Pivotal amendments to regulation

The Nevada Gaming Commission’s meeting is expected to be a pivotal event in the gaming industry.

These amendments aim to incorporate hosting centre provisions authorized by the Nevada Legislature. The changes were authorized in Sections 9.1 and 9.3 of Senate Bill 14 from the 82nd Session of the Nevada Legislature in 20233. The proposed amendments to NGC Regulation 5.231 include adding a new subsection defining what portions of the premises of a registered hosting centee agents and members of the Nevada Gaming Control Board and Commission are to be granted access.

This is a significant step towards ensuring transparency and accountability in the operation of registered hosting centers4. Another amendment to NGC Regulation 6.110(2) will be considered, which proposes to amend the gross revenue computations for slot machines’ hopper loads.
