There have been 1000 items by nails (Search limited from 19-December 08)
there isn't a central location for bpaks at the moment (that i know of), the fmedb (http://www.fmedb.com) will be hosting bpaks for t7 games in the future, i will pm you later when im back in from work with more info.
yes there is, its called barcrest!
but you have to have an account and be in the trade
I think it is very easy to be so blase over the action been taken.
Iv'e never(thankfully) been part of a family who have lost a relative through their exposure to the addiction of gambling.
Yet my best friends in-law took his own life in Feb of this year through mainly bookmakers and FOBT'S!
And the guilt of his brother lives on today,especially as he and other family members turned not only a blind eye
(to his more than clear problems)but his own brother who he rented from,evicted him only a month before he sadly
took his own life. Completely tragic beyond words.
And he and thousands of other individual's have also sadly lost their lives through a vicious cycle of addictive gambling.
And yes I more than agree with pbb's point,people are hooked by many forms and outlets of gambling and they are
not just taking their life's and getting into difficulty through bookmakers alone.
And yes Nails some of us may have more will power than others,but many people get to a point of no return.
I know iv'e too been there as I know many members have experienced similar situations.
What ever the reasons are behind the move. I will cheer the day the vile machines are changed.
The sooner the better,why wait till April,change them now!
Bookmakers will never lose out and there staff will get other jobs eventually.
Yet peoples life's destroyed and lost can never be repaired fully nor loved ones reincarnated.
For every person that is saved(when the vile units are changed) then that and that alone above everything,is all that counts and matters.
And yes a huge shake up across the industry needs to take place,this is only the start of a very long journey.
ive self excluded guys for the same thing, its no different alcohol, drugs, gambling. you say bookmakers will never lose out? i hypothesis that with the implementation of a £2 stake, many shops will shut and then some of the big names will simply shut the doors because gambling is finished in betting shops. Why take 2/1 in a shop when its 4/1 or 5/1 on betfair.
greyhound racing is in decline, betting in shops was dwarfed by the fobt stakes etc etc. im NOT sticking up for betting shops absolutely not, my point was the old showmen are corrupt and it was all for personal gain.
question - when £2 a stake kicks in, do you think gamblers anon will have more, less or the same numbers ???? exactly the same, because gamblers will spunk their money on what ever moves.
Please can someone explain what Cat C and Cat B all mean? Confused dot com lol.
im surprised you ask since you've been playing machines for some time, however off the top of my head here it is -
cat a1 unlimited stake/prize
cat b1 - £5 £10,000 jp
cat b2 - £100 £500jp
cat b3 - £2 £500 jp
cat b4 - £2 £400 club machines
cat b5 (doesnt exist yet but was proposed to be a maximim of £10 commited credit and £500jp)
category c £1 £100 (£2 £150 proposed)
cat d 10p £5 jp (proposed 20p and a whopping £10 jackpot)
hope that helps, peeps please feel free to correct me
As i've said before, this has NOTHING to do with protection of the vulnerable. This was a ploy used by the amusement trade association BACTA to have leverage and go for a level playing field.
Arcades by definition are not betting shops or casinos. If they wanted to protect the players then why on earth were they looking at £2 play £150 on a cat c, and the possibility of a cat b5 with mega/ultra spins. Its darn right two faced.
There are plenty of people here who want rid of them, and im sure the pathetic stories of how the machines broke them will filter through. I too lost more money than i care to mention, but im a man for fu*k sake and i chose not to go back.
This move will see thousands lose their jobs, all for the sake of lining the pockets of the arcade owners, that the bottom line. What BACTA should have done is looked after their own members and not poked around in other people business. Now there will be betting shops converted to adult gaming centers, and the likes of ladbrokes etc. have deep pockets when it comes to kitting out shops. they will have the best machines, tito enabled to securely thrive a business. The likes of the family run `show boat` amusements wont stand a chance. Now they have lost their customers.
I will be interested to see what scientific games has up their sleeve. They will not have taken the acquisition of Barcrest and global draw lightly, and now with the absence of cat b2, they need to produce something by April next year.
To clarify, im disgusted by Bacta and what it has achieved, Placing somebody inside parliament (Jason frost, Plymouth) was actually a good move, i take my hat off, but it will cause many many individuals to lose their jobs to try and line the pockets of arcade owners. I do hope somebody from the organisation has the balls to answer.
In a nutshell, Bellfruit have killed the fruit machine off with DOND and clones that nobody other than a player wants to touch. £20 for a board - f that.
as for the likes of say betcom, they just steal the idea and re-badge it.
Barcrest have missed an absolute trick here. their games were genuine originals with a decent game play.
What i would do to play an updated razzle dazzle or lineup in a pub these days. Losing is one thing, but value for money is another.
Onhax.me is to do with game cracks & hacks.
I use chrome and firefox, no issues with chrome.
Maybe you been on a dodgy site.
I dont like edge.
Chrome says the site maybe harmful before it loads so beware.
the only extensions are adblocker and adblocker pro.
how is it happening ?
Has anybody else noticed advertising pop-ups now appearing on chrome? it appears that chrome itself has advertising built-in to chrome now and this re-directs via the onhax.me domain to give you pop-ups based on your history and/or cookies.
I've installed Malwarebytes (trial) and this conforms that chrome (without extensions) is the culprit.
does anybody else have any in put into this? i cant believe i may have to revert back to Microsoft Edge - and i never thought id say that
