Nevada’s Gaming Control heads visit Macau

Nevada’s three Gaming Control Board members traveled to Macau last week in an effort to re-kindle the relationship with their regulatory counterparts, the Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau (DICJ), the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported. Control Board Chairman A.G. Burnett characterized the trip as a “fact-finding” mission. DICJ director, Manuel Neves admitted to the local broadcaster TDM that the two bodies have not always seen eye to eye, but expects things to improve. As Macau gains momentum, Nevada is losing its bragging rights and has few bargaining chips to get its compliance driven message across. The Nevada Gaming Control Board also extended an invitation for DICJ to reciprocate the visit.
