4 4 ALCOHOL AND GAMING DIVISION ABOUT THE DIVISION Mandate Pursuant to Section 40 of the Gaming Control Act, the Minister of Service Nova Scotia and Municipal Relations is "responsible for regulating casinos and other lottery schemes and for administering this Part in the public interest and in accordance with the principles of honesty and integrity." On behalf of the Minister, the Alcohol and Gaming Division (the "Division") licenses and monitors the conduct of casinos, bingos, lotteries and other games of chance (except harness racing), to ensure that these games are carried out in the best social and economic interests of Nova Scotians. Workforce With its head office located in Dartmouth, and a regional office in Sydney, the Alcohol and Gaming Division maintains a workforce around the province. CORE FUNCTIONS Registration and Licensing Pursuant to the Gaming Control Act, the Nova Scotia Alcohol and Gaming Division registers individuals and companies who supply goods and services to regulated gaming activities. During the 2012/2013 fiscal year, the Division s registry consisted of a total of 143 casino gaming, casino non-gaming, and bingo suppliers, compared to a total of 126 in 2011/2012.
5 ALCOHOL AND GAMING DIVISION 5 The Division also conducts security checks on personnel related to the gaming industry, including all casino staff, employees of the Nova Scotia Provincial Lotteries and Casino Corporation and the Alcohol and Gaming Division. Different levels of security clearances are applied, depending on one s position in an organization or the type of service one provides (i.e., suppliers of actual gambling equipment are held to a higher degree of scrutiny than the suppliers of non-gaming related suppliers such as restaurant equipment). In 2012/2013, the Division conducted security checks on 201 new and 258 renewal casino employees, compared to 284 new and 248 renewal casino employees in 2011/2012.

The Alcohol and Gaming Division issues gaming licenses to organizations that raise funds for charitable purposes, including bingos, ticket lotteries (prize value over $500), and carnival games of chance. In addition, permits are issued for ticket lotteries with a prize value of less than $500.

Furthermore, Investigation and Enforcement staff conduct inspections at the two casinos to ensure compliance with casino regulations and detailed internal control procedures. Investigation and Enforcement has a staff complement located throughout the province.

The Section also monitors payout percentages for video lottery terminals (VLTs) in liquor licensed premises in the province. Investigation and Enforcement is also responsible for reviewing and making recommendations with respect to all approval requests from the casino operator pertaining to: casino surveillance and security systems; permitted games of chance played in casinos; Rules of Play; and slot machine installations, modifications, removals and relocations.
