Gaming machine category
The gaming machine category should be clearly labelled on the body of the cabinet, as this is a legal requirement. If no category label is found, the category may be shown on the video screen.
A full list of machine categories, types of premises permitted to site machines, and machine category stakes and prizes is available in appendix A and B of the Guidance to licensing authorities.
Examples of gaming machine labels:
This label is made up of a table showing the model type, game version, serial number, category type and date of manufacture.
This label tells the customer how much can be won in any one game. The text reads: "No prize greater than the value of one hundred pounds can be won from this machine in any one game".
This label is made up of the different categories that apply to a machine. It will be printed on tamper proof material. It also shows the legacy labels for category C and D machines, as these may still be in circulation.
