Surprised to see the amount of Cat C machines out going up...

Look how much more FOBTs take! Pretty much twice as much as every other category added together! If that's not evidence there's something up with them then I don't know what is. Does depend on what the tax rates are though.

Whatever happens - if anything - I'd expect them to get it wrong.

Ooh new jackpots coming on strong!

That'll finish off any lingering old decent games for good lol!

Will be interesting though, always seems to be money to be made early on jackpot increases

I don't know. I'd expect there to be an upgrade for powers as they're not that old. Perfects were old and they got an upgrade, though it was expensive if I remember right

They were a 70 jackpot originally!!!!

Imagine how dead they'd go on 150 after it's done!

I have to say I thought you'd realise straight away - slasher now knows - I bet Gambo knows without even thinking about it.

I suppose I should technically say 'it can't be upgraded in it's present state on an analog basis' to be exact.

They are still popular and there are a lot out there so wouldn't be surprises if they do an upgrade for them

Are they on drugs?!

£2.50 stake on B3 but same old £500 JACKPOT

£2.00 stake on Cat C with £150 JACKPOT, no thanks

The industry is fucked!

For Cat C 150 JP was expected - they could have left the stake at £1  Angry - guess the stakes will be 50p/£1/£2 so bye bye 25p

But the jackpot is already £150 effectively, so all they're doing is doubling the stake.

£2 per play for a pub fruit machine? Bunch of fucking crackheads.

£2 play for an essentially unwinnable £150 jackpot at 74% payout.
That's the end of AWPs then

Well yes so the £150 jackpot will just be blocked until it can afford £150 instead of £100, Timmy will force them just the same. And there'll still be compensated (not rigged!) deal games offered early that make sure wins of £15-£25 are the norm.

Oh yeah and Category B5 seems like a blatant attempt to get high roller in pubs!

Betcom already tried a Bank Job that could do £200 rather than £150 all that happened was you put in between £180 - £220 for it and god help you if it did a snake flat!

AWP might as well be renamed BFLOMBMMMB Bollocks for loss or money back money money money back!
