    Max stake on gambling machines cut to £2

    The government is to clamp down on the "social blight" of fixed-odds betting terminals by cutting the maximum stake to £2. Culture Secretary Matt Hancock said ministers had decided to "take a stand" despite dire warnings from the betting industry - which reacted to the announcement by saying 21,000 people were expected to lose their jobs as a result. A review by the Gambling Commission in March had recommended a maximum stake of £30 or less for so-called non-slot machines such as roulette - by far the most popular FOBT game - but the government decided to go further.

    GVC says done with UK deals after Ladbrokes acquisition

    Online gambling firm GVC Holdings (Frankfurt: 6GI.F - news) , which has expanded rapidly through a series of deals, will sit out any further consolidation in the British industry, its head told Reuters. GVC, which has agreed to take over leading British bookmaker Ladbrokes Coral (LSE: LAD.L - news) for up to 4 billion pounds ($5.5 billion), said net gaming revenue rose 17 percent in 2017, helped by gains from the bwin.party businesses it bought three years ago. Merger activity in the British gambling market has gained pace as companies bulk up in response to higher tax bills and tighter regulations and GVC has been at the forefront.

    GVC gives away Turkish business to help smooth Ladbrokes takeover

    Online gambling company GVC (GVC.L) has given away its Turkey business, hoping the move will help smooth its takeover of Ladbrokes (LCL.L) after GVC's lenders baulked at its exposure to a country where internet betting is illegal. GVC had agreed on Nov. 2 to sell its business in Turkey for as much as 150 million euros ($186 million), before it struck the much bigger Ladbrokes deal worth at least 3.1 billion pounds ($4.3 billion). Ropso is backed by individuals that GVC said had provided IT services for its Turkish business.

    British gambling firm GVC seals Ladbrokes takeover

    GVC, the owner of the Sportingbet, Bwin and Foxy Bingo brands said it would pay 32.7 pence in cash and 0.141 new GVC shares for each Ladbrokes share. The precise final price depends on the outcome of a review into fixed-odds betting terminals (FOBTs), which are moneyspinners for companies such as Ladbrokes but have come under fire for leaving gamblers with heavy losses. Ladbrokes Coral -- which de-throned William Hill (WMH.L) as the country's largest bookmaker after merging with Coral last year -- made about 800 million pounds of revenue from gaming machines in 2016.
