I wonder if this would mean you couldn't gamble a pie as your stake would be over £2

That's probably the price of spinning the reels or the wheel etc not the prize gamble so probably you still could, like you can gamble prizes on other games, idk....but at least roulette would probably end then as it would be shit on the equivalent of £70 jackpot!

Never understood how bookies get to offer £50 spins on slots, yet the same game in an arcade doesn't have the option?

Because they above 2 pound stakes are b2 games not b3, only lbo and casinos are allowed b2

It's bit harsh on arcades, really how come with bookies already making millions of the fobts they are allowed 50 quid spins but arcade only up to 2 quid bit of a strange one who decides the rules.

It only seems like yesterday when you could pop in the bookies and play a decent fruit, 15 quid crazy fruits, a barcrest big game, Jpm red arrow, spartscash and the like, where spending 50 quid on that fruit would be highly unlikely and be a pretty bad day, how things have changed to what we have now, unreal really, to what fruities will of made bookies compared to now, either way whoever came up with the FOBT concept has made lots of bookies ridiculous amounts of cash, bet they couldn't believe their luck when looking at the months first takings since replacing the conventional fruity.

Just to ad I wouldn't want fruits back in the bookies either as unfortunately fruits are now depressingly gash, really bad, the days of gridrunner, Kung fu, frenzy, red alert in the the bookies are well and truly a pipe dream, never mind back to trying to get the pots on the Irish themed machine, rainbow riches I think it might be called ???

The bookies will know more about the product than the people who review it and spin round the issues.

Probably more warnings or limits on how you can log on than £2 a spin restrictions.

On 500's you can still lose loads on £2 a spin.  So I don't see why roulette would change.

Anyway my view non of it matters.  It is all to do with money, like it or not.  Bookies have invested millions in to shops to house these and money does talk.  

My personal odds are for not much to change 1/10 and major changes 4-1

yes you can lose alot on £2 but you can't go on super tilt and completely lose your head for an hour and have it cost you several months' wages!

obv the slots are bad but it is roulette that is the most serious offender?

You can actually lose your £50 faster on those dreadful fortune spins now than roulette if you land on the 2 Pay Fuck All Spins option!

It won't change in regard to dropping bet size or amount wagered. To much tax to lose is at stake, more silly ideas to prevent problem gambling will be the answer sadly. In my much hated opinion fobts ruined the highstreet bookmakers and pushed the fruit manufacturers into the state they are now...dire. I do still play the fruits,will have the odd battle (rarely) almost never to profit but I enjoy it if i find a decent game, the other time gambling is either online or sports bets which tbh I've had a lot more profit from and less losses than when I played fruits!..I was never a player and the fobts never intrssted me for such huge stakes and losses for so little gain...happy punting all Smile

for sure! higher stakes and fast action is what makes them "the creaky coke can of gammmbling"!

stick to £2 and it is hard to get too much of a buzz after you are a monkey in!

bit like the difference between snorting a gram of half decent coke over an hour or sherbet!

My days of the recreational drug are well over..I've had debts that make the biggest loss on here look like timmys lost his rent money again lol!.. I'm a vip on a few sites and fancy a bit of streaming,sent a few emails to the 2 sites I play at, may be a bit hard as I can only stream 2 weeks possibly only one a month max,wen I play tho now it's usually a £1 plus stake so more interesting than some streamers with 50p 80p bets, will see what the sites say and take it from there, just a bit of interest for me as am loving online and that'll help hence with donations and bonuses awarded

yeah donations, youtube views and utilising bonuses can potentially outweigh the 3 or 4% edge online slots have.

I've almost given up though coz that orange fucking rapist doesn't even use rhino spit anymore and i have been walking like john wayne for months!

for sure, but then again all gambling is fun when you have a few beers and end up winning?! better than sex (well unless it's not with your own mrs!)

Correct!..some of the streamers perceive they gamble there own cash, when infact the majority is donations and bonus cash, very few if any actually bankroll it personally. I'd obviously require a few bonuses but id happily put a fair amount of my own in say twice a week for a high roller session as its only what id spend on my own personally

My guess would be

cat C, £100, repeats allowed twice, long shot three repeats plus (maybe even a series of 5x100 allowed)

B1 no change

B2, £100 stake, prize £1000, speed of play increased to 30sec games up fro 20 secs.

B3, £5 stake, £1000 jackpot, long shot £5 stake/£2k jackpot.

B4 , no change

A1, no change, long shot that its allowed and progressive linked nationwide slots allowed.

Streamers will lose in the long run just like everyone else, they get donations initially but then they'll hit a point where everyone that wants to follow them is following and I often get the feeling that some feel that they HAVE to stream

Meanwhile the online casinos are absolutely loving it as it is basically free advertising for them!

I like your proposed changes Russ!

My proposed changes would be:

Cat D - 10p/£5 increased to 20p/£10
Cat C - £100 JP with 2 repeats max (to £300)
Cat B4 - no change, so £400 JP
Cat B3 - switchable stake/JP between £1/£500 and £2/£1000
Cat B2 - £30/£1000 for both roulette and power spins slots
Cat B1 - no change
Cat A - to be introduced (a super casino!)
