Gaming control boards are independent bodies that oversee and promulgate rules and regulations regarding the gaming industry. They stem from the enabling act, which sets broad gaming policy. These rules provide detailed requirements for gaming establishments, and they cover a wide range of topics, including licensing, accounting, and auditing. Many of these rules are related to social responsibility, and the board works to discourage gambling addiction and ensure fair play. It is important to understand the differences between a gaming control board and a traditional judicial system.
In most states, gaming control boards are responsible for regulating the industry, ensuring that it complies with gaming laws and regulations.

The Nevada Gaming Control Board issues licenses to gaming establishments, governing their ownership, employee rights, and the type of games they host. In some states, there are multiple gaming control boards, such as California, New Jersey, and Mississippi, and the Board of Gaming Regulation in Nevada.
In the United Kingdom, a gaming control board regulates casino gambling. It issues licenses to online gaming companies and oversees all gambling activities in the state. The boards may use different names, such as the UK Gambling Commission or Curacao eGaming Licensing Authority. In the Netherlands, the Curacao Gaming control board regulated online gambling before. However, in many jurisdictions, the Gaming Control Board is the same as the state’s Gambling Commission.
Pennsylvania’s Gaming Control Board has recently undergone a major public outcry.

Native American tribes have their own gaming control boards. These boards are independent from the tribes and ensure accountability and transparency. Native American casinos are governed by the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act, which is enforced by the National Indian Gaming Commission. This Act sets minimum internal control standards for Native gaming institutions. The National Indian Gaming Commission does not have jurisdiction over state-regulated casinos. There are different types of gaming control boards. The purpose of these boards is to regulate the gaming industry in a specific way and to protect the interests of the Native Americans.
