Shares in British gambling companies tumbled on Monday after a cross-party group of lawmakers called for a raft of measures to overhaul online casinos and protect vulnerable people. The lawmakers called for limiting maximum stakes in online betting, similar to rules for high-speed slot machines where bets are restricted to 2 pounds, and banning the use of credit cards to gamble online. The recommendations included calling for treatment of gambling addiction to be offered under the state-run National Health Service (NHS).

Major regulatory changes on both sides of the Atlantic for the gambling sector have commanded investor attention in recent months, but Britain's GVC has been able to weather out the storm and reported strong results. The company this week, however, spooked some investors after warning that a cut to the maximum stake on fixed-odds betting terminals (FOBTs) would result in the closure of up to a thousand shops and impact core earnings by about 135 million pounds in 2019. Chief Executive Officer Kenneth Alexander and Chairman Lee Feldman together sold 3 million GVC shares at a discounted price of 666 pence, seen by investors as a lack of confidence in the bookmaker.
The company had cut its profit forecast in November due to tightening regulations at home, particularly on lucrative fixed-odds betting terminals (FOBTs), and warned of more losses in the United States. William Hill said 2018 adjusted operating profit from continuing operations would be 234 million pounds, slightly higher than company-supplied analyst estimates of 232.2 million pounds. Profit was lower in its retail business due to tough high-street conditions and the offering would be remodelled in 2019 as Chief Executive Officer Philip Bowcock looks to make the firm a "digitally-led international business", the company said.
