Casinos: Gaming Machines

Volume 475: debated on Tuesday 6 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what restrictions are placed on the number of slot machines in land-based casinos established under the Gaming Act 1968; and if he will review them. (203021)

[holding answer 1 May 2008]: In October 2005 the number of category B gaming machines which casinos licensed under the Gaming Act 1968 are permitted to offer was doubled to 20. Alternatively, they are permitted to offer an unlimited number of category C and category D machines. There are no plans to revisit these allocations.
