Division of Gambling Control
The Division of Gambling Control (Division) regulates legal gambling activities in California to ensure that gambling is conducted honestly, competitively and free from criminal and corruptive elements.
The Division is also responsible for tracking the identity, prior activities, and present location of all gambling enterprise employees, and for ensuring that all gambling enterprise employees hold a valid work permit. Work permits may be issued by the local authority, or by the California Gambling Control Commission in jurisdictions where a locally-issued work permit is not required.
The State gaming agencies and the Tribal Government work together to develop and implement a means of regulating Class III gaming on Tribal lands to ensure the fair and honest operations of gaming. The Division investigates the qualifications of individuals who work as Key Employees in the Tribal Casinos, Vendors who sell Gaming Resources to the Tribes, as well as Financial Sources to determine whether they are suitable pursuant to the Gambling Control Act (Act) (867, statutes of 1997.)
