Canada is having its own problems with gambling. The country is taking its provinces one by one and each one is making their own rulings about whether or not slots should be allowed, and if so, how many. Chances Gaming Entertainment is a gambling facility located in British Columbia and it is the latest location to ask for legal approval to increase the number of slots it currently has on its floor. The business was making the argument that it needed the approval to increase the number of slots they can have as they see fit. This was an aggressive move by casino operators to use slots gaming to bring in as much money as possible. It would take some doing to change to that level of operations and Canada is not yet at the point where it can allow open-ended gaming for every casino that asks. Chances Gaming officials were hoping that due to their past performance legislators would ok their request and let them write the rules. It is their slots parlor that is the most popular and they have a huge senior citizen following. The seniors have days when they come and specials created just for them to take advantage of the lower-wager requiring games.
Canadian officials didn’t go along with their petition though. They limited the number of new slots they can bring into their casino to two-hundred. This is still a huge number and should allow them to do a lot of promotion and advertising for the change. They denied the idea of giving Chances Gaming or any other location for that matter, the ability to increase the number of slots games they install at free will. Part of the problem was they would have a hard time monitoring the machines to keep track of their own cuts of the games’ revenues. It would be difficult to monitor and make sure that casinos were giving them the right records without a consistent investigation of every location offering slots. This means that Chances Gaming is going to get the increase their slots, but every time they want to they are going to have to through the proper channels and get the approval needed.
