John Robison – Ask the Slot Expert: Can casinos change slot paybacks electronically?

John Robison – Ask the Slot Expert: Can casinos change slot paybacks electronically?
John Robison – Ask the Slot Expert: Can casinos change slot paybacks electronically?Your article in American Casino Guide mentioned that the slot managers would order chips to change the win rate on their machines. With electronic machines in place, I would think that win rate adjustments could be changed electronically rather than by ordering specific chips to control the machine. Is this by law that the machine producer must be involved in such changes? It would appear that the electronic adjustment would allow more flexibility to the slot managers. Many aspects of slot technology on the slot floor trail behind what can be done because security measures have to be devised and slot regulators have to approve the new technology. In the early days of computer-controlled slots, the virtual reel layout table was stored on a chip. If the casino wanted to change the long-term payback on a machine, it had to order the new layout from the manufacturer and replace that chip in the machine. Depending on the jurisdiction, a slot technician at the casino could make the change, or a technician could make the change while a representative from the casino control commission observed, or someone from the commission had to make the change. And in some jurisdictions, changes were not even allowed. Every time you open up the logic drawer in a slot machine and monkey around with the components in it, you run the risk of breaking something. As a result, casinos rarely changed the long-term paybacks on the machines on their slot floor. In Las Vegas, casinos can make this change themselves. You may have noticed the collection of licenses on display at the cage. Casinos in Las Vegas have distributor and manufacturer licenses, in addition to their operator licenses. They still have to report the change to the state. In the late 1990s, regulators got more comfortable with storing game program data on other forms of non-volatile memory (e.g., compact disc). Changing long-term paybacks by changing a physical component in the machine is the most secure way of making the change. Many years ago, some slot technicians cheated their casinos by using a configuration menu on a dollar machine to change the denomination to pennies. A confederate would then insert a dollar bill, get 100 credits, and cash out 100 dollar tokens — it was many years ago. As a result, regulators at the time required denomination changes to require chip changes. In the 2000s, with the expansion of server-based gaming in Native American casinos and enhanced communications between gaming machines and servers, gaming commissions worked on regulations to allow game program data to be sent from a central server down to the machines, eliminating the need to visit each machine and change some component in it. Downloadable games do give slot managers more flexibility, but the managers still have to acquire the different payback programs from the slot manufacturers. And then those pesky regulators come into play. No jurisdiction will allow a casino to make frequent (e.g., day/night, weekday/weekend, holiday) changes to the long-term paybacks on its machines. In a sense, slot manufacturers are involved in long-term payback changes by law. The reel layouts for each long-term payback available for a machine are their intellectual property. I am going to Las Vegas in August. What are the best slot machines to play? Where is the best place to play? This is like the question of whether one should pay off a mortgage. There’s no one answer and what’s right for one person may not be right for another. The best slot machines to play are the ones you have the most fun playing. That said, be aware that the Wide Area Progressive slots like Megabucks have lower long-term paybacks than other machines. The best place to play is the casino you like playing in best. Locals casinos in Las Vegas usually have better-paying slots than strip casinos, but if you like hopping from one casino to another, shopping at the malls attached to the casinos, eating at restaurants associated with famous chefs and watching a volcano erupt, then you’ll be happier staying on the strip.

Apple Starts Reinstalling Gambling Apps on Its Swedish Store

Apple Starts Reinstalling Gambling Apps on Its Swedish Store
Apple Starts Reinstalling Gambling Apps on Its Swedish Store Several gambling apps have been already reinstalled in Apple’s Swedish App Store. Shortly after Apple had to remove all gambling apps from its Swedish App Store, the company has started reinstalling them back. In February, 2015, the Swedish Gambling Authority (Lotteriinspektionen) reportedly made a legal complaint claiming that the gambling apps featured on Apple’s App Store for Sweden failed to comply with certain terms and conditions which makes them illegal. After the official complaint was made approximately 40 mobile casino apps including the ones by Unibet, Bet365, Betsson, Betfair and William Hill have been removed from the Swedish App Store. Nevertheless, in April the Authority has withdrawn its complaint and PokerStars and Unibet apps have been already reinstalled. According to some sources, the gaming regulator had received a letter in which was stated that online gambling operators had failed to meet particular terms when it comes to offering gaming services and therefore their mobile applications should be considered illegal. The main problem was that unlicensed operators were supposedly targeting players located in Sweden. Nevertheless, after taking everything into account, the Swedish Gaming Authority decided to allow Apple to reinstall the mobile casino apps. Swedish Association of Online Gambling Operators Happy with the Decision The Swedish Association of Online Gambling Operators (Branschföreningen för Onlinespel) was one of the first groups to express their concerns and critic the move made by the Swedish Gambling Authority.However, the latest events made the group happy with the regulator’s decision. The General Secretary of the Association, Gustaf Hoffstedt, said that there are no laws that prohibit foreign gambling operators that hold EU licences to make their mobile casino apps available on the Internet. Additionally, he pointed out that the current EU law forbids Sweden to discriminate gambling companies based in any of the member states of the Union. Hoffstedt didn’t fail to remind that the Swedish Gambling Authority to forget using tricks like this and focus all of its attention on making an optimised and up to date licensing system that would meet the expectations of the Swedish government. He finished by highlighting the importance of having all interested parties working together and coming up with the best possible solution. Apple Wasn’t Requested to Remove the Gambling Apps Even though the situation was resolved positively for Apple, the Swedish Gambling Authority made some comments claiming that it never made formal complaints against the technology giant Apple or its offer in the Swedish App Store. According to the regulating body, the company based in the United States had decided to make the move of removing the gambling apps without being asked to do so by the Authority. If that is true, turns out that Apple was trying to avoid having any issues with the Swedish Gambling Authority once the concerns about offering unlicensed gaming products to Swedish citizen have arisen. Nevertheless, it is easy to understand Apple’s reaction since the Lotterriinspektionen throughout 2014 made several public statements that it won’t tolerate any advertising channels for unregulated gaming operators that target Swedes. Additionally, the Authority also threatened to fine those who help these operators reach Swedish gamblers.
