Class A Licensing
CLASS A VENDOR LICENSING PROCESS
Obtaining a Class A Tribal Vendor License from the Fort McDowell Tribal Gaming Office and a Certification from the Arizona Department of Gaming will require some time and effort on the behalf of the applicant. A set of application forms must be completed for both regulatory agencies, licensing and certification fees must be paid, and certain key individuals within the company may undergo a comprehensive criminal and financial background investigation.
