BISMARCK, N.D., Aug. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Grover Gaming, Inc. announced today that its Electronic Pull-Tab devices have been approved for use by the Gaming Division of the North Dakota Attorney General's Office.
According to Garrett Blackwelder, President of Grover Gaming, "We are very pleased that we're officially open for business in North Dakota. They have a very strong Charitable Gaming industry and we are glad to partner with the Charities in North Dakota to bring an exciting new product to that market."
The North Dakota legislature approved the use of electronic pull-tabs last year and the Attorney General's Office, along with the State Gaming Commission, promulgated rules and regulations which became effective July 1 of this year.
The Gaming Division of the Attorney General's Office has set strenuous standards which must be met before a manufacturer can offer the devices for use in North Dakota. All the systems and devices must be examined by an independent gaming lab and certified to be compliant with those standards. Additionally, a manufacturer must post a $2,000,000 performance bond before any operation in the State.
"Obviously, we are excited about being the first manufacturer approved to deploy electronic pull-tab devices in this market," said Kevin Morse, Director of Market Development for Grover Gaming. "We will be bringing the entertaining gaming experiences that we're known for in our other charitable gaming markets and, along with our local North Dakota Distributor, Next Generation Gaming, will be providing the very best in customer service and support."
Rick Stenseth, Gaming Manager for Team Makers Club and the Fargo Moorhead Community Theatre believes electronic pull-tabs will be an excellent addition to their fund-raising efforts. "I really think that these devices are going to be a great tool for charities in North Dakota," said Stenseth. "We are particularly pleased that Grover Gaming has been approved for use so quickly because we are anxious to get E-tabs to the players."
