The American Institute of CPAs has issued a proposed update to its audit guide for the gambling industry that takes into account some recent issues faced by casinos.

The enhanced version provides guidance to address the proliferation of tribal casinos that need to follow state and local government generally accepted accounting principles. It also covers accounting issues related to progressive jackpots.

Other new topics include illustrative guidance when accounting for guarantees, guidance regarding the New Jersey Casino Reinvestment Development Authority and guidance for currency transaction reporting in the gaming industry.
