Jennifer Togliatti

Chairwoman, Nevada Gaming Commission

Jennifer Togliatti

After 25 years as a deputy district attorney and a judge in the Nevada District Court, Jennifer Togliatti has a new challenge. She was appointed in October 2021 as the first woman to chair the Nevada Gaming Commission. The commission is the final step in the regulatory process whether it’s licensing, regulations or sanctions. The Nevada Gaming Control Board makes recommendations that the commission can either affirm or deny. Togliatti says she’s use her judicial experience and rely on the staff of the control board to educate her on the sometimes complicated technology of gaming. She spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros via Zoom in December.

Roger Gros is publisher of Global Gaming Business, the industry's leading gaming trade publication, and all its related publications. Prior to joining Global Gaming Business, Gros was president of Inlet Communications, an independent consulting firm. He was vice president of Casino Journal Publishing Group from 1984-2000, and held virtually every editorial title during his tenure. Gros was editor of Casino Journal, the National Gaming Summary and the Atlantic City Insider, and was the founding editor of Casino Player magazine. He was a co-founder of the American Gaming Summit and the Southern Gaming Summit conferences and trade shows. He is the author of the best-selling book, How to Win at Casino Gambling (Carlton Books, 1995), now in its fourth edition. Gros was named "Businessman of the Year" for 1998 by the Greater Atlantic City Chamber of Commerce, and received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Gaming Association in 2012.
