A gaming license is an opportunity for you to participate in an excited and growing business in New Haven. In order to obtain your license, you must file the proper application with the Division of Special Revenue, which includes photographs and fingerprints. They will conduct a background search as well as provide your information to the state police and FBI to do a thorough background check. Your information will be gathered and presented to a review committee. If approved, you may begin operating legalized gambling within your business.
You Could Lose Your License
Your license is not guaranteed, though. If the Gaming Division finds that you have violated any part of your license, your license may be revoked. Some reasons a license may be revoked are:
Illegal violations. Knowingly aiding, abetting, or conspiring to commit a crime could lead to a revoked license.
Failing to check identification. Patrons must be over the legal age limit to participate in gambling, that is why it is important to check identification.
Felony convictions. Any conviction of a federal crime could result in a revoked license.
