The Nevada Gaming Control Board announced their decision this week that the State Gaming Control Board Technology Division will no longer be responsible for the pre-approval testing of online casino games, gaming devices, associated equipment, cashless wagering systems, mobile gaming systems, and interactive gaming systems.

In a statement from the Nevada Gaming Control Board, it was made clear that beginning on July 1st, 2012, the pre-approval testing service of games used at top online casinos is to be completed by independent testing laboratories that have met the registration requirements of the State Gaming Control Board.

Products that are still up for review in the Gaming Control Board Technology Division Lab will be completed by the end of June 2012.

The Nevada Gaming Commission and State Gaming Control Board will continue to the main approving body for air gambling games, gaming devices, associated equipment, cashless wagering systems, mobile gaming systems, and interactive gaming systems operated within the state.

The statement from the Board read, “Once an independent testing laboratory has been registered, manufacturers may begin utilizing their service of pre-approval testing and certification for products to be submitted to the Nevada Gaming Control Board for approval.”

It continued, “Manufacturers will be able to use the independent testing laboratory of their choosing and will not be restricted to the use of a single independent testing laboratory.”

Nevada is currently reviewing its online casino games legislation and many of the best online casino brands are hoping to receive licenses in the state.
