select time and spending limits. Those that will continue to play despite of the set limit will be forced by staff to take a break once they have reached the limit of 30 minutes of play and have lost GBP 250. The FOBT restrictions are part of the government action on controversial machines that have been drawing huge attention in recent months. By 30 January 2015 operators will fully implement the restrictions and will put notices about responsible gambling on their windows. It is believed that with these restrictions 75% of the players will stop playing when they reach their set limit.
