Nevada Gamblers Will Be Able to Bet From PCs

October 14, 2000|Reuters

Nevada gaming regulators have approved software developed by Virtgame.com Corp. that will allow betting on sports over a closed system using home computers. The Virtgame system will be used by casino operator Coast Resorts Inc. at its Nevada properties. It is much like the closed online systems banks and brokerages used for their customers before Internet commerce became secure, said Dennis Neilander, a member of the Nevada Gaming Control Board. He added that betting will not be available over the Internet. Only people in Nevada will be allowed to use the system because federal law prohibits the placement of bets across state lines.
