BBPA comments on pub stakes and prizes consultation


Commenting on the announcement by DCMS of a 12-week consultation on changes to gaming machines, BBPA Chief Executive Brigid Simmonds said:

“It is disappointing that the DCMS is not proposing an increase in either stakes or prizes for pub machines, as we had proposed.

“As today’s report does recognise our evidence on the important role that machines play in pubs, this should be backed up with modest increases in stake and prize levels.

“Proportionate increases would keep machines as low-stake entertainment, whilst remaining attractive for pubgoers, so that they can continue to provide this valuable income stream for pubs.

“We will certainly be making this point in response to this latest consultation.”
