§ 601a.2. Table games Rules Submissions.

 (a)  Prior to offering any table game authorized under this subpart, which provides a certificate holder with options for the conduct of the table game, the certificate holder shall submit and obtain approval of a Rules Submission which specifies which options the certificate holder will use in the conduct of the table game.

 (b)  The initial Rules Submission for any table game and any amendment to the Rules Submission shall be submitted electronically to the Bureau of Gaming Operations using the Internal Controls & Table Games Submission Form on the Board’s web site at www.pgcb.pa.gov.

 (c)  A certificate holder may implement the provisions in a Rules Submission upon receipt of written notice of approval from the Board’s Executive Director or on the 15th calendar day following the filing of the Rules Submission unless the certificate holder receives written notice under subsection (d) tolling the Rules Submission or written notice of disapproval from the Board’s Executive Director.

 (d)  If during the 15-day review period in subsection (c), the Bureau of Gaming Operations determines that a provision in the Rules Submission is inconsistent with the regulations for the conduct of that table game, the Bureau of Gaming Operations, by written notice to the certificate holder, will:

   (1)  Specify the nature of the inconsistency and, when possible, an acceptable alternative procedure.

   (2)  Direct that the 15 calendar day review period in subsection (c) be tolled and that the Rules Submission not be implemented until approved under subsection (e).

 (e)  When a Rules Submission has been tolled under subsection (d), the certificate holder may submit a revised Rules Submission within 15 days of receipt of the written notice from the Bureau of Gaming Operations. The certificate holder may implement the revised Rules Submission upon receipt of written notice of approval from the Board’s Executive Director or on the 15th calendar day following the filing of the revised Rule Submission unless the certificate holder receives written notice under subsection (d) tolling the revised Rules Submission or written notice of disapproval from the Board’s Executive Director.

 (f)  The current version of each Rules Submission of a certificate holder shall be maintained and made available in electronic form through secure computer access to the internal audit and surveillance departments of the certificate holder and the Board’s casino compliance representatives and other Board employees.
