The Georgia Lottery has released some important information on Preventing Theft of COAM Game Funds for all location owners with Class A and B gaming equipment. We are pleased to report this information to you to keep you informed about all of your games and what your master license holder should be doing to keep your games safes! Lucky Coin wants to make sure that all locations are made aware of the best practices for operating the games. Below is the information about preventing theft of COAM game funds:
The vandalism of machines or the theft of money from machines is an unfortunate situation, but it can happen. If your machines are vandalized or broken into and there is a theft of money, the business owner will be responsible for any lost money. In order to minimize the financial loss as a result of vandalism or theft, the GLC would like to remind Location License Holders of some strategies for reducing or minimizing theft from COAMs.
Reduce Trouble by Building Relationships – LLHs and their employees should be attentive to activity within their location and around the COAMs. Greet people and be mindful of activity around COAMs in an effort to identify any potential security risks. People are less likely to do bad things to people they feel a connection or have a rapport with.
Placing COAMs in Visible Area of the Business – If a machine often experiences damage or theft, the best course of action may be to move the machine(s) to a different location within the business. Place COAMs in an area of the business that can be easily observed by employees helps prevent damage, destruction, and theft.
Remove Cash Daily – Another suggestion would be to remove cash from COAMs daily and deposit the funds on a daily basis in their COAM designated bank account and maintain accurate accounting records.
Security Camera Installation – One of the best methods of vandalism and theft prevention may be the installation of a simple security camera in the area. If a particular section of your business is more susceptible to theft, consider better placement of the COAMs. A COAM may be more profitable in a different part of a business location. As a reminder, any movement of COAMs must be coordinated ahead of time between the MLH and Intralot. Location License Holders must contact their Master License Holder for the repair or replacement of COAMs as a result of vandalism or damage due to theft.
