Casino-goers can expect fair gaming at Singapore's two integrated resorts - Marina Bay Sands and Resorts World Sentosa as all electronic gaming machines at both casinos meet the technical standards required by the Casino Regulatory of Singapore (CRA).

According to laboratories certified by Singapore Accreditation Council (SAC) and its Mutual Recognition Arrangement (MRA) partners, the machines such as slots, electronic table games and progressives are deemed to operate in a fair, secure, reliable and auditable manner.

Mr. Png Cheong Boon, Chief Executive of SPRING Singapore said the laboratories are certified under the SAC's Accreditation Scheme for Gaming Laboratories.

The scheme was introduced last year to sanction laboratories for their technical competency in testing the hardware and software of electronic gaming machines.

In the opening address at the Accreditation & Conformance (AC) 2010 held on Tuesday, 29 June, Mr. Renny Yeo, Chairman of Singapore Accreditation Council said more laboratories are expected to to set up their base in Singapore and leverage on the SAC's accreditation and MRA network to serve the growing market in the region.

Singapore ideal for testing

Mr David Kinsman, CEO of Weike Gaming Technology, a local manufacturer of casino gaming machines, electronic gaming tables, gaming machine monitoring and promotional network systems, said, "Being able to do the testing in Singapore will help us cut cost, save time and gain faster access to the international gaming machine market.

"The stringent requirements demanded by these accredited laboratories also ensure that our machines are of world-class standards."
