LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Prepaid debit cards tied to a casino customer's rewards account have been approved for wagering on slot machines in Nevada.

The Nevada Gaming Commission voted 4-0 Thursday to approve amendments in state regulations, paving the way for the use of the cards.

The action was taken with the support of several major gambling companies and Sightline Payments, a Las Vegas-based payment processing business.

Attorney Dennis Neilander, who represents Sightline, told the commission the changes address concerns raised by the Nevada Council on Problem Gambling, which has long fought the use of traditional credit cards on gambling devices.

The Gaming Control Board must approve the technology before the cards can be used.
