The regulator will require slots to set limits on slot speeds, and a ban will be implemented to celebrate losses as wins. An example of this would be betting £1 and getting a return of 61p. The regulator said that the rules will apply to both land slots and online slots, and is aimed at letting players have more control over betting.
Operators will also have to display a player's losses or wins on the game during their session, as well as time played. Reverse withdrawals will also be banned permanently for online gaming.
Commenting on the changes UK Minister for Sports, Tourism and Heritage Nigel Huddleston said, "Today's steps will help curb the intensity of online gambling, introducing greater protections that will reduce the risk of gambling related harm."
"I welcome the Gambling Commission's tough measures as we continue our comprehensive review of gambling laws to make sure they're fit for the digital age."
These rule changes will be mandatory by October 31st, 2021.
