Betting shops are a familiar, if not universally loved, feature in town and cities throughout the UK. However, in recent years increasing concerns have been expressed about the presence of betting shops in high streets and about the role of betting shops in encouraging gambling. At the same time, the widespread adoption of personal mobile communication technologies and new government regulations on gambling within betting shops are creating a new business environment for betting shop companies. This case study examines the range of changes and pressures the betting shop companies are facing and explores some of the impacts of these changes and pressures.
