Machines seized in Hull

09/05/2012

Hull City Council working in partnership with Humberside Police and HMRC has seized six high payment machines at two premises in the city.

After receiving intelligence, Enforcement Officers at Hull City Council along with Humberside Police and HMRC visited Café Anatolia, 93 Beverley Road and another Café on 147 Spring Bank on Thursday 12 April.

It was found that these premises were operating gaming machines that were not in accordance with an authorisation under the Gambling Act 2005.

All six machines were only authorised to be in licensed snooker clubs, members clubs and other gambling establishments such as licensed betting shops, amusement arcades and casinos.

Tim Bright, Gambling Commission Compliance Manager, said: “This is another good example of shared regulation tackling operators offering gaming machines outside of the law. We will continue to work with Hull City Council and HM Revenue and Customs to keep gambling fair and safe.”
