(a)in relation to a Category A, B1, B2, B3 or B3A machine, £10, or
(b)in relation to a Category B4 or C machine, £5.
(3) A committed payment is a payment of money or money’s worth where—
(a)the whole amount is used to pay a charge for use in respect of a gaming machine,
(b)the whole amount is held by or in relation to a gaming machine as a committed amount, or
(c)part is used to pay a charge for use, with the remaining amount being held by or in relation to the machine as a committed amount.
(4) In these Regulations “committed amount”, in relation to a gaming machine, means an amount of money or money’s worth—
(a)held to the credit of a person using the machine for the purposes of paying one or more charges for use, and
(b)which, immediately after it is paid or (as the case may be) immediately after the action referred to in paragraph (7) is taken in relation to it, is not recoverable by a person using the machine.
(5) Where a part (but not the whole) of a payment is treated in one of the ways described in paragraph (3) the amount of that part of the payment must not exceed the limit specified in paragraph (2) in relation to the relevant category of machine.
(6) Paragraph (5) is without prejudice to any limit which may apply to the whole of the payment by virtue of regulation 7.

(b)held by or in relation to the machine as a committed amount, or
(c)partly used to pay a charge for use, with the remaining amount held by or in relation to the machine as a committed amount,
that action is to be treated for the purposes of this regulation as the making of a committed payment.
