CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - The owner of a Carson City casino is in
trouble with Nevada gaming regulators for using unauthorized poker
chips in tournaments.

Attorneys for Cactus Jack's casino say club owner David Scott Tate will pay $15,000 in fines for the violations. The settlement was approved Thursday by the Nevada Gaming Commission.

Regulations say that chips used in gaming transactions must be approved by the Gaming Control Board chairman. Regulations govern
the chip size and shape, and specify that chips must have the words "no cash value" imprinted on both sides.

The Nevada Appeal reports Tate also agreed to more oversight from state regulators as part of the settlement.

Tate operates several casinos and a slot route company.
