New Jersey issues skill game rules

The Gambling regulators have issued rules that implement skill based games in state’s 8 Atlantic City casinos. The rules were introduced by the state Division of Gaming enforcement.

This included informing the players of the outcome of their wager. Players would need to be informed that these skill based games required mental and physical skills and were not based on chance outcomes.

Apart from these rules, casinos cannot vary the level of skills required according to the level of skills of the player.Other rules included, a minimum payout at a certain percentage of all bets collected.

The division Director David Rebuck said “This is another important step towards implementing skill-based gaming in the Atlantic City gaming market, Although the Division has had the authority to authorise these games for some time and announced in October 2014 an initiative for manufacturers to bring their skill-based games to New Jersey, the industry requested specific regulations to guide their efforts to create innovative skill-based products.”

The introduction of skill-based games is said to attract the next generation of younger gamblers, who are not interested in slot machines or table games. The millennials are also not interested in actually visiting a casino. Game developers are looking at real money skill games in the form of arcade games, video console and tablet games. Developers believe that these games will bring more money to casinos.

The regulations in New jersey, state that developers need only comply with one set of regulations to be acceptable.
