Gaming Content Company Campaigns against U.K. Terminals

6 October 2008

Prime Table Games, a gaming content company, launched a national press campaign today to rid United Kingdom high street bookmakers of fixed odds betting terminals.

According to a prepared statement, the company believes the terminals “offer unfair odds for players and exploit vulnerable sections of the community.”

The group is inviting people to sign an online petition to government officials regarding the terminals.

“Gambling should be fun, open and fair -- but these terminals offer players little hope,” said Derek Webb of Prime Table Games, in a prepared statement. “The theoretical amount per bet that players lose on many bets is higher, and the actual percentage of player cash-ins that players lose is higher. In addition, the probability that players will lose all their available cash on a session is much higher.”
