Nevada Regulators Urged To Reconsider Charitable Gambling Change

Problem gambling advocates are asking Nevada gaming officials to reconsider pending amendments to regulations governing who can participate in charitable games and lotteries.

The three-member board also approved several other amendments to Regulation 4A, which governs lotteries and games of chance that raise money for nonprofit organizations in the state, before sending the draft regulations to the Nevada Gaming Commission (NGC).

The NGC is expected to take up the amendments at its October 24 meeting.
