Gaming Commission – FAQ
Why does the Gaming License application require so much information?
The Federal Government includes Indian gaming operations, conducted under or pursuant to the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA), in the definition of a financial institution i.e.: banks, credit unions, etc. Financial institutions must conduct thorough background checks for all applicants desiring to work for them; therefore, the NHBP Gaming Commission also must be thorough in determining suitability for licensing someone who wants to work for FireKeepers Casino and Hotel. The information within the application is used in collaboration with the background investigation to make a suitability determination. The following is reviewed and considered, but is not limited to:
