Server-Based Gaming

With the introduction of server-based gaming technology possible to the Ontario marketplace, the AGCO has developed new server-based technical standards specific to this technology. These technical standards govern the use of a "server-assisted slot system" and a "server-based slot system," which are defined as follows:

  • "Server-assisted slot system" is a system comprised of one or more server-assisted slot machines connected to a slot machine server and associated equipment, all approved by the Registrar, for the purpose of downloading approved slot machine games, game configurations and other related software from slot machine server to server-assisted slot machines.  In a server-assisted slot system, the game outcome is determined by the server-assisted slot machine.  The server-assisted slot machines can operate independently of the slot machine server after the game software and/or configuration are downloaded to the slot machine.
  • "Server-based slot system" is a system comprised of one or more server-based slot machines connected to a slot machine server, all approved by the Registrar, for the purpose of providing access to approved slot machine games and other related software from the slot machine server to the server-based slot machine.  In a server-based slot system, the game outcome is determined by the server.  The server-based slot machines cannot operate independently of the slot machine server.
