Electronic Card Shufflers and Electronic Card Shoes

Electronic card shufflers and electronic card shoes deployed in casinos in Singapore must be secure, reliable and auditable, so as to ensure honest gaming. The Singapore Technical Standards for Electronic Card Shufflers and Electronic Card Shoes describes key technical standards that serve to achieve this.
 
The Singapore Technical Standards for Electronic Shufflers Version 1.0 and Version 1.1 were released on 16 September 2009 and 23 June 2010 respectively, while the Singapore Notice on Card Shoes (which applies to both electronic card shoes and non-electronic card shoes*) was issued on 14 October 2009. Taking into consideration the product trend towards hybrid electronic card shoes and shufflers, the Casino Regulatory Authority of Singapore (the “Authority") has updated and amalgamated the existing technical standards for electronic card shufflers and electronic card shoes intended for use in the Singapore casinos into one set of technical standards. The Singapore Technical Standards for Electronic Card Shufflers and Electronic Card Shoes Version 2.0 and Version 3.0 were released on 1 February 2013 and 24 April 2015 respectively. The Casino Regulatory Authority of Singapore (the “Authority”) has published a revised version of the Singapore Technical Standards For Electronic Card Shufflers and Electronic Card Shoes, Version 3.1, on 2 March 2017 (the “Publication Date”).  All industry players must comply with the Singapore Technical Standards for Electronic Card Shufflers and Electronic Card Shoes Version 3.1 with effect from 3 March 2017 (the “Effective Date”).
 
The Singapore Technical Standards for Electronic Card Shufflers and Electronic Card Shoes is a collective result of active participation of industry stakeholders via the Authority’s industry consultation process. Valuable input has been provided by our various regulatory counterparts. We thank all our regulatory counterparts and industry stakeholders for their valuable input and feedback.

*Please continue to refer to the Notice on Non-Electronic Card Shoes for the requirements relating to non-electronic card shoes.
