In Vegas You Will Soon One Able To Gamble Using Handheld Mobile Devices
Nevada Gaming Commission announces that such systems are secure and reliable. From legislation to implementation seems to be taking an age, but the greatly anticipated use of hand held mobile gambling communication apparatuses while present at brick and mortar land situated resort and casino properties, this week moved a bit closer with an important Nevada Gaming Commission discovery.
The gambling regulators, in a opening step mandatory before adopting the real mobile gambling regulations, determined on a undivided vote that the gambling systems are safe and dependable, and can be set up to guarantee minors are barred and the devices can be limited to approved casino areas.
The wireless, hand-held, gambling devices are intended to increase the areas in casinos where gamblers can set bets – together with even the buffet lines or by the pool.
It is expected that the commission’s March 23 meeting in Las Vegas will be the venue for adoption of the rules for the devices. Although the procedure leading up to market accessibility of the devices is anticipated to take several more months, one application from a manufacturer, Diamond Systems, is already on file.
Following the vote, head of the Nevada Resort Association Bill Bible described this as being one of the last steps in the process leading to the issuing of casino licensees for use of these devices if they so desire. By a law that was approved last year by legislators, Nevada became the first U.S. state to allow for the use of the handheld, wireless gambling devices at its hotels and casinos.
The interpretation of this development by many industry observers is that this is a “foot in the door” action by the major land casino companies, those that would like to in time make Internet-based gambling available.
