Gaming board files complaint against Bally Technologies alleging unregistered employees

The Nevada Gaming Control Board has filed a 28-count complaint against Bally Technologies, accusing the slot machine operator of failing to register its employees with the state.

State law requires an employee to be registered with the state before working in gaming operations.

Many of the counts in the complaint — filed on Christmas Eve — claim that the registrations were a few weeks or months late. One count applies to a worker who was employed for 10 years, from 2003 to 2013, before being registered. Most of the unregistered employees were engineers.

The complaint noted that Bally paid a $65,000 fine in 2008 for failing to register 56 gaming workers.

In the complaint, the board said this was an unsuitable method of operation and grounds for disciplinary action. The board asks the state Gaming Commission to impose a fine for each of the 28 violations and take action against the license of Bally, whose headquarters is at 6601 S. Bermuda Road in Las Vegas.

Bally has a chance to contest the complaint. In most cases, a settlement is reached before a hearing before the commission.
