The Department of Culture, Media and Sport has conducted a new project to find out how much money is left dormant in casino accounts. The survey was completed in July of last year with results having been sent to the Minister for Tourism and Heritage for further consideration.
Early reports have claimed that the findings showed that millions of pounds had been left in casino accounts and that these funds could be accessed in order to be used for ‘good causes’.
The research may result in the change of casinos and online casinos changing their terms and conditions so that funds left in casino accounts for a certain period of time may be removed. While this will undoubtedly be a controversial move, there may be considerable support for the new terms which would see the money taken go to the DCMS.
