Basically yeah. They don't have £2 stakes and £72 prizes in the arcades do they. Roulette was and should be a casino game it doesn't belong on the high street or on the corner of some run down housing estate.  

so lets get this right, i can put 2 quid on a number and win 72




put 1 pound in an arcade and win 500 ?

I got an email from sky news this morning from the reporter I did an interview with. He asked how I felt and I said delighted but the new focus now is to online sites. They need to be more regulated too. Having a top stake of £400 a spin on some games is just stupid.

Same as the Nobles ones they have there name on some too. Just decal art no special program or deviation from other rip off machines they make. Probably the worlds most boring machine.

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.

Respect yall layout creators.

nah you may need the 65" plasma on its size though lol.

I have a 60" flat screen 4K smart LED TV. So I will be looking forward to playing any high res Epoch games. As for the other stuff, I will resort to my PM's to discuss current affairs.

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 :-)
