This book is about the public regulation of commercial gambling in Great Britain. It examines recent changes and proposals for change to three primary forms - betting, gaming, and lotteries - against an account of their social and legal history. The author then moves forward to analyse the current regime and evaluate the impact of the Gambling Bill (introduced in 2003) upon it.
