SSM Gaming handed $5,000 fine

By Peter Lynch

The Nevada Gaming Commission has handed a $5,000 fine to Las Vegas slot-route operator SSM Gaming LLC. 

In one of the smallest regulatory fines in recent history, the Nevada Gaming Control Board said the operator failed to register four of its employees until well after they began working. 

The failure to register the employees with the company’s board was seen as a violation of gaming regulations. 

The company had reportedly failed to register employees at various stages over a number of years, with all employees finally registered in 2014. 

According to the five-count complaint filed by the Attorney General’s Office on behalf of the Control Board, one such employee had been with SSM for over a decade, with the anomalies discovered during a routine audit. 

The commission took just minutes to review the complaint and reach an agreement regarding the necessary punishment, with safeguards now in place to prevent any future occurrences of failed registrations at SSM. 

The slot-route operator has agreed to settle the complaint and pay the fine.
