Former Bally Exec Joins Gaming Board

Former Bally Technologies and Shuffle Master executive Mark Lipparelli has been named to the Nevada Gaming Control Board.

Lipparelli, who was executive vice president of Bally Technologies for four years and vice president of Shuffle Master Inc. for two years prior to that, most recently was head of Gioco Ventures, a technology company he formed when he left Bally nearly two years ago. He was a research analyst for the gaming board during the 1980s.

“Mr. Lipparelli has the perfect background and experience to continue the effectiveness and efficiency we have on the Gaming Control Board,” said Nevada Governor Jim Gibbons in a statement. “His energetic attitude and excellent work ethic will be valuable assets for the board.”

The three-member Gaming Control Board is the investigative arm of Nevada’s regulatory system. It makes recommendations to the Nevada Gaming Commission, which has the final say in all regulatory matters.
