ABOUT THE OFFICE
As a part of the Upstate New York Gaming Economic Development Act of 2013, the Office of the Gaming Inspector General was created to promote transparency and accountability and to ensure that all lawful gaming in New York State, including horse racing and casino and mobile wagering, are of the highest integrity, credibility, and quality. The Gaming Inspector General is tasked with investigating allegations of corruption, fraud, criminal activity and conflicts of interest or abuse related to gaming activity. Notably, all New York State Gaming Commission employees have an affirmative obligation to promptly report any information concerning such activity.
In June of 2021 the Gaming Inspector General was brought under the umbrella of the Office of the New York State Inspector General.
