International Gaming Institute

You are here


The home of the International Gaming Institute, the Stan Fulton Building, is located within two miles of the Las Vegas Strip on the UNLV campus. Thanks to a generous donation from Konami Gaming Inc., it boasts a state-of-the-art casino lab with the latest slots and table games technologies and a fully-functional casino surveillance room. These outstanding gaming education facilities are complemented by "smart" classrooms, executive boardrooms, a bistro, and conference facilities.

If you choose to study at our Las Vegas home you will also have an opportunity to experience all that this area has to offer. From the bright lights and buzz of the casinos, through world-class restaurants, shopping and shows, to the rugged desert landscapes of Red Rock Canyon, Las Vegas has it all. Custom programs can be tailored to include site visits to some of the world’s largest and most prestigious casino resorts where you can see classroom learning put into action.
