The Association Of British Bookmakers help maintain integrity in UK gamblingThe Association of British Bookmakers is the UK’s leading trade association in representing off-course bookmakers. The group’s objective is to help create and sustain the ideal conditions in which any socially responsible and law-abiding betting shop operator can compete and prosper.
