LAS VEGAS (AP) — A former Golden Nugget and Wynn Resorts executive lost his bid for a Nevada gambling license, after regulators rejected his application as unsuitable.

Tim Poster didn't appear Thursday before the Nevada Gaming Commission, which accepted a negative suitability finding from the state Gaming Control Board.

Attorneys Mark Clayton and J.T. Moran III told board Chairman Peter Bernhard they had "extensive" discussions with Poster before he withdrew an appeal for a commission hearing.

Control Board members on Dec. 5 questioned Poster about involvement in illegal Internet sports wagering, hiding evidence from state investigators and ties with a former strip club owner.

In a statement to The Associated Press, Poster acknowledged breaches and said he regretted his mistakes.

Poster can still work as a casino consultant or in a lower-level staff position.
