Gaming and Lotteries Act, 1956

Prohibition of slot-machines.

10.—(1) No person shall operate or cause or permit to be operated or provide facilities for the operation of any slot-machine designed to deliver, when successfully operated, a money prize or a token or other article which the promoter or any person acting on his behalf undertakes or is willing to exchange for money or money's worth or which may be used to enable the machine to be operated again.

(2) A person who has given money or money's worth in exchange for a token or other article delivered from a slot-machine shall be deemed, if not himself the promoter of the machine, to be acting on behalf of the promoter unless the contrary is shown.

(3) This section does not apply to a machine which is designed for amusement only and, when successfully operated, delivers no more than the amount of the stake and bears a notice explaining that it is of that kind.
