This group is called together by the MSG as and when there are development tasks required to be carried out.
Those manufacturers, games and system developers, and occasionally operators who have an interest or a stake in the technical development of aspects of gaming machines attend these forums.
The detail of the meetings tend to be highly technical which determines who attends from member organisations.
Work to date has been primarily around the development of guidelines for the prevention of PC (server) fraud and the delivery of the Cashless and Ticketing Protocols.
However, the evolving development road map will widen the scope and remit of this group into other technical areas such as ' Anti-money laundering' measures and the secure provision and controlling of promotional and bonusing tools.
