The switch to the new casino codes was announced by the Nevada Gaming Control Board (NVGCB) late last month.
It was one of a series of initiatives to make Nevada casinos more attractive to players, while still keeping them safe and secure.
The first codes were introduced in May, and by September, all casinos were on the new codes.
The casinos were also required to implement a security plan for the switch, which included training and updating staff.
Nevada’s casino industry has been rocked by violent incidents, including the shooting death of two security guards at the Las Vegas Hilton in June, the murder of two Nevada State Police officers at the Bellagio in October, and the fatal shooting of a security guard in January.
The security plan also includes more money for training and improved security protocols at casino machines, including electronic kiosks and security cameras.
The Vegas Hilton casino was one the first casinos to implement the switch.
The Bellagios were the second, and now the third, to follow suit.
The two new codes are based on a set of rules and standards set by the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) to improve the safety and security of the industry.
The rules are meant to be simple and easily understood, and require casinos to report any incidents to the state.
But the code changes have raised concerns from some players and critics, who say they will not protect Nevada players, or give players the protections they have come to expect from casinos.
“The casinos will continue to have a difficult time policing themselves.
The fact that they’re putting a code on every machine that has a switch that they don’t even know what that code means has created a perception that they have a monopoly on casinos,” said Jason Kipnis, the owner of Kipnos, a casino chain in Las Vegas.
Kipnes, who owns the Wynn Resorts in Las Colinas, said he is worried that Nevada will be left behind as other states push to implement similar codes.
“I’m really concerned about that.
It’s like they’re taking a piece of the puzzle off our backs and then throwing it away,” he said.
Las Vegas casino owner Jason Kipson said Nevada is going in the wrong direction.
Kipsons Wynn Resort has been the victim of three armed robberies at the resort.
He said that even if the new code does help to keep people safe, it is not enough.
“It’s going to take time to get it right.
It has to be more than a little bit better than what we have right now,” he told ABC News.
“We’re not going to be able to have this seamless transition to the next generation of casino machines until it’s safe.”
The new casino games are not only safer for players but also more lucrative, which is good for the state and casino operators.
Nevada has become a top casino state by generating $14 billion in revenue from gaming over the last three years, according to data from the Nevada State Gaming Control Commission.
“The industry’s going through a lot of turmoil right now, and we’ve been seeing a lot more of that lately.
And we need to find a way to bring casino revenues up to match the level of our other industries, which are generating billions of dollars in revenue for Nevada,” Nevada Gaming Commission President Robert Johnson told ABCNews.
Johnson added that casinos need to create more jobs and pay more taxes to support the state’s economy.
“They’re going to have to come up with a solution that is fair, equitable and sustainable,” Johnson said.
