QCOM 3 for electronic gaming machines

In Queensland, all electronic gaming machines in clubs and hotels must be connected to an electronic monitoring system. The protocol electronic gaming machines use to make that connection is called the QCOM protocol.

Over 43,000 electronic gaming machines in Queensland currently run the QCOM protocol. Gaming providers in the Northern Territory, Tasmania, Victoria and New Zealand have also adopted it.

QCOM 3 is an upgrade of the current protocol, QCOM v1.6, and is designed to take advantage of the latest technology and security standards.

It is available to licenced monitoring operators, manufacturers and other game developers.
