British May Bet on Live Las Vegas Action
By staff
Herbert Lindos, a 77-year-old entrepreneur from Mineola, New York has come up with the blockbuster idea of letting British gamblers bet live via the television on Las Vegas casino games. The games will be telecast from the casino floor.

The concept of live webcam betting is not new, but the introduction of webcams into Las Vegas is. In fact, the idea is so foreign to the US authorities, Lindos is seeking its approval from the Senate Judiciary Committee. 'All we really are is an extension of a casino here, which goes all around the world' he professed to the committee.

Because online and television betting is legal in great Britain, and because broadcasting live casino action is not illegal in Nevada or throughout the United States, Lindos feels he has presented a strong case.

Nevada Gaming Control Board Chairman Dennis Neilander is not as bullish as Lindos and worries that this new gambling avenue may put the reputation of Nevada gaming in jeopardy. But with projected royalties approaching $1 billion, Lindos is ready to lay it all on the line.
