I hope they're going to be removing autoplay across the whole UK industry then? That's betting shops and Adult Gaming Centres, as well as B1 machines in casinos. Some older legacy games will no longer be supported and will have to be scrapped, physical autoplay buttons on cabinets in casinos will have to be disabled or blanked off.
If I can't play 100 spins automatically on 96.23% Fishin' Frenzy at 10p a spin online in my own home, I shouldn't be able to play 100 spins on 88% Fishin' Frenzy at 20p a spin in an AGC should I? Got to keep the punter safe...should be the same across all sectors of the industry.
