Hello all. I've read that under Nevada law an electronic game with representations of cards or dice must be based on fair odds, so it should have fair odds with games dealt at a table.

My question is there something similar governing video Blackjack at casinos run by tribal authorities? I have been doing some research online, as well as checking the regulatory agency that such casinos must be in compliance with, but I am not seeing an answer.

Thanks much for any assistance. :)

No, but there may be some Nevada regulation that gives you assurance that if you see an IGT, WMS, or similar manufacturer in a tribal casino that it will behave the same way it does in Nevada. I thought there was something that required suppliers who sell into Nevada to only make class III machines, in order to prevent situations where identical looking class II counterparts are accidentally installed in Nevada.

I may just be making this up though. Does anyone know if there's some regulation that assures us that a WMS video poker machine in Roy's tribal casino in West Bum operates according to standard VP probability?

I would imagine its not that difficult to finds out if a casino has Class lll or Class ll machines. Isn't this easily available on the internet?

That's referring to all tribal casinos in the US functioning in a similar manner to that in Nevada, right? Not NV tribal casino machines functioning the same as non-tribal NV.

Incidentally, anybody know who the manufacturer for the unit posted in the corner here? http://www.wbur.org/news/2015/06/15/plainridge-slots-parlor-opening I've given it a once-over as best I could without drawing attention and never saw a brand marker or copyright posted anywhere on the machine or in the instructions.
