The National Indian Gaming Commission is amending agency procedures for calculating the amount of annual fee a gaming operation owes to the NIGC. The amendment excludes certain promotional credits from the calculation of the annual fee a gaming operation owes.

This change is effective October 6, 2022.

The NIGC amends 25 CFR Part 514.4 by revising paragraph (c) to read as follows:

514.4 How does a gaming operating calculate the amount of the annual fee it owes?

c) For purposes of computing fees, assessable gross revenues for each gaming operation are the total amount of money wagered on class II and III games, plus entry fees (including table or card fees), less any amounts paid out as prizes or paid for prizes awarded, less any amounts wagered that the gaming operation issued as promotional credits, and less an allowance for capital expenditures for structures as reflected in the gaming operation’s audited financial statements.
