LONDON, December 18, 2020 – Last week the Government launched a major and wide-ranging review of gambling laws to ensure they are fit for the digital age. Welcoming the call for evidence, Flutter Entertainment Chief Executive, Peter Jackson, said:
“The launch of the Gambling Act Review has the potential to be a transformational moment for our industry in the UK. Everything should be on the table, evaluated on the basis of substantive evidence. We must seize this opportunity in the interests of those who want to see a safer, better future for everyone connected to gambling.
“While there is still more to do, over the past few years we as an operator, and the industry as a whole, have done much to make gambling safer. We look forward to sharing our evidence-based findings with the Government in due course, so that we can continue to improve the landscape and achieve meaningful change that genuinely helps those who need it.”
