Commentators have written retail’s obituary on numerous occasions, but it remains a key part of the gambling ecosystem in Europe. It still faces multiple challenges, though. In Germany, the location of shops is being restricted by zoning laws. In Britain, it has faced a double hit from the FOBT stake cut and a trio of Covid-19 lockdowns. In Spain, new restrictions are being promised to limit the sector. And then there’s the ongoing migration of players online. However, a significant number of people remain optimistic about the channel’s future.
