The Nevada Gaming Commission has solicited open comments regarding the role and responsibilities the NGC should have in administering the future interstate online poker agreements.

The authorization to negotiate deals that offer Nevada’s online poker services to other states was rushed through by state politicians last month, but the details of such agreements remain to be defined and will likely fall to the NGC to put into place.

As a result, the NGC is seeking additional input from businesses likely to be part of the process as well as the general public. The call for comments was recently posted on the NGC’s public website by the NGC’s executive secretary, Sally P. Elloyan, asking respondents to consider five important areas regarding Nevada’s future interstate poker offerings.

The questions as posted by Elloyan are as follows:

  1. What topics should the Board and Commission consider putting in regulation relating to an interstate agreement on interactive gaming?
  2. Should revenue sharing between signatory states to a compact be based on the location of where the wager originated? Why or why not? Please be specific and cite any relevant legal support.
  3. Should revenue sharing between signatory states to a compact be based on the location of the licensed interactive host? Why or why not? Please be specific and cite any relevant legal support.
  4. Should the regulatory body of the signatory state where the wager originated have control over player disputes related to said players? Why or why not? Please be specific and cite any relevant legal support.
  5. Please provide any other information not requested above that is relevant to regulations for interstate agreements on interactive gaming.

Respondents may mail, fax, or e-mail their comments to Elloyan by April 12, 2013. Reply comments should be filed on or before April 19, 2013.
