Class II Gaming Machine and Software Shipments:

The San Manuel Tribal Gaming Commission (SMTGC) has established shipping and receiving protocols for Class II Gaming Systems. Pursuant to GCR016 section VII (g)(1) and 25 CFR 543.8(g)(1), All Class II Vendor, San Manuel Casino (Casino), and SMTCG shall implement communication procedures for Class II Gaming System shipments.

Shipments of Class II Gaming Software and equipment (computers, tablets, etc.) with preinstalled Class II Gaming Software shall require notice to the Casino and SMTGC. Class II Gaming Machine (Cabinet style Bingo Technological Aids, regardless of whether gaming software is installed) shipments shall require approval from the SMTGC prior to the shipment. The notification protocols are detailed below.

For any other Class II Gaming System equipment, components, computers without gaming software installed, or peripherals that have not been specifically mentioned in the previous paragraph, the SMTGC designates the Casino to be notified, receive, and verify the contents against the shipping notification. The Casino and Vendor shall work out their process for these items independently. SMTGC does not need to be notified when these items are being transported.

Class II Gaming Software, equipment (computers, tablets, player interfaces) with preinstalled Class II Gaming Software, and Class II Gaming Machines (Cabinet style Bingo Technological Aids) are considered regulatory controlled items that must adhere to the processes listed below for the San Manuel Reservation.

Eligibility

In order for the SMTGC to permit a shipment of Class II Gaming Systems regulatory controlled items to the San Manuel Reservation the following must be true:

  1. Only shipments from a Vendor licensed by the SMTGC shall be authorized.
  2. Prior to submission for approval to ship, the Class II Gaming System shall have an approved certification letter, from a SMTGC recognized test laboratory, demonstrating the Class II Gaming System passed testing on 25 CFR 547 Minimum Technical Standards for Gaming Equipment used with the Play of Class II Games.
  3. The Class II Gaming System has been classified as Class II by SMTGC as required in GCR008. On August 15, 2018, the SMTGC classified the VGT Ovation Bingo System as Class II.

Transporting Class II Gaming Machines (Cabinet style Bingo Technological Aids)

  1. All Class II Gaming Machines transported to and from the San Manuel Reservation must have an approved Shipment Notice authorizing the transport of the technological aids to the San Manuel Reservation.
  2. Class II Gaming Machines must be shipped in a secure manner within a locked compartment or container that are not accessible during transport. A numbered seal shall be applied to all access points and documented on the approved Shipment Notification ensuring that the Class II Gaming Machines have not been accessed during transport.
  3. A minimum of 14-days’ notice is required for any Class II Gaming Machine shipment requests. Requests for Shipment Notification (Attached) must include the following:

Transporting Class II Gaming Machines (Cabinet style Bingo Technological Aids)

All Class II Gaming Software and equipment with installed Class II Gaming Software shall be sent to the SMTGC. The Slot Department and Information Technology Department (IT) shall only receive Class II Gaming Software or equipment with installed Class II Gaming Software from SMTGC. In the event the Vendor mistakenly brings these items to the Slot or IT Department, the licensed employee shall direct the Vendor to deliver the product to SMTGC.

The Vendor shall send notifications to the SMTGC and Casino for all Class II Gaming Software or equipment with installed Class II Gaming Software transporting to or from the San Manuel Reservation. The SMTGC requires that the Vendor provide 24-hour notice for all Class II Gaming Software being transported to or from the San Manuel Reservation.

In circumstances where it is prudent and/or necessary to install Class II Gaming Software on equipment in advance, the manufacturers can seek written permission from the Gaming Compliance Director, who may stipulate conditions depending on the risks associated with the equipment. Request for waiver shall be sent seven (7) days in advance of the delivery date to provide adequate time for processing.

The notification shall include the following for each shipment:

  1. Name and address of the supplier;
  2. Description of shipment;
  3. List of equipment serial number(s);
  4. Method of shipment;
  5. Expected date of delivery to or leaving from the San Manuel Reservation;
