vance or machine which, upon insertion  of  a  coin,  token  or  similar
object  therein,  or  upon  payment  of any consideration whatsoever, is
available to play or operate, the play or operation of which, whether by
reason of the skill of the operator or application  of  the  element  of
chance,  or both, may deliver or entitle the individual playing or oper-
ating the machine to receive cash, or tokens to be exchanged  for  cash,
or  to  receive  merchandise  or  any  other thing of value, whether the
payoff is made automatically from the machine or in  any  other  manner,
except  that the cash equivalent value of any merchandise or other thing
of value shall not be included in determining the payout percentage of a
slot machine; PROVIDED, HOWEVER,  THAT  A  DEALER-CONTROLLED  ELECTRONIC
