Slot Hall Gambling Limits Keep Rising In The UK
In 2009, the UK will be once again leading the way into the future of gambling. For the second time in two years, gambling limits are going up in slot parlors and clubs.
The gambling industry has been lobbying the government to raise the limits allowed on slot machines. The plan has received heavy opposition, some of that opposition even coming from Prime Minister Gordon Brown.
Brown, however, although opposed to expanded gambling, understands the need for revenue in the gambling industry to continue growing. Therefore he has supported the raised limits despite being ridiculed for his decision.
He claims that, "if an economy is not moving", then there is a need for something to be done. That something at this point in time was to raise the limits in places where slots are offered.
The opposition comes from the usual suspects. Church groups are concerned about the increased limits leading to an increase in problem gambling. There has been no evidence that will be the case.
Brown has already shot down a plan for a super casino in Manchester, so he has publicly shown that he does not care for expanded gambling. The revenue increase is estimated at millions of dollars a year, something that Brown could not ignore.
