ADMINISTRATION

We are continuing to work on our daily procedures and guidance policies. The Director met again with several other gaming commissions/agencies and the State of Oklahoma on new compact audit requirements.

LICENSING DEPARTMENT

All gaming vendor invoicing remains completed for the annual renewal of all companies, requiring licensing for annual gaming vendor renewals and for vendors during the month October 2017, and/or the calendar year. Vendor licensing is continuous with the annual renewals for all gaming and gaming related vendors doing business with both Downstream Casino Resort and Quapaw Casino. Ending with October we have a total of 727 licensed and/or registered vendors.

We review the Electronic Gaming Machines at Quapaw Casino and Downstream Casino Resort as they enable continuous upgrades and changes that are being made to offer the most popular electronic gaming machines to be on the floor. The QTGA agents are continuing to work on our daily procedures and guidance policies. We currently have two vacancies in our Compliance Departments, one at Downstream and one at Quapaw.

October employee licensing reported is below. Up-dating renewal licenses at both casinos remain an on-going priority.

COMPLIANCE DEPARTMENT

Quapaw Casino and Downstream Casino Resort have continuous upgrades and changes that are being made to enable the most popular electronic gaming machines to be on the floor. This will give the patrons a more excellent variety of machines to play. The Compliance Agents are continuing to work on the training information to assist in preparation of the training and/or procedural manuals for the QTGA.

IT DEPARTMENT

The IT Agent continues to make sure the QTGA systems are up and operating properly. We have obtained a new technical line to enhance the service at Quapaw Casino. He maintains all QTGA systems for all electronic and communication requirements.

AUDIT AND INVESTIGATION DEPARTMENTS

The changes in internal auditing for the QTGA have proven to be successful. The separation of job duties between casinos has been so successful we have transitioned our Internal Auditing Department the same way.
