|On November 4th, Nevada voters will decide on Amendment 33, which would put 2500 video gaming terminals in dog and race tracks in the state. Although not strictly online gaming, the scratch card type games are very similar to those found on the Internet. |
The potential of the video gaming terminals is promising for the racetracks, and if they can do in Las Vegas what they have done in the United Kingdom, revenue to the tracks will be substantial. However, small local casinos oppose the proposed terminals saying that they will detract from their business.
The similarities between video terminal gambling and online gambling are slight. And if Nevadans vote yes to Amendment 33, online casino lobbyists and supports will have another arrow in the quiver to fire at Nevada legislators.
