China has issued a regulation to eliminate gambling content from gaming machines and devices.

The Ministry of Culture and Tourism said the regulation will forbid gaming machines and devices from having gambling functions. Gambling devices that automatically decide results, such as slot machines, are also prohibited.

According to the document, electronic gambling devices set at entertainment and business operation venues should not be open to juveniles under the age of 18.

Those who seriously violate the regulation will be put on a blacklist for the cultural market. The regulation will take effect on January 1, 2020.
