Fixed-odds betting machines
Consumer affairs programme. Fixed-odds betting machines; copycat websites; renting to under-35s.
The Government is expected to announce a review of fixed-odds betting terminals (FOBTs) in the autumn. The Bishop of St Albans and writer Jimmy McGovern join the programme to discuss concerns that the machines may harm vulnerable people.
Scams are costing UK citizens almost £10 billion a year, with at least two being reported to some councils every day. Trading Standards tell You & Yours how they are trying to protect victims of copycat government websites.
And the landlords who don't want to rent to the under 35s and why?
