Casino Control Commission Allows Testing for Server-Assisted Gaming

On September 5th, 2007, the New Jersey Casino Control Commission in Atlantic City took preliminary steps toward what some members of the gaming industry called the world of electronic slot machines gaming.

The New Jersey Casino Control Commission overwhelmingly voted in a four-zero decision to give permission to the casino facilities in Atlantic City to study and test the "server-assisted" gaming, the 1st step towards downloadable gambling technology.

Under the method of testing approved by the Casino Control Commission, after October 1st, 2007, the casinos can feature slot machine games that are directly linked to a central server and can download different casino games to the machine. But the result of the game would still be decided by the slot machines.

The casinos' testing period would be 270 days. The decision on what games are featured in the electronic slot machines is still with the casinos for now, not the player. But under the rules, a casino facility is not permitted to change anything about the game like the reward rates and denominations during the game or without informing the players first.

Casino officials would have to wait until the electronic slot machine has no activity for 4 minutes before making any revisions. The casino would have to also alert players when they are doing any revisions and make the machine offline for sixty seconds.
