With the weight of a number of top sports organisations, such as the Premier League, likely to be opposed to numerous recommendations made by the House of Lords committee, it could well be a delicate balancing act between the recommendations of the committee, and what can be reasonably expected of sports betting companies and the teams and events they sponsor, that the government has to find.
However, Grade said that the Act is actually "way behind what was actually happening in the market" at the moment, but that the "overwhelming majority" of the report's recommendations "could be enacted today". "The more harmful a gambling product is, the higher the levy the operator should pay". There is much in it that we support and whilst we don't agree with every recommendation, we feel this is an important contribution to the debate and the approach the Lords took was constructive.

The liberalisation of gambling heralded in by the Gambling Act 2005, the universal adoption of smart phones, and the ingenious and often unscrupulous exploitation of soft-touch regulation by gambling operators has created a flawless storm of addictive 24/7 gambling.
"We would now urge the Government to bring forward their planned Review of the Gambling Act without delay and to work with the industry on an evidence-led approach to future regulation".
The report said that oversight of the gambling sector needs to be strengthened.
However, the report highlighted that this wasn't entirely the regulator's fault and flagged examples of DCMS ministers failing to act on advice from the Commission.
Neil McArthur, Chief Executive of the Gambling Commission, which would be responsible for implementing any regulation changes, said he would rather stay away from regulating the gaming industry but would do so if the decision was made.
The UKGC should also demonstrate greater willingness to revoke the licenses of repeat offenders. There should also be no gambling advertising in or near any sports grounds or sports venues. Non-Premier League football would have an exemption until 2023, as would horse racing and other sports.
