A member of the Nevada Gaming Control Board said casino licensees should continue to keep their distance from Internet gambling companies that accept wagers from U.S. citizens.

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Randall Sayre told a gaming attorney that his advice about avoiding business with certain online gambling operators was "sound from both a state and federal perspective."

From Casino City:

Sayre said any current business relationships are being explored by the regulatory agency.

"Those activities that require board review and approval are being looked at more closely so that determinations can be made as to whether business relationships between Nevada licensees and Internet-based companies violate state and federal law/regulations," Sayre wrote.
