New gambling machines are no more addictive than traditional forms

Christopher Snowdon appears on BBC Radio Manchester

Christopher Snowdon appeared on BBC Radio Manchester to discuss fixed odds betting machines.

Mr Snowdon disagreed with a campaign trying to stop a new fixed odds betting shop opening in Manchester.

"The new form of gambling is no more addictive or seductive than traditional forms," Mr Snowdon stated.

This is more of a panic along the lines of what occured related to scratch cards, internet gambling, and the lottery.
