In 2013, the Nevada Legislature authorized independent test labs (ITL) registered with the Nevada Gaming Commission to test gambling games and gaming technology that would be used in Nevada for compliance with the Nevada regulatory requirements.

Effective April 1, 2017, manufacturers may request either the Nevada Gaming Control Board (Board) Technology Division or a registered ITL to test new associated equipment, cashless wagering systems, mobile gaming systems, interactive gaming systems, or gaming devices. Manufacturers continue to be required to obtain ITL inspection and certification for any new gambling games and/or routine modifications to any of the foregoing types of gaming technology or to gambling games.

The industry notice is available at http://gaming.nv.gov/modules/showdocument.aspx?documentid=11963.
