I'm against them, I have been for years - however I do have to pose the question:
In that same bookmaker I can put thousands of pounds, in one go, on a horse.
What's the difference?
The difference is the formula of gambling. I work at Cheltenham race course during the season but don't place bets on horses. It's just not something I like to do it's not for me. The races are not every 20 seconds even at several meetings.
The thing is you say about all these job losses etc. But the point is these jobs where not here 18/24/36 months ago. Its only due to the greedy companies trying to get around the minimum 4 machines per shop rules by placing two or more shops within 1 minutes walk of each other that all these insecure jobs exist.
The rules should not just apply to shops but also online too. Any gambling that takes place in the UK should be restricted regardless of where your business is registered. Seaside towns should limit the age to 17 for slot machines and 12 years for 2p 10p pushers.
The bookies are failing to there own greed. Live by the sword die by the sword.
The government will just look away,the amount of tax they receive from these is too much to get rid of em. My view is they should never have had these in betting shops in the first place.
The David James bookies was a place I went to a lot. He says in the video that if they took away the machines he would be forced to close down but he has had that shop for well over 30 years so how did they cope before they came out. Surly it would just be back to how it was just bang them all on £100 jackpots with £1 stake job done.
Great work again Vectra. Looks like your skills have greatly improved from your early days so well done and keep it up fella. Sure I saw you in Gloucester spoos recently? Anyways is there anyway to speed up the emu like in the olden days? I blew my gaming pc cpu up trying to overclock it lol. So in the meantime while saving up for the new i7 7700k cpu I have a shite laptop running win 7 on dual cpu 1.46Ghz 1.47Ghz with 2GB ram the old epoch machines run fine as do the bwb video games as do the party times or multi playing machines but these newer s5 machines and the adder5 machine run like total garbage. I mean it takes around 3 to 4 seconds for the reels to spin when playing features its hell and there is like a weird delay once the spin has finished before you can spin again.
Any ideas buddy. The old emu had the option to speed up the machine which was great but I canny find it in the new emu.
Thank you. Yours will be my very first ever MFME V5.0 machine to be played on the new emu. Can't believe I've only blinked and missed so much over the last couple of weeks haha, Layout looks really good from the photo so well done.
Thanks Guitar, so gutted I missed out on all the behind the scenes stuff in Amber 2.0. Still great to final play an Epoch machine on the computer just waiting for london underground duff beer guide and beaver las vegas to be done then I will be a happy chappy.
Yes wishing all the flood victims a speedy recovery and hope they all try and have a good Christmas, as Vectra said we had it very bad here in 2007 so know the stress they are going through and for them even more so at this special time of year.
Also wishing all my friends and members a Happy Christmas and hope you all have a fantastic 2016 :-)
If anyone doesn't have this one yet then feel free to message me for the link and you can do with it as you please. Or if I can post the link in here Aamusements what ever is easier. I may try and add it as a torrent or if someone else wants to then cool.
I won 5k a couple of months back. I also managed to get it all on camera so no one could say it was free play (youtube joke). I would post the link to the video but I fear that a member on here will continue to harass me on here as well as youtube. I have had to delete dozens of messages and the sod has even take a screen shot of one of my videos with me in it and is using it as his youtube picture. I have complained to youtube but they didn't do bugger all so I just blocked him but he set up another account and continued to bug me. The KING is dead lets leave it that way.
It's only the first day and already I am sick of it. I live a few minutes walk from Kingsholm stadium where tomorrow Tong and Georgia fight it out. The parties have already started and some clubs have decided to open 24 hours even the local nightclub which opens at 10pm opened it's doors at 12 noon today.
Then on Wednesday we have Japan and Scotland and I am not going to be looking forward to that, not if Scotland lose anyway it will be chaos!
Am I the only one who is already annoyed with the world cup? Surely I can't be.
