30th July 2020


It has been confirmed this lunchtime that amusement arcades will be able to open from 24th August.  This indicative date, subject to review on the 20th, is a bitter blow to members in Scotland who have been ready to go ever since we were told that the 22nd July was stated as the original re-opening date.


I have today reached out to media contacts in Scotland to see if we can get the story into the public domain.  Our key focus now has to be ensuring that the SG provides the support necessary for businesses to survive the winter.


The SG also stated that machines in pubs, bookmakers and other venues would still be advised against via the FAQ (circulated previously) that it has issued to the licensed trade. 


Here is a link to the updated Road Map.


Kind Regards,
