Walking into pubs these days, it is no longer a curiosity that there would be free pub machines in one corner. The presence of these machines are now considered to be a necessity, otherwise, the economic downturn will bring the joy of the pub-goers down along with it. To make the pub more successful, it is necessary to have these fruit machines.
Running a pub is no longer as simple as one would expect. These are the days where the economy is taking grips, not only with the finances and employment of the many people, but their need for entertainment as well. In the past, pubs were the place to go to unwind, have a few drinks with friends, play some cards of pool, even darts, and just have plain old fun. When in the past the music kept people spending, today, this has all changed.
Pubs today take advantage of the free pub machines within their premises. These can actually contribute to, at the very least, 10% of the pub’s income, in some cases, to as much as 50%. This is an amount that cannot be ignored. It is a fact that more and more are going to pubs sitting in misery and not buying anything but a pint of beer, if anything else. It is to the benefit to have these machines within the pub to add to the income.
These days, governments now allow clubs and pubs to have their own free pub machines. These are miniature lottery system providers that the pub goers can enjoy. For as long as 20% of the profits are donated to charities, any profits that had been earned from the fruit machines can be utilized for whatever purpose the owner sees fit.
These machines can be installed for free, without any need for licenses either. All the owners have to do is to pay for whatever tickets had been sold, after which, any other money left in the machine belongs to the business.
