About this event

Let the experts at the UNLV International Center for Gaming Regulation empower your tribal jurisdiction with the information and tools to successfully launch sports betting.

This intensive program focuses on issues specifically related to sports betting in tribal jurisdictions. Because of the requirements of the federal Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA), the National Indian Gaming Commission (NIGC), and, in many areas, pre-existing tribal-state compacts, tribal jurisdictions face important additional legal, regulatory, and operational considerations.

This seminar falls under the ICGR's Sports Betting and Tribal tracks of executive education.
