The N.C. State Lottery Commission took last week its next step to establishing mobile sports betting by hiring a gaming consultant.
Gaming Laboratories International, a Massachusetts-based firm focused on testing and certification in the gaming industry, will assist with establishing sports betting regulation in North Carolina by the current June 14 deadline.
The commission also has posted a request for proposal for an enterprise regulatory system that will allow potential licensees to apply for a license online and manage licensing and regulatory requirements and structures throughout the life of a license. Responses are due by Wednesday.
Gaming Laboratories will support the commission in several key areas of operations, including rule-making, licensing procedures, development of an audit program and risk control.
