The Gaming Control Act authorizes the Board to complete the functions of investigating, licensing, regulating and penalizing casino operators, casino gaming employees, key employees, management companies and holding companies.
As the regulator, the Board has jurisdiction over all persons licensed by the State to conduct casino gaming.
To fulfill the mission and the responsibilities of the Board, the Executive Director oversees five divisions that provide critical functions to ensure the integrity of casino gaming; licensing, audit, enforcement, information systems and operations. The office of the general counsel is responsible for providing advice and counsel in policies and procedures impacting the Board’s work in regulating casino gaming.
