I ran a bookies for 12 years – they deserve no sympathy for these store closures | Owen Rees 8 Jul 9:32am I ran a bookies for 12 years – they deserve no sympathy for these store closures | Owen Rees
Reforms to fixed-odds betting machines were always going to hit this profit-driven industry, although closures will send more gamblers onlineSince the introduction of fixed-odds betting terminals (FOBTs) in 2001, UK bookmakers have contributed towards increasing social degradation in our communities.

But there is something sinister about FOBTs, in that they have increased access to quick winnings or losses on the high street, creating an environment more like a miniature casino. More training time was given to the launch of a new FOBT product than to social responsibility awareness
