MISSION

The Gaming Enforcement Division is committed to the strict regulation and control of statutorily authorized gaming entities in conjunction with the Louisiana Gaming Control Board (LGCB). The regulation of gaming and the enforcement of criminal gambling laws promote the public's health, safety, and welfare by safeguarding the people of this state against corrupt and dishonest practices. The Program also provides professional services in an effective, innovative, and fair manner that instills public confidence, while fulfilling duties that ensure accurate revenue collection and reporting from licensees, protect the state's assets, and ensure the integrity of all gaming devices and systems by enforcing compliance with all state laws, regulations, and licensee's internal controls related to legally authorized Gaming in Louisiana.

The Northwest Region has field offices in Lake Charles and Shreveport. Inquiries should be made through the office located nearest the activity in question; however, all inquiries are welcome and will be routed to the appropriate office.

The Indian Gaming Unit is also under the purview of the Northwest Region. The sovereignty of the Indian lands place the need for special attention to be given to the Indian Gaming establishments to ensure the Division continues operating as to the agreements stipulated in the compacts. These signed tribal compacts empower the Division's Indian Gaming personnel to co-regulate the gaming industry on Indian reservations. The Troopers assigned to the Indian Gaming establishments are charged with preventing organized crime and other criminal elements from infiltrating and corrupting games of chance on Indian land. The Division oversees the gaming operations which require it to approve all types of games, rules of play, certify all gaming employees, certify all casino vendors, and enforce criminal statutes on the gaming floor. Presently, three Indian casinos are in operation - Cypress Bayou Casino Resort in Charenton, Paragon Casino Resort in Marksville, and Coushatta Casino Resort in Kinder.
