|Deregulation is the word. If there is legislative reform in the gambling laws then gambling in the UK could change by as soon as the turn of the next parliamentary year.|
The most important changes would see to it that gambling becomes easier and more accessible. The proposed changes would permit casinos to advertise and therefore draw in potential new business.
New law would also see the end of the 24-hour rule. At present a new member must join a casino 24 hours before he is even allowed to play. Improved slot machines of higher quality would also be introduced, as would sports betting and bingo.
The presence of high paying slot machines would very much change the public’s ideas of what casinos in the UK are like. 2002 saw certain reforms that should only improve the casino experience in the UK. Consumption of alcohol was allowed on the gaming floors and live entertainment was also permitted for the first time.
In 2003, gamblers are hoping that there will be even more changes. With MGM Mirage making a possible move into the UK gambling market, it might be that the face of British Casinos could be in for a drastic change.
