For the purposes of this report, Mintel defines a betting shop as a licensed premises located in a public place to which adults (over18s) can go to place a bet (over the counter or via a self-service terminal) or to play gaming machines.
Gaming machines in shops generally refer to B2 category machines, also known as fixed odds betting terminals (FOBTs). These machines feature traditional casino games such as roulette and blackjack, and offer a maximum payout of £500 per spin (from a maximum £2 stake). The stake limit was reduced from £100 to £2 in April 2019. B3 category machines, which tend to feature slot-based games, can also be found in some betting shops and have the same maximum stake/payout.
The term “gross gambling yield” (GGY) refers to total stakes or any amount (exclusive of taxes) that will otherwise accrue to the licensee, minus consumers’ winnings. This is also referred to as “consumer expenditure” within the report.
"With the new stake limit coming into play, the future looks bleak for the betting shops market. If operators can move away from their heavy reliance on gaming machines and towards improving customer experience and promoting a community spirit, they’re more likely to weather the storm".
