Gaming control files complaint against Sparks slot route operator

A Sparks-based slot-route operator has been accused of violating state gaming regulations at more than a dozen of its locations, including several in the Carson area.

Dynasty Games is the subject of a Nevada Gaming Control Board complaint.

Slot-route operators place, maintain and operate slot machines typically in smaller businesses such as bars and convenience stores under a master licensing agreement with state gaming regulators.

The locations are almost always those with 15 or fewer slot or poker machines and no live gaming.

As part of that contract, the operator assumes the responsibility for complying with many of the gaming regulations, including those mandating the payment of taxes. Dynasty operates slot machines in many locations in the Reno-Carson City area.

The most prominent operation named in the complaint is Eddie's Fabulous '50s in downtown Reno - an unrestricted location where Dynasty operates a large number of slots.

Eddie's also has music and dancing in a nightclub as well as food service.

But according the the complaint signed by all three members of the control board, Dynasty and owners Roger and Dee Fuller permitted a number of record-keeping violations at Eddie's and owe the state $28,831 in back entertainment taxes. The complaint says they had similar problems at the Speak Easy Casino in Reno but the casino has failed to even respond to letters about the alleged violations.

Violations of record-keeping, failure to report changes in ownership, changes in the number and location of slot machines and other such violations were reported for more than a dozen restricted slot locations operated by Dynasty, according to the complaint.

In addition to Reno-area businesses, those included the Country Store on Highway 50 East, Pata Place in Incline Village, Ranchos Liquor in Gardnerville, 8 Ball Saloon in Moundhouse, Jerry Lee's Crossroads in Silver Springs, the Wildhorse Bar and Grill in Dayton and the Pizza Factory in Fernley.

All counts in the complaint name Dynasty and the Fullers, not the individuals who operate or own those businesses. The complaint asks the Nevada Gaming Commission to take action against the gaming licenses held by Dynasty and the Fullers.
