For Bobbi Kristina Brown, more may have happened in Vegas recently than just attending the Billboard Music Awards.

Nevada gaming officials are looking into allegations that Whitney Houston's 19-year-old daughter was spotted playing the slot machines at Las Vegas' MGM Grand last weekend in violation of state law prohibiting anyone under the age of 21 from gambling.

Word of the investigation was first reported by the Las Vegas Review-Journal after TMZ posted video of what appeared to be Houston and her 22-year-old "adopted brother" (and rumored paramour) Nick Gordon on the hotel-casino's floor playing a slot game.

E! News could not immediately confirm the identity of the woman on tape as Bobbi Kristina, who was in town accepting the Millennium Award on her late mother's behalf at the Billboard Music Awards, which was held at the hotel.

Regarding the probe, Gaming Control Board Chairman Mark Lipparelli tells E! News that while he will not comment on any specific case, his office looks at all cases brought to their attention and makes judgments on the facts as they become available.

The board handles about 300 cases a year involving underage gaming, which is a misdemeanor punishable by up to six months in jail or a fine of $1,000.

A Houston family rep had no comment.

MGM Resorts spokesman Gordon Absher released a statement saying the hotel is "cooperating fully with Nevada gaming authorities as they look into the reported incident."
