The maximum stake that can be gambled on each turn on a B3 fruit machine, found in adult gaming centres and bingo premises, is to rise from £1 to £2 under proposals set out today.
Alongside this measure, bingo halls and arcades will also be able to offer more of this type of machine, which has a maximum prize limit of £500.
At the moment adult gaming centres are only allowed a maximum of four B3s while bingo premises can have up to eight. The change will mean 20 per cent of their overall total of gaming machines can be B3s.
