Skill with prize machines (SWPs)
There are no statutory limits in place regulating stakes and prizes for SWPs, however, the Commission and HMRC are of the view that it is unlikely that a maximum prize greater than £50 would be commercially viable in a genuine skill game.
A voluntary limit had previously been agreed between machine manufacturers and trade bodies, limiting the price of one game to £1 and the maximum prize to £50 (wholesale value).
