Third-Party Providers of Proposition Players Registration And Gambling Businesses

The Gambling Control Act and the California Gambling Control Commission's Regulations require owners of Third-Party Providers of Proposition Player Services (TPPPS) and Gambling Businesses (GB) to apply for and obtain a registration and, after receiving a summons from the Bureau of Gambling Control (Bureau), a license.

Background investigations are conducted by Bureau Licensing staff on applicants to determine whether they are suitable to hold a license. Suitability is determined by a number of factors including, but not limited to, the applicant's honesty, integrity, general character, reputation, habits, and financial and criminal history.

TPPPS - (An Agreement Exists With the Gambling Establishment to Provide Proposition Player Services)

A TPPPS is a business that provides services in and to a gambling establishment under any written, oral, or implied agreement with the gambling establishment, which services include play as a participant in any controlled game that has a rotating player-dealer position as permitted by Penal Code section 330.11.

Prior to providing proposition player services in a California gambling establishment, the TPPPS and its owners and employees must obtain a registration. In addition, they must submit the agreement, in the form of a written contract, and a playing book form to the Bureau for prior approval.

Gambling Businesses - (No Oral, Written, or Implied Agreement Exists With the Gambling Establishment to Provide Proposition Player Services)

In this context, a gambling business (GB) is a business enterprise that engages the services of employees, independent contractors, or both to participate in the play of any controlled game in a gambling establishment that has a rotating player-dealer position as permitted by Penal Code section 330.11. Gambling businesses do not operate under any written, oral, or implied agreement with the gambling establishment, and must first be registered with the Commission and have their playing book form approved by the Bureau prior to conducting business in California.

GB REGISTRATION FORMS

The Bureau will issue a summons to registered third party providers and gambling businesses to submit requests to convert their registrations to licenses.
