Offshore Online Ads Hit Nevadans
By Earl
There is a new twist in the conflict between I-gambling and land based traditional gambling. And a new boldness on the part of the law, at least in Nevada, where land-based casinos provide a huge part of the state’s economy.

Speaking to those at the Internet Gambling World Conference at the Bellagio Resort, Scott Scherer, a member of the Nevada Gaming Control Board, said that he may ask the Nevada State Attorney General to prosecute offshore Internet casinos that place radio ads designed to lure Nevada gamblers online.

Scherer said that it would be the content of the ad that would determine whether prosecution would be warranted. He claimed that the ads ask Nevadans to do something illegal --gamble on the Internet. But Control Board Chairman Dennis Neilander said: “Legally, it's tough to get jurisdiction over these operators.”
