FOBTs to have facial recognition
#1
BBC News ran an article today about how shops CCTV systems will now recognise criminals including shoplifters.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-35111363

I can see full well that FOBTs will soon also employ the same cameras to "profile" the frequent players.

E.g. Mr Move It wins £100+ on Thai Flower 3 weeks in a row.  In week 4, Mr Move It arrives again and the FOBT now knows that this player has won in the 3 previous weeks, so the FOBT will now go into suck mode for the next 8 weeks.  The facial recognition will be linked across all 4 FOBTs, so it is irrelevant if the player switch FOBTs in an attempt to evade their gaming profile.  The FOBTs will also be able to detect one's age and gender, so if the player is female and 65+, the FOBT will switch to granny mode and issue big payouts even if being slow-played on 25p stake.

Conspiracy theories and all that jazz, but I can SEE it happening Hum  Hum  Hum

Totally agreed Mr Sting. Granted, it pains me when I read about 'Potty members parting with £1k+ in one sitting. However, at the end of the day, we are adults aged 18+ with mental capacity, not kids being told by the nanny state what we can spend our pocket money on :D

Gambling aside, I'm dreading the usual BBC propaganda machine come January, informing us that we are raging alcoholics over the Christmas period, telling us to cut down otherwise we'll die in the next 5 years blah blah blah.

A story a while back had some boys printing winning tickets out of a SSBT.


Of course, they called the Plod.


Where were the cameras that took the pics?
