Display and Demonstration of a Trade Show Device at a Trade Show
(1)Definition: For the purposes of this rule, “Trade show device” means a gaming device that would otherwise be a gray machine as described in ORS 167.117 (Definitions for ORS 167.108 to 167.164 and 464.270 to 464.530)(9) or a slot machine as described in 167.117 (Definitions for ORS 167.108 to 167.164 and 464.270 to 464.530)(20) except that the device is authorized for display or demonstration purposes at a trade show and the device is displayed and demonstrated by a manufacturer or manufacturer’s representative as an example of a model that is currently in production for sale or is scheduled to be in production for sale by the manufacturer.
(2)Trade Show Display: A trade show device approved for display and demonstration at a trade show:

(c)Must have the coin or bill acceptor removed or physically restricted from use so that wagering is not possible.

(3)Limitations: For purposes of this rule, a trade show cannot be held at a location or in a manner in which the Oregon State Police or the Lottery Security Section is encumbered from ensuring compliance with applicable law. For example, a trade show cannot be held in a mobile demonstration van or be conducted simultaneously at multiple locations.

(5)Approval: The Director may approve, in writing, an application to display, demonstrate, and transport a trade show device submitted under section (4) upon finding that each device identified in the application is a trade show device and that the applicant will use the trade show device solely for display and demonstration purposes at a trade show that is not open to the public and where minors under the age of 21 are prohibited from operating any trade show device.
(6)Approval to Accompany Machine: Upon approval by the Director, a copy of the Director’s approval to display, demonstrate, and transport a trade show device must accompany the device while in transit to or from the trade show and while the device is at the trade show.
(7)Transport: A trade show device scheduled to be displayed or demonstrated at a trade show must be transported as described in the approval to display, demonstrate, and transport the device.
