The Coyote Valley Gaming Commission has been delegated the responsibility of enforcing all applicable tribal, state, and federal laws, and the regulations promulgated by the Gaming Commission for the purpose of carrying out its duties under the Compact and the Gaming Ordinance.
The Gaming Commission has a regulatory responsibility to ensure that: (1) any game offered for play to the general public is truly a random game of chance; (2) the facility where any gaming activity takes place is safe and poses no danger to the public or employees who work in the facility; (3) the assets of the casino are accurately counted and accounted for (i.e., that no thefts occur within the casino and that the income generated from the operation of the casino is used strictly to pay for the cost of the facility, expansion of the facility and payments to the Tribe); (4) any disputes regarding the payment of a jackpot which arise between the casino and a patron are fairly resolved; and (5) undesirable or unsuitable employees or patrons are not allowed to work in or frequent the casino.
The Commission makes decisions pertaining to the adoption of regulations and standards that comply with applicable law, investigates issues of non-compliance, conducts background checks, and grants deny or revoke Gaming Licenses. The Gaming Commission is a quasi-judicial body and bases its decisions on facts and evidence contained in their records.
