Powerhouse signs Administrative Consent Agreement
BISMARCK, ND - Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem has reinstated the license for Powerhouse Gaming, Inc., an electronic pull tab device manufacturer whose license the Attorney General suspended in July, 2020, after determining that the company was using a type of software in its electronic pull tab machines in violation of the law.
Powerhouse has since provided satisfactory proof that it has purchased and deployed the required software licenses on all the devices operating in North Dakota.
Under the terms of a consent agreement, Powerhouse Gaming, Inc., admitted that it had engaged in acts that violated state gaming regulations and agreed to a fine of $25,000 payable immediately. An additional $25,000 fine is suspended for two years, if Powerhouse does not violate any other gaming laws or regulations in that time.
Charitable gaming organizations have been notified that they can resume use of the electronic pull tab devices that had been shut down under the suspension order.
