This is to notify you of a Rulemaking hearing that will be held at the Division of Gaming’s monthly Commission meeting on Thursday, July 16, 2020, beginning at 9:15 am. The Division of Gaming offices are only open to the public via pre-arranged appointment. The July meeting may be held in person, may be held by video conference, or both. Stakeholders will be notified as far in advance as possible.

This hearing will include proposed changes to Rule 8 Rules for Blackjack, Rule 10 Rules for Poker, Rule 21 Rules for Blackjack-Poker Combination Games, and Rule 22 Rules for Roulette.  Bally Technologies, which owns several table games approved for use in Colorado, underwent a corporate name change to SC Gaming Inc. as of January 1, 2020.  All table games that named Bally Technologies as the owner are being updated to reflect the change to SC Gaming Inc.

An emergency change to Gaming Rule 24 Limited Gaming Fund, will also be presented at this Rulemaking hearing.  Regulation 30-2403 Determination of Tax Revenues Attributable to Extended and Limited Gaming, outlines the formula for determining limited gaming revenues.  The current formula is not workable at this time due to the unanticipated drastic decline in gaming revenues rendering the extended limited gaming fund to decline into negative numbers, therefore the formula is being modified.  

This hearing will also satisfy the stakeholder workshop requirement. Any stakeholder is welcome to attend and testify at the Rulemaking hearing. Written comments must be received by July 10. Written comments may be sent to the Division at the Golden office, or e-mailed to
