The Nevada Gaming Commission (NGC) has modified its regulations to require Silver State to establish and maintain a self-exclusion list for internet gaming sites.
Nevada Gaming Commission Establishing Self-Exclusion List for iGaming Sites
The Nevada Gaming Commission (NGC) has just taken steps to create a self-exclusion list for online casino sites within the state. The NGC accepted a change to Regulation 5A, a part of Nevada’s gaming regulations, making it easier for the establishment of the self-exclusion list.
In other words, the NGC has approved changes to the language in Regulation 5A, its guidance for online gambling, that would also require the Nevada Gaming Control Board (NGCB) to create and sustain a list where players can opt-out of their gambling activity, should they feel they’re starting to develop a habit.
NGCB and NGC Discuss Expanding Nevada’s Online Gaming Activity
Being updated daily, the list would only apply to gambling across iGaming sites within the state. The NGCB and the NGC have been discussing the possibility of expanding Nevada’s online gaming activity, as well as reducing the in-person registration requirement for online poker and sports gambling.
If the gaming regulators decide to move forward with the development of iGaming market, Nevada would join other states that currently offer slots and table games.
Should the gaming regulators decide to move forward with the development of an iGaming market, Nevada will be joining other US states that currently offer legal online slots, table games and other gambling alternatives. The list of these states includes Delaware, Michigan, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and West Virginia, with Connecticut soon to be added to that selection.
Several other states are also considering implementing similar measures.
