Three Reforms to Streamline Shipping of Gaming Machines

In recent years, gaming regulators have begun to address regulatory bottlenecks in the shipping of gaming machines that drive up costs and slow the delivery of state-of-the-art technology to casino floors. By modernizing shipping regulations, jurisdictions can create greater efficiencies for suppliers, casino operators, and their own regulatory efforts.

Nonetheless, many of the more than three hundred U.S. gaming jurisdictions — forty states plus tribal entities — still enforce shipping restrictions that are decades old, many of which have proven unnecessary.

This white paper outlines three specific shipping reforms that would spark great improvement in efficiency and speed to-market for gaming machines, and examines the benefits and consequences of reform in each of these areas.

Recommendations for Streamlining Processes While Maintaining Integrity

This paper makes a wide range of recommendations for streamlining gaming regulations while maintaining the integrity of the industry and its regulatory system.

It does not attempt to produce an “exhaustive” list of improvements but instead focuses on recommendations that would improve the licensing process, simplify the gaming licensee’s ability to gain access to financing, reform regulation of gaming machines and modify or eliminate unnecessary red tape and reporting requirements. The paper identifies reforms that would free regulators and licensees from processes that no longer serve their initial goals, analyzing each regulatory problem and identifying an effective solution.
