Flutter releases a statement on UK White Paper

27 April 2023
(PRESS RELEASE) -- Following the publication of the Gambling Act Review White Paper, Peter Jackson, CEO of Flutter Entertainment plc, commented:
“We welcome the publication of the White Paper, which marks a significant moment for the U.K. gambling sector. Whilst we will need to review the detail of the proposals, we believe proactive change will lead to a better future for our industry. As such we have introduced industry-leading safer gambling controls via our ‘Play Well’ strategy over the last few years, including setting mandatory deposit limits for customers under age 25, reducing online slots staking limits to £10 per spin and making material investments in our safer gambling operational capabilities. We will continue to constructively engage with the Government and Gambling Commission as part of any subsequent industry consultation processes, with a focus on providing support to the minority at risk of gambling harm without interfering disproportionately with the enjoyment of the vast majority.”
