Problem Gambling

The Gaming Control Act and Board rules require that gaming operator licensees maintain a compulsive gambling plan. Racetrack gaming operator licensees are required to contribute one quarter of one percent of net slot revenues toward the prevention, education, and treatment of compulsive gambling. The Tribal-State Gaming Compacts impose the same requirement on tribal gaming operators.
