Here are the main points of the most sweeping gambling reform in 18 years:

๐Ÿ“Œ Betting limits of $2.5 to $18.6 per spin, for vulnerable groups (18-24) limits can be cut in half. Limits also apply to all new accounts.

๐Ÿ“Œ Mandatory 1% tax on operators' income to fund the fight against cheating.

๐Ÿ“Œ Limiting advertising, with messages of harm to gambling becoming "stronger and more effective."

๐Ÿ“Œ The UK Gambling Commission will be able to block illegal operators directly through a request to an internet service provider.

๐Ÿ“Œ Protection for players "at risk" and accessibility checks: players must get on the regulator's books, provide proof of criminal record and income when spending ยฃ1000 in 24 hours or ยฃ2000 in 90 days.

๐Ÿ“Œ Restrictions on bonuses, prizes, temporary promotions and other marketing mailings.
