Current law, however, prohibits blackjack and other such table games.
No problem, say the politicians. "All we need to do is approve electronic games."
Although such electronic games are seen at many Nevada casinos, they fail to compete with the live-action table games. But, that probably won’t be the problem in New York since the electronic games will be the only ones available to blackjack fans.
The idea for electronic games is relatively new in New York. However, it has caught a fast track among lawmakers. It even has received the blessing of Gov. David Paterson’s office.
Reports indicate that Paterson is expected to include revenue from the electronic games in his new budget.
Use of electronic games could be a big winner for games’ producer Shuffle Master Inc.
