The COVID-19 pandemic witnessed gambling establishments revolutionize their process to keep the momentum of gaming on track. The state of Nevada already renders legal sports betting and poker for the gambling community. To have a tighter grip on the gambling ecosystem the state is now considering venturing into a new territory of online casino gaming.
For the review and implementation plan of online casino gaming, a conference will be conducted on the 13th of May 2021. This conference will be held in a physical and online mode along with the people of the state and the Gaming Control Board of Nevada. The discussion between the two parties will explore the implications of the already implanted interactive gaming law authorized by the state of Nevada.
Investors who hold positions of power in the online gambling space will be allowed to showcase their persuasive points and how it will help the state leverage. The chance to vote will be given to propagators of online gambling next Thursday on 13th May 2021.
However, on the other hand, casino establishments that house physical gaming have been silent on this conversation to authorize online gambling.
It’s no surprise that physical gambling establishments aren’t supportive of the move as their businesses will see a dip. Currently, Nevada is a hotbed for Casinos having more than 200 physical establishments present. These establishments build tax revenue for the state. The Silver State is in a dilemma over the digital transformation of gambling.
This move towards transitioning into online gambling in Nevada has been under discussion for the last 20 years. The implementation has been long-awaited. The current market situation calls for a fresh approach in the gambling ecosystem and a solution that’s safer for patrons. Considering the safety that online gaming will provide, Nevada may opt for authorization of online gambling.
