The state Gaming Control Board approved the licensing by unanimous vote.

The Nevada Gaming Control Board has recommended licensing approval for Terrible’s Gaming to install slot machines in 30 Albertsons grocery store locations throughout the state, according to a local report in the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

The recent proposal requested a change in route providers, something the board considered “a routine consent item.” As a result, the board unanimously approved the change in licensing.

Each Nevada Albertsons store would gain the maximum number of 15 slot machines. Jett Gaming, doing business as Terrible’s Gaming, would service all 450 machines as the new slot-route operator.

The Idaho-based store chain had to show the technology it uses to safeguard against illegal and underage play, as well as provide schematic illustrations as part of its negotiation with Jett. Albertsons requested 30 separate restricted licenses that allow for up to 15 slot machines per store.

The concept of grocery store slot machines is not a new one to Nevada residents. Stores have featured slot machines for years, an idea known around the state as an “only-in-Nevada” scenario. Slot machines statewide are also common in convenience stores, restaurants and taverns throughout Nevada.

The Nevada Gaming Commission is expected to meet June 22 to consider final licensing approval. According to the local report, Albertsons representatives waived the right to appear and did not explain why a change in licensing was made.

Control Board Chairman Kirk Hendrick told the Review-Journal that Albertson’s customer “won’t see any difference” in how the store’s current slot machines are run.

The Albertsons store chain was founded by Joe Albertson in 1939 and currently has 2,253 stores throughout the US.
