Thankyou for such a good read!

"...In a civil action brought by Borgata to recover Ivey’s “winnings,” a

federal district court held that the edge-sorting scheme violated the markedcard provisions of the state’s Casino Control Act.81 The court concluded

that asking a dealer “to turn a card a particular way so that the pattern on

the edge of the card will distinguish it from other cards” was no different

from marking cards with physical substances or crimps."

However, in the U.S. Third Circuit Court of Appeals, we trust.

Ivey will likely win the case against Borgata.

"Borgata takes some hits.

[Judge] Rendell seemed to have little sympathy for Borgata’s side, saying that “Borgata is the one who agreed” to the terms of play that directly led to riches for Ivey and Sun.

MS Gaming Control Act (Gaming Device Definition)

Hello to anyone who may see this. I am looking for some peoples interpretations of a definition of a gaming device that is listed on the MS Gaming Control Act. Below is a direct quote from the MS Gaming Control Act. Any information and interpretations are much appreciated.

(m) “Gaming device” means any mechanical, electromechanical or electronic contrivance, component or machine used in connection with gaming or any game which affects the result of a wager by determining win or loss. The term includes a system for processing information which can alter the normal criteria of random selection, which affects the operation of any game, or which determines the outcome of a game. The term does not include a system or device which affects a game solely by stopping its operation so that the outcome remains undetermined, and does not include any antique coin machine as defined in Section 27-27-12.

I am mainly interested in peoples' opinions on the 2nd part of the definition. The altering of normal criteria of random selection.

thanks guys.
