Lewis Roca Rothgerber Attorney Anthony Cabot Edits Comprehensive New Book on International Gaming Law and Policy

Lewis Roca Rothgerber LLP proudly announces the release of Regulating Land-Based Casinos: Policies, Procedures, and Economics, a comprehensive guide to international gaming regulation. Edited by Lewis Roca Rothgerber attorney Anthony Cabot and UNLV William S. Boyd School of Law Associate Dean Ngai Pindell, the book explores new and important policy questions about the role of government in gaming regulation, obligations and opportunities for casinos and public support for gambling and gaming tax revenue.

“Mr. Cabot and Dr. Pindell have compiled ‘must-read’ materials for gaming regulators, executives and practitioners on the most significant issues facing the gaming industry today,” said Peter Bernhard, former Nevada Gaming Commission chairman.

"This book is the cutting edge of casino law and regulation,” said Dr. David Schwartz, Director of the Center for Gaming Research at UNLV. “Its authors, distinguished experts in their specialties, bring knowledge and nuance to a series of complex issues."

Regulating Land-Based Casinos: Policies, Procedures, and Economics is truly a groundbreaking work that will shape the best practices of the rapidly maturing gaming industry,” said Pindell.

Once restricted to exotic locations like Las Vegas, Macau and Monte Carlo, casinos are now flourishing in locations from the Maryland waterfront to Ho Chi Minh City. Historically, legislators have sought the most stringent regulatory regimes, but governments are quickly learning what challenges and benefits to expect from a regulated casino industry.

Whether a jurisdiction is considering legalizing gaming or deciding how to regulate an existing gaming industry, Regulating Land-Based Casinos: Policies, Procedures, and Economics considers gaming research from a wide variety of disciplines, including law, business, social sciences, economics and tax to explain the many approaches a jurisdiction might take to identify and address important policy goals.

The book will be available in late September at the UNLV Gaming Press website, http://gamingpress.unlv.edu/.
