Abstract

A history of gambling in Britain in the decade since the passing of the Gambling Act 2005, comparing the aspirations and expectations of the Gambling Review Board with actual events. The study draws on a wide range of data sources to identify commercial, economic, political, regulatory and social effects and thereby to assess the success of the Act in achieving the aims of those who framed the legislation. The study will be reviewed by the renowned economist Sir Alan Budd, who chaired the Gambling Review Board; and also by Ian Burke, chairman and former CEO of The Rank Group, Britain's largest gambling company.
