Note that in some countries like Germany there will always be also video
arcades or other games that don't allow to win money because there is a law
that requests for any number of x gambling machines also one machine where
you can't win (money). You don't have this necessarily in pubs (because I
think if they only put 2 gambling machines they do not have to, maybe 2 is
also the absolute limit for a pub in order not to be classified as a
gambling place (and hence they would have to close at 10pm and couldn't
sell alcoholic drinks any more)).
