Looking forward to when you can put some new vids up from bookies/arcade

TBH, I have got a bit bored with the online stuff. In fact it has put me right off playing even though you cut out the monotonous base play. Some of the bonuses are disgracefully low.

I quite liked the vids you did concentrating on one slot and trying to get all the bonuses including at different stakes. Also maybe review some slots which have good base game play?

I'd agree with you there stormy, am looking forward to the variety that bookies and arcades bring.

I don't know the rules for bookies in 2 weeks time, but I'm assuming we will be back to the dreadful 15 minute time limit? I've also just got a text from admiral asking me to sign a petition to try and get arcades open safely before 17th May.

the fobts kick you off now and lock the termimal when the 15 limit is hit

Yep! It's not looking like there can be any worthwhile game play until at least May. Does anybody know what would happen if you were in the middle of a bonus and you reached your 15 minutes?

I assume the ticket will come out with whatever the total was due 

I must say now you have your own FOBT I can't sée what the appeal would be playing in the bookies 

I was hoping at least once a week you would have a video with your home machine, so far we have only had 3 videos, even if you try on a non stop and step day like Sunday would be good 🙂

omg, is this 15mins just a Covid-19 thing whilst bookies are only allowed to have a punter in the shop for 15mins at a time? Does it finish 21st June?

I'd say it will be the 17th May in line with casinos, cinemas and arcades reopening.

When we were in tier 3 the shop staff advised you that the 15 minutes were up, so they would block the terminal. The few times I went in, I set the stop watch on my phone, but the poor buggers behind the counter get worried after 10 minutes, I got the feeling it caused a lot of agro.

I guess that's up to the shop staff, I assume the fobt bonus is determined as soon as it starts, so if they locked your terminal it would spit the ticket out with what you would have won, although if it's a best strategy game like legend of Pharaohs youre snookered.

Unfortunately as soon as your 15 is up you can't collect the winnings (although you can come back later on for a second visit).

Exactly, more trouble than it is worth.

The last time I went in a bookies late last summer as usual I took a cup of Nero coffee in with me and was promptly told I couldn't drink it in the shop as I must wear a mask at all times. About half the punters had masks hanging around their necks!
