Nevada Gaming Control Board Approves Amendments Regarding Cashless Gaming



The Nevada Gaming Control Board has approved the amendments that will allow cashless gaming in all casinos.

The proposal had been discussed and postponed for a long time, but hygiene concerns due to the Covid-19 pandemic have increased the urgency for the regulation to finally be adopted.

Before the amendment, casino players could only transfer money from a financial institution to a system that prints a voucher that is deposited into a game.

The new regulations will allow direct transfers of money to a game without requiring a voucher. It is expected that the system will drive the use of mobile wallets in casinos as seen in other industries. Credit card transactions remain prohibited.

Casinos will be required to use a specific cashless wagering system approved by the Nevada Gaming Commission. All manufacturers of equipment used to transfer money to a game need to be licensed.
