Just saw this:

Was skeptical as it was published on 1st April on another gambling news site but managed to find it on UKGC's actual website.

Looks like they're removing turbo spins from games and preventing under 25's from joining VIP programs among other measures.

Only skimmed it quickly so interested what anyone's thoughts are!

It looks like @Team.Videoslots will have to remove the ability to utilise split screen slots...


Safer products
These groups were tasked with developing an industry code for responsible product and game design. Industry commitment from this work so far includes:



  • A minimum spin speed of 2.5 seconds on all slots.
  • Removal of game features which may encourage intensive play such as slam stops and turbo buttons.
  • Removal of split-screen slots which have been associated with potential loss of control.
  • A more detailed work plan which will include in-game messaging and the creation of a Betting and Gaming Council Testing Lab to look into other game features.
  • Publication of the final code in September 2020.

Still no sign of anything useful from this bunch then...like abolishing pending periods??

Can they PLEASE leave our game play alone and focus their efforts on the things that actually matter.

To be fair, I do think that the turbo spins do take the piss. Take the Pragmatic turbo play for example, how the hell is the server even able to communicate so stupidly fast? :D

On a lot of sites you get lag between spins, even with turbo spins- probably for the very reason you mention. VS is one of these sites.

I've only played one or two sites where you get 'true' turbo spins.

Wazdan takes the piss its possible spin so fast your balance changes without any idea what happened.
You're on point on them focusing on the things which really don't make any difference though, makes me think they're under the control of the big UK bookies with how they act

I’m in regular contact with my ‘contact’ at both the asa and the ukgc.
don’t worry about hairbrained schemes, many measures are being discussed at present ;-)

Why dont they just ban the whole online gambling, rather than make the experience shittier and shittier every month. Then we can all play offshore at casinos where you can play like an adult and are not subject to forensic financial examination at the casinos whim!!

Will almost be like we Swedes have it.
2.5sec instead of 3 tho.
On alot of slots there is really not much difference, if any at all. Like megaways slots, and certain "slower" spinning slots already take about 3 seconds to finish a spin, so makes no difference.
But slots that spin fast feel clunky as hell with the delay.

Playngo slots for example start spinning the reels the moment you press, but they dont start landing straight away, just kind of spins in place for 1.5sec.
Some providers have like a full 3 sec stop before anything starts landing, making the total delay waaaay longer than 3 sec.
And some providers have the spin happening like "normal" and a 3 sec delay after the spin is finished, also making it waaay longer than 3 sec on most slots.
Overall, it makes alot of slots alot less enjoyable to play, and i did not use to activate turbo/quickspin or make "stopspins" before the delay.

I think a much better way would be to have it as an option to "lock away" quickspin/stopspin and get the delay on spins instead of forcing it on everyone.
Ruins the fun for responsible players more than it helps problem gamblers imo.

If a slot annoys me with slow spins, or even frequent crashing, it does not help me to gamble sensibly. Frustration is not a good mix with gambling, and this is introducing artificial frustration, what was the point of bringing in SOWS and affordable gambling checks if not to make sure people could afford to gamble, now past that hurdle they have to endure imposed paint drying boredom speed :rolleyes:

I can see people playing at higher stakes and just doing less spins, increase the potential for a decent base game hit and leave. I'd rather retain the option of quicker spin speeds even if it meant a stake limit, so once you go north of £1 the spins slow down, what's wrong with trying something that has a bit of flexibility?

See quick spin is enough for me, especially for games like DOA.
Those turbo spins I can’t stand as if it’s a bad session you just watch your hard earned cash flash by like a racing snake on testosterone.
I like to enjoy my session, a drink etc..
No rush to bust or win either way.

Im not sure what kind of people are in the ukgc, but i get the feeling that the people making decisions in Spelinspektionen (our version) has little, or no knowledge at all about slots.
If they did, they would focus more on enforcing high rtp:s and the like to protect players instead of all the crap they do.
