Introduction

Casinos are under increasing governmental pressure to develop stronger and more effective Anti-Money Laundering (AML)/Combatting the Financing of Terrorism (CFT) controls. In the efforts against money laundering and terrorism financing casinos are subject to a list of requirements as set forth in both national and international laws and regulations. The daily operations of casinos tend to be intrinsically different than many other organizations that are subject to the same AML/CFT regulations. Therefore, it is important to fully assess a casino’s operations to ensure that all compliance activities meet the legal requirements in a manner that best suits the organization.

During this training the main focus will be specifically on how to conduct proper transaction monitoring (real time and post event) to insure the timely detection of unusual transactions and timely reporting to the FIU.

Furthermore, we will discuss the implementation of the AML regulations in Casinos and dive into the challenges for casinos to comply with the legislation illustrated with practical examples and discuss Money Laundering typologies for casinos.
