A Request for Comment from all licensees and interested parties has been filed by the Nevada Gaming Commission about “regulations concerning interstate agreements for interactive gaming.”
Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval signed Assembly Bill 114 into law last month. The bill allows Nevada — one of three states to previously pass online gambling legislation — to enter into interstate gambling compacts with other states.
But before that happens a five-member commission will draft regulations and according to the Notice of Request for Comments, the commission hopes to ascertain public opinion on the following questions:
- 1. What topics should the board and commission consider putting in regulation relating to an interstate agreement on interactive gaming?
- 2. Should revenue sharing between signatory states to a compact be based on the location of where the wager originated? Why or why not? Please be specific and cite any relevant legal support.
- 3. Should revenue sharing between signatory states to a compact be based on the location of the licensed interactive host? Why or why not? Please be specific and cite any relevant legal support.
- 4. Should the regulatory body of the signatory state where the wager originated have control over player disputes related to said players? Why or why not? Please be specific and cite any relevant legal support.
- 5. Please provide any other information not requested above that is relevant to regulations for interstate agreements on interactive gaming. Regulatory language will be drafted after comments are submitted and will be considered at a regulatory workshop yet to be scheduled.
The Commission’s executive secretary will accept comments until April 12, 2013. Comments will be posted online. Replies to the posted comments will be accepted until April 19, 2013.
