Casinos warned about full-scope inspections

Casino Regulatory Authority Chairman Richard Magnus expect casinos to “have by now sorted out any kinks in their operations”.

In a speech during the CRA Workplan Seminar last 17 June 2011, he said, “It is timely then that CRA commences a full scope inspection of the casinos this year. I thought I should mention this since senior officers of the two casinos are also with us today. Consider this as due notice having been given. This would be on top of our regular monitoring of the casinos.”

According to Magnus, the full scope inspection would include detailed on-site inspection of electronic gaming equipment deployed in the casinos as well as comprehensive checks on the casino operations. He said this inspection of the casinos is necessary in determining whether the casino licensees are complying with the Act, its regulations and licensing requirements, internal controls code, and approved game rules.

“CRA must keep its sight focused squarely on keeping the casinos free of criminal influence, ensure that gaming is conducted honestly, and protect the vulnerable from the potential of harm caused by the casinos. CRA’s mission has become more critical with the extraordinary growth of the industry,” said Magnus.
