    Chapter 12:

      Section: 5:12-141.2: Expiration of gaming-related obligations owed to patrons; date of expiration; payment to casino revenue fund.

          
24. Expiration of gaming-related obligations owed to patrons; date of expiration; payment to Casino Revenue Fund.

a. Whenever a casino licensee owes a patron a specific amount of money as the result of a gaming transaction which remains unpaid due to the failure of the patron to claim the money or redeem a representation of the debt issued in a form approved by the commission, regardless of whether the identity of the patron is known, the casino licensee shall maintain a record of the obligation in accordance with the rules of the division.

b. If the patron does not claim the money or redeem the representation of debt within one year of the date of the transaction, which date shall be established in accordance with the rules of the division, the obligation of the casino licensee to pay the patron shall expire, and 25\% of the money or the value of the debt shall be paid to the Casino Revenue Fund by the casino licensee, and the remaining 75\% shall be retained by the casino licensee, provided the licensee uses the full amount for marketing purposes. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the obligation was incurred or the representation of debt was issued prior to the effective date of this act, P.L.2009, c.36, the obligation of the casino licensee to pay the patron shall expire one year after such effective date, at which time 50\% of the money or the value of the debt shall be paid to the Casino Revenue Fund, subject to a credit for the payment required to be made to that fund on or before June 30, 2009 by the casino licensee pursuant to subsection c. of this section, and 50\% shall be retained by the casino licensee.

c. Each casino licensee shall, on or before June 30, 2009, make a payment to the Casino Revenue Fund in an amount equal to 25\% of the value of the money or debt owed to its patrons as a result of gaming transactions that occurred more than one year prior to the effective date of this act, P.L.2009, c.36. This payment shall be credited towards the total obligation of the casino licensee to make payments to the Casino Revenue Fund in an amount equal to 50\% of the value of expired gaming related obligations pursuant to subsection b. of this section.

L.2009, c.36, s.24; amended 2011, c.19, s.96.
