Gaming equipment — Progressive Gaming Devices — requirements, First Edition.; (30 page(s), in English)
This Draft Uganda Standard is to cover the requirements for all Progressive Gaming Devices.
The purpose of this technical standard is as follows: a) To eliminate subjective criteria in analyzing and certifying Progressive Gaming Devices.
b) To only test those criteria which impact the credibility and integrity of gaming from both the Revenue Collection and game play point of view. c) To create a standard that will ensure that Progressive Gaming Devices are fair, secure, and able to be audited and operated correctly.
d) To distinguish between local public policy and laboratory criteria.
e) To recognize that non-gaming testing (such as Electrical Testing) should not be incorporated into this standard but left to appropriate test laboratories that specialize in that type of testing. Except where specifically identified in the standard, testing is not directed at health or safety matters. These matters are the responsibility of the manufacturer, purchaser, and operator of the equipment.
f) To construct a standard that can be easily changed or modified to allow for new technology.
g) To construct a standard that does not specify any particular technology, method or algorithm. The intent is to allow a wide range of methods to be used to conform to the standards, while at the same time, to encourage new methods to be developed.
