As we approach Easter and the traditional start of the fairground season fairground operators are being reminded that they must follow the rules for buying, maintaining and operating gaming machines.

 

The key points to remember are:

 

  • Low-stake (category D) fruit machines can be made available at fairgrounds along with coin pushers and crane grab machines
  • Higher stake gaming machines (category B and C), like those typically played in arcades and pubs, are not permitted
  • Fairground operators must source all their machines from Gambling Commission licensed suppliers
  • All employees working with gaming machines must be at least 18 years old.

 

An easy to print quick guide to the rules for fairgrounds is available on the GC website, as well as details of the stakes and prizes for category D machines.
