Central London shops and businesses hoping to receive a much-needed boost from Black Friday (Nov 26) sales were hit by disruption to the tube network as drivers held their biggest strike since 2018.
Promotions that everyone just signs up for will be slot online credited, which is real money, into the gaming account immediately.
The 24-hour strike, which started at 0430 GMT (12.30pm, Singapore time), led to the suspension of the Piccadilly, and Waterloo and City lines, and delays on the Jubilee, Central, Victoria and Northern lines.
Transport for London (TfL) said it was running 58 per cent of its usual services.
The walkout of 2,000 Rail, Maritime and Transport union (RMT) members came after disagreements over TfL's plans to make tube drivers take on shifts at night.
The strikes targeted the five lines where TfL used to employ dedicated Night Tube drivers, with the Waterloo and City line also suspended as it shares many of its drivers with the Central line.
The Friday and Saturday Night Tube service was suspended during the pandemic. It was due to restart with a limited service on Saturday.
Joe Swaffham, 36, who commutes from North Greenwich to Moorgate to work for a maintenance firm, said his journey took twice as long and made him 45 minutes late for work.
