UDC supplied a range of amusement games and support services for the reception, that took place on Wednesday evening 21st November 2018, including toy cranes such as ‘Toy Town’, redemption machines such as the Benchmark Games ‘Fireball’ and ‘Pop It And Win’ games for guests to play for fun and to experience the delights of these fun family friendly games that are found in FECs and seaside arcades all around the country.


The reception celebrated the successes of our industry and its contribution to the tourism sector and the UK economy. BACTA is the trade association for the amusement machine industry and its supply chain. Its 500 members comprises the owners and operators of Family Entertainment Centres (FECs) at the seaside, inland Adult Gaming Centres, companies that hire machines to pubs and clubs as well as the manufacturers and distributors of all types of amusement machines, such as fruit machines, pool tables, pinballs, videos, jukeboxes, penny falls and crane grabs. 

Seaside arcades, or Family Entertainment Centres (FECs) as they are officially known, are often the primary attraction in coastal destinations, offering a vital element of the traditional British seaside holiday. These venues provide local jobs, help to stimulate growth in the local economy and contribute to the national economy through machine revenue and tax receipts.
