The Gambling Control Act and the California Gambling Control Commission's Regulations require owners of Third-Party Providers of Proposition Player Services (TPPPS) 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.
