On March 4, 2016, the University of Nevada – Las Vegas (“UNLV”) announced the launch of the International Center for Gaming Regulation (“Center”), a body dedicated to research in the fields of gaming regulation and policy.

The Center is a partnership between UNLV’s International Gaming Institute and the William S. Boyd School of Law. It has been sponsored by a number of public and private parties, including the Association of Gaming Equipment Manufacturers and Gaming Laboratories International, and received a $500,000 annual allocation from the Nevada Governor’s office and State Legislature. The Center will offer educational services and research in the fields of gaming policy and law, licensing and registration, regulatory compliance, corporate governance, enforcement, and best practices.

Andre Wilsenach, a former gaming regulator and policy expert from South Africa, will lead the Center as its Executive Director. Mr. Wilsenach led the Aldernay Gambling Control Commission for 14 years prior to his appointment to the Center’s leadership.

“There are emerging markets in Asia, Latin America, Eastern Europe, and elsewhere that will all need guidance in operating and functioning according to the highest regulatory standards….I am looking forward to applying my experience and knowledge of regulating both land-based and online gaming sectors in promoting best practices across the world,” stated Mr. Wilsenach in a press release on the matter.

More information on the Center is available at its website at: https://www.unlv.edu/icgr
