Three Reforms to Streamline Shipping of Gaming Machines
The reform of three shipping regulations could spark improvements in efficiency and speed to-market for gaming machines without jeopardizing oversight and integrity
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 date from decades in the past, many of which have proven unnecessary.
This white paper outlines three specific shipping reforms that may spark the greatest improvement in efficiency and speed to-market for gaming machines, and examines the benefits and consequences of reform in each of these areas.
