Spectre Gaming Receives AWP Certification
Spectre Gaming, Inc. announced today that it has received certification, from an independent testing lab, that its AWP devices meet the widely used "Application of Skill" test. D. Bradly Olah, President of Spectre Gaming stated, "I congratulate our engineering team and our compliance staff in completing this critical certification for Spectre and its AWP games." Florida law allows amusement with prize (AWP) or redemption games to be distributed and played throughout the state as long as the games meet certain requirements and are operated in certain venues. A central requirement is that the game must be a game of skill, but the law does not define what skill is. A general guide used by many jurisdictions within Florida has been a test/process known generally as the New Jersey skill test.
To support the compliancy of Spectre's AWP games in Florida, Spectre voluntarily submitted its games to Nick Farley & Associates for evaluation and confirmation that its games had the requisite skill component. Based on the Farley laboratory's review, they recommended Spectre's game for certification for use in the state of New Jersey. Based on this opinion, Spectre further believes that its games will be deemed compliant in Florida.
Nick Farley & Associates is a full service regulatory compliance test laboratory and electronic gaming device consulting organization. Serving the regulated gaming, amusement and vending industries, its management has been testing electronic gaming equipment for all regulated jurisdictions since 1987. In addition to regulatory compliance testing, they also provide expert testimony regarding electronic gaming and amusement devices in numerous jurisdictions, including jurisdictions within Florida.
Mr. Olah went on to say, "With this recent certification, Spectre is now in position to deliver what it believes to be the only compliant system within the Florida marketplace. This market has historically been served by 'grey area' suppliers who have delivered games that are constantly being challenged by States Prosecutors and local Sheriffs who have no defined standard on the application of skill.
"With an estimated 20,000 devices already operating in Florida and a market that many believe will grow to over 100,000 games, Spectre is in a unique position to deliver the only compliant system ever placed in the Florida AWP marketplace. We look forward to delivering on our large backlog already established in the Florida marketplace."
