In Germany and many other European countries we do have bars, pubs and restaurants with gambling machines inside. They are no real gambling centers nor "casinos" but are normally small places that do have these machines inside. Nevertheless from my perspective they give a different flair to the place. I don't want to argue if it is good or bad but it is different. So I would say it is worth mapping it.

Does anyone know how we could tag such places? Would the following work:



I could not find in the Wiki if the tag gambling is used in this combination.

There's no problem with adding a gambling=* value to amenity=pub, amenity=bar etc. This combination is not called out specifically in the wiki, but it is currently in use in Europe (mainly France and Germany.)

Thank you very much for your answer. Great I did not know that. I will do it as you described. Do you think there is the need to add this to the Wiki?

Sure why not? I updated to reflect this usage.
