New Technical Standards for Macau Electronic Gaming Tables

It’s the first week of January and Macau is already on the ball with new standards for casinos. Over 40 land-based casinos in the city will have to follow technical standards for electronic gaming tables on their casino floors. The new standards require ‘significant human interaction’ to be used in casinos. There won’t be any limits on how many tables, but the standards are taking live dealer games to a new level.

Other standards for these electronic gaming tables include having each table approved by a ‘Macau-accredited testing laboratory.’ This will, in effect, ensure that all gaming tables are fair and provide random outcomes while being regulated properly. These gaming tables are not new to casinos, but regulations differ from country to country. Macau’s new rules may just change the game for land-based casinos in Canada.

Electronic Gaming Tables at Casinos

Gaming tables will usually feature a live dealer and players at a live casino. These electronic gaming tables feature games such as Blackjack and Roulette. When one brings in an electronic gaming computer, the chance of error for players is slightly reduced. However, the standards set in place in Macau require that a live dealer is present for the games.

If a game is operated by a computer, like Roulette, the wheel is spun by the machine. This helps to avoid players depending on dealer habits to win. For games like Poker and Blackjack, it also makes card counting difficult. For these reasons, the tables will help players feel like their games are fair, and may result in better wins.
