Summary

This proposal aims to define tags for various gambling venues. It does not cover gambling activities in venues in which gambling is not the main activity, such as lottery tickets available in news agents, and slot machines in pubs.

The proposal can be summarized as follows:

  • A new tag leisure=adult_gaming_centre is proposed for venues with slot machines (but without croupiers and table games), which are perceived as distinct from both casinos and amusement arcades.
  • The tag amenity=gambling is duplicate with bookmakers, lottery shops, casinos, and adult gaming centres. These categories are now explicitly excluded from amenity=gambling, as each of them already have their own tag.
  • The proposal of the other tags confirms current usage.

This proposal comprises the following tags:

shop=bookmaker A shop that takes bets on sporting and other events at agreed upon odds.
shop=lottery A shop of which the main purpose is the sale of lottery tickets.
amenity=casino A gambling venue with at least one table game.
leisure=adult_gaming_centre A venue with gambling machines.
leisure=amusement_arcade A venue with pay-to-play games.
amenity=gambling A place for gambling, not being a bookmaker, lottery shop, casino, or adult gaming centre.
leisure=video_arcade DISCOURAGED, use leisure=amusement_arcade instead.
shop=betting DISCOURAGED, use shop=bookmaker, shop=lottery, amenity=casino, leisure=amusement_arcade, or amenity=gambling instead.
shop=gambling DISCOURAGED, use shop=bookmaker, shop=lottery, amenity=casino, leisure=amusement_arcade, or amenity=gambling instead.

Background

Related proposals

The tags for amenity=casino and shop=bookmaker have been proposed but these proposals have been abandoned. The other tags are de facto. There has also been an (abandoned) proposal for the gambling=* key space.

Current use

There are currently various tags for gambling-related shops and amenities in use. They include the following tags (together with frequency of usage):

amenity=casino 1089
amenity=gambling 877
shop=bookmaker 526
shop=betting 496
leisure=video_arcade 221
shop=lottery 192
shop=gambling 113
amenity=amusement_arcade 11

To see how these tags are used, I compared the tagging of some larger gambling chains.

  • William Hill and Ladbrokes are bookmakers.
  • Fair Play, Merkur, Löwen Play, and Fenikss call themselves casinos, but have no croupiers, only machines.
  • Holland Casino is a chain of large casinos with croupiers.
  • ONCE, Charlitto, Lotto and Lottózó are lotteries.

The distribution is as follows:

TOTAL William Hill Ladbrokes Fair Play Merkur Löwen Play Fenikss Holland Casino ONCE Charlitto Lotto Lottózó
amenity=casino 1089 1 1 6 22 21 0 6 0 0 0 1
amenity=gambling 877 18 17 3 14 14 7 1 0 6 0 0
shop=bookmaker 526 109 101 0 0 9 0 0 0 0 0 0
shop=betting 496 92 90 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 0
leisure=video_arcade 221 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0
shop=lottery 192 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 6 0 9 0

amenity=amusement_arcade 11 0 0 0 0 3 0 0 0 0 0 0

  • shop=newsagent: A shop primarily selling newspapers, and magazines, which might also sell lottery tickets. Such shops might even be named after a lottery, such as German 'Lottoladen', but should still be tagged as shop=newsagent.

  • I approve this proposal I approve this proposal. Good proposal with examples and documentation. Although I'm not a fan of leisure=adult_gaming_centre - it just doesn't feel intuitive to me. Especially as it should be only for "venues with slot machines" - so why not call it something like slot_machines_venue (I'm obviously not a native speaker ;-) ) --Imagic (talk) 07:42, 9 January 2014 (UTC)
  • I approve this proposal I approve this proposal. I like it in general, but there's one detail I don't like - but I don't think this affects voting. This proposal splits gambling features to shop, leisure and amenity as tags. I would propose to add a tag gambling=* and replace amenity=gambling by it. Amenity=gambling is not compatible to be combined with cafe, bar, pub etc., which might be a common combination; and using gambling=* (which might be yes instead of amenity=gambling, but bookmaker, lottery, casino and so on in the other cases). Nevertheless in general I approve this proposal. --Jongleur (talk) 10:11, 9 January 2014 (UTC)
This proposal 'does not cover gambling activities in venues in which gambling is not the main activity'. The proposed tags are thus not meant to be combined with amenity=cafe etc. I agree that a key gambling= might make sense to tag gambling opportunities in cafes etc. Math1985 (talk) 12:25, 10 January 2014 (UTC)
  • I approve this proposal I approve this proposal. I'm gonna also have to disagree specifically with Jongleur; Casinos typically have a lot of other actual amenities. amenity=* is already overloaded, this handles the situation better. Paul Johnson (talk) 16:16, 9 January 2014 (UTC)

  • I oppose this proposal I oppose this proposal. See my comments on the talk page. By the way, it is bad manner to start voting just after someone started discussion on the talk page. --Fkv (talk) 04:48, 13 January 2014 (UTC)
The current proposal is the result of consensus achieved on the tagging mailing list, and has been discussed since September. I had not seen your comments on the Talk page. I admit I should have checked it before starting the proposal, and I would like to offer my excuses for not having done that. However, I don't think it matters for the final result, which is wide support for the proposal. Math1985 (talk) 01:00, 19 January 2014 (UTC)
