    As Stu In Nottingham said, I think most of the time people have a gambling niche - I’ve spent a reasonable amount of money on the FOTB machines in the past (haven’t touched them for years, have no interest now) but I never had any interest in betting on animals etc or the lottery things they do. At the time if they’d taken the machines out the shop I just wouldn’t have been there, I wouldn’t have been interested in the other forms of gambling.

    What I always found strange was that I played roulette on they daft machines, but when I go to the casino (or when I went to the casinos when I did gamble on the FOBT) I have no interest in gambling at all, I couldn’t enjoy casinos for some reason. My vice was definitely FOBT and FOBT only.

    I can relate to that in that I'm kind of the opposite. Love my horses and various sports betting but very rarely play casino style games (although have done in my younger years). I've also seen me end up in the casino on a night out and sit at the bar while my friends (who generally don't bet as much as me) go off and play various casino games!

    However I think someone with a 'serious gambling problem' will find a way to punt their money regardless of what machines and stakes are available.
