    UK business backs May's Brexit deal but plans for the worst

    LONDON/PARIS (Reuters) - UK business lined up to help Prime Minister Theresa May sell her draft Brexit agreement but continued to plan for Britain to crash out of the European Union without a deal as May fought for her political survival on Friday. "This agreement is only a draft," Rolls Royce Chief Executive Warren East told BBC radio. Europe's largest aerospace group, Airbus (AIR.PA), is working on the assumption of a no-deal Brexit, according to a staff memo seen by Reuters.

    All bets are off: UK bookmaker suspends wagers on timing of PM May's exit

    British bookmaker William Hill Plc suspended betting on the year that Prime Minister Theresa May will leave office, it said on Friday, amid speculation that she will face a confidence vote as she defended her draft Brexit deal. "After the press conference on Thursday night, we thought Theresa had probably saved her job, but that is perhaps no longer the case," William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams said in a statement. "It's almost impossible for us to predict what's going to happen," Adams told Reuters by phone, explaining that due to the uncertainty, the bookmaker was not able to price the different outcomes.

    UK forced to accelerate planned reform to gambling regulations

    Culture minister Jeremy Wright said a previously announced cut to the maximum stake on fixed-odds betting terminals (FOBTs) would now take place next April. Last month, the government announced in its budget that the cut, from 100 pounds to just two pounds, would take place in October 2019. Several lawmakers have called for curbs on FOBTs, which have been widely blamed for allowing gamblers to rack up large losses in a short space of time.

    UK brings forward planned changes to gambling regulations

    Britain will bring forward a planned cut to the maximum stake on fixed-odds betting terminals by six months to April 2019, culture minister Jeremy Wright said in a statement to parliament on Wednesday. Earlier this month sports minister Tracey Crouch resigned, accusing the government of delaying to October the planned cut to the maximum stake from 100 pounds to just two pounds. Wright said a planned increase in Remote Gaming Duty, paid by online gaming operators, would also be brought forward to April to cover the negative impact on the public finances.

    William Hill signs casino sports-betting deal in U.S. push

    Confirming an overnight report by Sky News, the UK-based firm said it had agreed to pay $50 million (£38.87 million) in stock, subject to a 3-5 year lock-up, as well as a 20 percent stake in its U.S. business and a share of profits from its licences under the deal. The deal follows a Supreme Court ruling in May that lifted a broad ban on sports betting and follows moves by rival GVC Holdings (GVC.L) and Dublin-based bookmaker Paddy Power (PPB.I) to partner with other U.S. casino chains. The deal covers 26 Eldorado casinos in 13 states and will lead to William Hill opening sportsbooks in five properties within weeks, the company said.
