A Slot route operator
is a company that owns and operates slot machines
in several locations. By providing this service, many small businesses are able to provide slot machines that they could not otherwise afford to operate.
As operators have grown, they have been able to offer linked machines to provide larger jackpots and affinity cards to reward frequent players.
Operators are generally licensed in the same manner as a casino. In Nevada, they are licensed and regulated by the Nevada Gaming Commission.
