EZPlay is an Open Standards approach to RFID that minimises the the time and cost to develop, test, and implement custom made cards and card reader/writers. EZPlay takes advantage of proven, standardized technology currently in use in the banking and retail sector around the world. Costs would be lower due to standardization and the widespread availability of competitively-priced equipment and services.

Each player would have a unique account number and PIN code (as opposed to the less secure user name/password) that would be recognized by each licensee and the closed Financial entity. Players would be required to obtain a secure, official, State issued computer-readable ID registration card that is capable of contactless communication (NFC) to a computer, and one that contains a unique, non alterable ID number, user-defined personal PIN code, and is capable of storing by writing and reading (contactless) limited personal ID information to/from the card. This card would have security features that make it be non-usable without the use of the unalterable, PIN code (if lost or stolen), as well as being unable to be copied or cloned, even if the counterfeiter is in possession of the card. Such a card (e.g., using RFID technology) has existed for over 25 years and is commercially available. Examples of RFID technology are abundant (toll road EZ Pass, Chase Bank touch & go credit card, and US Passport ID card)
