Should high-stakes gambling machines be banned from the high street?

Punters can bet up to 100 pounds every twenty seconds on the casino-style games. MPs have described them as "the crack cocaine of gambling" in the past - and critics say they are addictive...

But who is FINALLY responsible - the betting shop that installs the machine - or the person who uses it?

Should high-stakes gambling machines be banned from the high street?
