'Super casino' plans scaled down

Critics fear a rise in the number of problem gamblers
Plans for up to 40 Las Vegas-style "super casinos" across the UK have been scaled down by the government.
Its Gambling Bill has faced opposition from MPs, including Labour members, who fear an increase in gambling addicts.

Culture Secretary Tessa Jowell told Labour MPs that only eight such casinos will now be allowed to open initially.

Whether they lead to an increase in problem gambling and help regenerate their local area will be assessed before any more can be approved.
