Game machines replace the slot machines in the European versions of {{game|Platinum}}, including the UK release, as a result of changes in the classification standards at {{wp|Pan European Game Information|PEGI}}<ref>[http://www.gamesradar.com/european-pokemon-platinums-missing-game-corner-explained/ European Pokemon Platinum's missing Game Corner explained | GamesRadar]</ref>. In addition, European versions of {{game|Platinum}} removed all references to slot machine gameplay.<ref>[https://web.archive.org/web/20090528100341/http://members.optusnet.com.au/itoshiki/gamecorner-textchanges.html Hiroshi Sotomura - Game Corner text changes]</ref> Since the slot machines are integral to obtaining [[TM64]] in all other versions, European versions of Platinum will occasionally reward the player with the TM while talking to the Game Corner's receptionist.
Game machines allow players to interact with the machine and find anywhere from 5 to 20 [[coin]]s in a machine each day. This is the only extent of the interactivity with game machines; there isn't really a game to be played. However, NPCs seem to be able to play the game, as [[Looker]] protests when the machine he is at displays "Game over".
