This week the University of Nevada, Las Vegas announced the formation of the International Center for Gaming Regulation on its campus, which will aid different regions throughout the globe as they regulate their gaming industries.
The school will be headed up by Andre Wilsenach, who previously served as the director of the Alderney Gaming Commission and has experience working with the politics, rules, and operational side of the business. The center's goal is to is to become the primary source for regulatory information and research. To achieve that goal, the center will offer test results, data, and a comprehensive list of regulations throughout the globe.
The state of Nevada will contribute directly to the center, putting up $500,000 annually toward the research institute. Private sponsors such as casinos and trade bodies will also contribute, helping to keep the lights on for years to come.
Commenting on the center's founding Wilensach said, "I think this is a huge opportunity to help regulators learn from each other. I see the role of the center as developing the best practices that can be used in different gaming jurisdictions. I think that's something that would be valuable to regulators."
