Commission raps Quest Gaming

12/11/2010

The Gambling Commission has been forced to make a new statement on the subject of the boundary between gaming machines and skills with prizes machines (SWPs) following recent publications by Quest Gaming Ltd regarding a machine called Skill Stop Roulette. The publications include an advertisement placed in the Morning Advertiser on 28 October 2010.

The Commission states: “Quest Gaming Ltd has misrepresented the Gambling Commission’s position with regard to Skill Stop Roulette. The Commission has made it clear to Quest Gaming Ltd that it suspects Skill Stop Roulette machines to be gaming machines on the basis of their presentation alone. This is irrespective of whether the Commission’s ongoing criminal investigation establishes the machines are also defined as games of chance by their operational nature.

In addition to the previous general warning, the Commission warns anyone making Skill Stop Roulette machines available for use without the appropriate licences or permissions that they may be liable for prosecution.”

Further information about skills with prize machines is available on through this link on the Gambling Commission website.
