GICB Launches Standards to Cover Electronic Table Games

Electronic Table GamesThe Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau, the regulator of Macau, has recently released a set of technical standards to cover the dealer operated ETGs (Electronic Table Games). It is the first time that any measures are going to be implemented for such games that have the involvement of live dealers. The main reason for applying these gaming standards is to make sure that the games are random and fair with the highest level of security thereby allowing easy access to future auditing.

The dealer operated electronic table games make use of a live dealer to fulfil the primary mechanism of the casino game; whether to spin roulette or deal in cards; while using electronics for placing bets and bets placement.

According to the analysts, the presence of the live dealer will make the casino games all the more trustworthy for the Asian players because of its overall fairness and randomness.

Since the games are operated electronically, people will be able to place bets quickly which in turn can help the operators receive a large number of bets.


Also, the electronic table games are meant for a more extensive player pool. Live videos are available with bettors at the terminals; there is a vast number of players who can access the table comfortably. The access to maximum capacity at the table is the most exciting part. Earlier in January 2013, a maximum limit was set by Macau for the live dealer table games with nine players per table. The electronic table games will now provide seating to 50-60 people per table as compared to earlier. Hence, a large number of people can participate in the game without any hassles.

The new technical standards from the gaming authority will require the dealer operated electronic table games to acquire Macau accredited testing laboratory to ensure it is legitimate. Apart from that, same probabilities should be applied for regular live games and ETGs. Messages at the terminal should be displayed in both Chinese as well as English. Also, the ETG terminals should provide access to multiple games to individual players. The manufacturers of electronic table games like Paradise Entertainment are elated that the gaming regulator of Macau has now come up with the latest technical standards.

Jay Chun who is the Chairman of Paradise Entertainment has made the following statement:

We are delighted to see the release of the standards, setting out objective standards and requirements for the dealer-operated ETG machines, which have been under rapid growth in recent years and are playing an important role in the development of the gaming industry.
