Land-based gaming in NV

What else can I bet on in Nevada?

Nevada offers one of the most diverse selections of gambling options in the US. With over 100 casinos in the state, each establishment is sure to have a wide choice of games. Physical casinos across Las Vegas and the states’ other counties offer a variety of gambling activities including sports betting and almost every casino game imaginable from slots to blackjack.

The only sites licensed to operate in the state of Nevada are the World Series of Poker and Real Gaming Online Poker. Real Gaming Online Poker is run by the South Point Hotel Casino and Spa. There are no online casino sites in the state. However, Bill AB114, the bill that legalized online poker sites also contains provisions for online casino gambling. At the moment the state is assessing whether or not to allow online casino games to operate in the state. If the state chooses to allow these games then there would be no shortage of US betting sites available to Nevada residents.

Social casino sites are also big in Nevada in absence of real money casino gambling sites. One of the most popular social sites is MGM’s Mirage, which can be accessed through the MyVegas app. This platform is free to use and allows players to redeem loyalty points, which can be cashed in for a number of deals at its casino. Unlike other states, Nevada does not have a state-run lottery. This is due to the large casino presence in the state and instead, progressive slot machines take the place of the state lottery.

Offshore

Are offshore gambling sites legal in Nevada?

Offshore gambling sites are not regulated in the state of Nevada are therefore illegal. Although there is one online poker site in Nevada, we recommend steering clear of offshore gambling sites. This is because the vast majority of offshore gambling sites don’t have a license to operate in Nevada and are not subject to strict regulatory standards. This means they may not be secure or may not have player protection measures in place to protect vulnerable players. You also have no way of finding out who is handling the money you deposit into an online account.

You can spot offshore gambling sites by looking at the website’s domain name. If you see a domain that ends in .EU or .AG it does not hold a license to operate in Nevada and therefore should be avoided at all costs.

Is it safe to bet on sports in Nevada?

All of the sportsbooks in Nevada are fully licensed and regulated and therefore guarantee fair results and a safe betting experience. Licensed sportsbooks have a number of standards and criteria that they must meet in order to operate, these include player protection procedures and to encourage responsible gambling. However, to make sure gambling remains fun, it’s important to gamble responsibly and avoid betting more than you can afford to. If you have any concerns about problem gambling involving yourself or a loved one the Nevada Council on Problem Gambling has a number of resources to help you.

The Nevada Council on Problem Gambling can be contacted via:

Phone – (702) 369-9740

Who regulates sports gambling in Nevada?

NV sports betting history

The journey to legal and regulated sports betting in Nevada

Where other US states have only just begun to legalize and regulate sports betting in the wake of the PASPA repeal, Nevada has actually offered sports betting for many years now. It wasn’t until the 1930s and the construction of the Hoover Dam that the state government saw the benefits of legalizing gambling.

1931 – Thousands of US citizens relocated to Nevada to work on the construction of the Hoover Dam. As it was a predominantly male workforce there was a demand for different forms of entertainment. Local business owners and organized crime syndicates helped put together showgirl theaters and casinos.

After realizing how profitable the gambling and entertainment sector would be for local businesses, the state government legalized gambling in Nevada. At this point, there were a number of small unregulated casinos already operating in Las Vegas which put them in good standing to establish a stronger presence in the state.

The Northern Club was the first Las Vegas casino to be issued a gambling license followed by many other establishments.

In regard to sports betting, it was mostly illegal bookmakers and small standalone establishments (both legal and some illegal) that offered sports wagers. These included establishments like the Derby and Saratoga clubs and the Hollywood Horse and Sports Book.

1951 – In reaction to the opposition of gambling on sporting events outside of Nevada, the US federal government imposed a 10% tax on all of Nevada’s legal sportsbook operations with the introduction of the Revenue Act 1951. This act was significant as it was intended to “facilitate the enforcement of state criminal laws against gambling.” This high tax rate managed to regulate the market but at the same time forced a lot of legitimate sportsbooks to close their doors as it became too expensive to operate. Nevada sportsbooks eventually found a way around this and continued to conduct business by instead writing betting slips for 10% of the cash put down on a bet, with a note made on the betting slip highlighting the intended wager.

1971 – On October 15, the federal government did away with the 10% tax rate on sportsbooks and lowered the rate to 2% opening the market up to a considerable number of businesses in Nevada. It is also worth noting that prior to this tax change almost none of the establishments in the state of Nevada offered sports betting or horse racing options.

1975 – Nevada sports betting launched and the first sportsbook inside of a Nevada casino was opened. This sportsbook was opened at the Union Plaza.

1976 – The design and layout that is seen across many of Nevada’s sportsbooks were first implemented as a prototype during this year at the Stardust Resort and Casino. The sportsbooks featured enough seats for 300 patrons and six massive television screens.

1983 – In January the federal government went a step further and reduced the 2% tax on sportsbooks to 0.25%. Not only did this mean that sportsbooks would be able to generate higher profits, it also opened up the sports betting market in Nevada allowing Casino establishments regardless of the size to begin offering sports betting to patrons. This eventually became one of the main attractions for Nevada, drawing in visitors from across the US where sports betting had not yet been legalized.

1992 – Congress passed the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) prohibiting sports betting across US states. Four states were made exempt from the law: Nevada, Delaware, Oregon, and Montana.

2018 – On 14 May, the Court reached a decision. In a 7 – 2 vote, it was agreed that one of the clauses in PASPA violated the Tenth Amendment as it commandeered power from states to regulate their own gambling industries.

This made it legal for a state government to regulate their own gambling industries and therefore legalize sports betting if it wished. This also provided an opportunity for US bookmakers in Nevada to expand their presence to their states across the US where gambling is legal.
