Connecticut Gaming Policy Board Insight

Feather News

The Feather News has added links so members can read the minutes of Connecticut's Gaming Policy Review Board, which is responsible for overseeing all gambling in the state.

Recent meetings of the gaming board have discussed topics such as whether the state should add keno to their own arsenal of lotteries, the issue of why the same physical address keeps showing up on many casino employees' applications, large jackpots paid out by the two Tribal casinos, the reason for fluctuations in the numbers of slot machines at the two Tribal casinos, backlogs of casino employee licensing applications and much more.

In addition to the two Tribal casinos in the state, the Connecticut Gaming Policy Board also oversees the state's bingo, greyhound racing, charitable raffles, and the lottery.

Readers can scan down the right-hand side of the this blog site to find links to their meeting minutes for 2008.
