Massachusetts the First US State to Test Pre-Commitment Technology

massachusetts-quarter-75x74Plainridge Park Casino in Massachusetts is going to be the first land based casino in the US to test the pre-commitment technology called Play My Way in slots. The technology allows slot players to set spending limits and is designed with the aim to reduce problem gambling. The Massachusetts Gaming Commission approved this technology and despite the mixed feeling of its effectiveness, they want to try and see whether it will work. Players, on the other hand, get casino reward cards before they play a slot with limits they set for themselves. After they spend 50% of the money an on-screen message will notify them. The same message will appear at the 75% mark and when the set limit is reached.
