New IEA report on gambling - A Safer Bet

In December, the government launched a consultation on how to make gambling regulation 'fir for the digital age'. It runs until the end of the month. No doubt every anti-gambling group will be responding to it demanding more bans and restrictions. 

There has been no shortage of fresh regulation in recent years, but the kind of policies being demanded by anti-gambling groups would take things to a new level and could be very damaging to players, to the industry and to the Treasury. I've written about this in a new report for the IEA - A Safer Bet. Have a read of it and see what you think. 

I've also written about this for the Telegraph and ConHome.
