What exactly is an amusement machine certificate in Florida?

In Florida, an amusement machine certificate is required for devices that offer games of skill, where players can win prizes but not cash. These machines are typically found in places like arcades. The certificate ensures that the machine is being used for amusement purposes only and not for gambling.

I've been approached by vendors offering skill machines that payout cash, claiming they're legal with an amusement machine certificate. Is this true?

No, this is a common misconception. In Florida, while amusement machine certificates allow for skill-based games, they strictly prohibit machines that payout in cash. Machines that do so can be considered illegal gambling devices. Always ensure you're fully aware of Florida's regulations and the specifics of any certificate or license when considering new machines or software for your establishment.

How can I ensure the machines I have or am considering are fully compliant with Florida laws?

It's crucial to consult with knowledgeable vendors, like us at Manatee Bingo, who prioritize compliance and are familiar with Florida's specific regulations. Additionally, periodic reviews of the Florida Statutes and consulting with legal experts in gaming law can provide clarity and peace of mind.

What sets your games apart from those designed for mere amusement?

Our games are specifically crafted to align with the charitable bingo statutes in Florida. While they provide an engaging experience for players, they are not just for amusement. They're a form of allowed gambling under these statutes, ensuring that they are both fun and compliant.

How do you ensure that your system remains compliant with regulations?

Compliance is of utmost importance to us. To ensure our system's alignment with regulations, we're engaged with third-party testing laboratories. They rigorously test and verify that our system meets all the necessary criteria laid out by the charitable bingo statutes.
