AN  ACT  to amend the penal law, in relation to amending the definitions
  for gambling offenses

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1. Subdivisions 7-a and 8 of section 225.00 of the penal law,
subdivision 7-a as added and subdivision 8 as amended by chapter 632  of
the laws of 1987, are amended to read as follows:
  7-a.  A  "coin operated gambling device" means a gambling device which
operates as a result of the insertion of something of  value.  A  device
designed,  constructed  or readily adaptable or convertible for such use
is a coin operated gambling device notwithstanding the fact that it  may
require  adjustment, manipulation or repair in order to operate as such.
A MACHINE WHICH AWARDS FREE OR EXTENDED PLAY IS NOT  A  GAMBLING  DEVICE
MERELY  BECAUSE  SUCH  FREE OR EXTENDED PLAY MAY CONSTITUTE SOMETHING OF
VALUE PROVIDED THAT THE OUTCOME DEPENDS UPON THE SKILL OF THE PLAYER AND
NOT IN A MATERIAL DEGREE UPON AN ELEMENT OF CHANCE.
  8. "Slot machine" means a gambling device which, as a  result  of  the
insertion  of  a coin or other object, operates, either completely auto-
matically or with the aid of some physical act by the  player,  in  such
manner  that,  depending upon elements of chance, it may eject something
of value. A device so constructed, or readily adaptable  or  convertible
to  such  use,  is  no  less a slot machine because it is not in working
order or because some  mechanical  act  of  manipulation  or  repair  is
required to accomplish its adaptation, conversion or workability. Nor is
it  any  less a slot machine because, apart from its use or adaptability
