Gaming Control Board also pondering removing requirement for players to register in-person

The Nevada Gaming Control Board (NGCB) is considering amending regulations to allow its licensees to accept wagers placed out of state. 

The measure was discussed at a meeting of the NGCB yesterday (October 16th) among a number of other changes, which include the removal of the requirement that players register in-person for sports betting accounts. 

Should the changes be approved players based in other states will be able to place sports, non-pari-mutuel and events bets “if such wagers are legal under the other state’s law and federal law”. 

A further proposal would also remove the requirement that players provide their full social security number and have their ID verified in-person when registering for an account. 

This would bring Nevada in line with states such as New Jersey, which has seen the majority of its sports betting revenue generated through mobile channels. 

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that NGCB chair Becky Harris expressed an interest in considering the remote registration proposal. 

However she warned that any recommendation would have to win a majority in a board vote before it could be passed to the Nevada Gaming Commission for further consideration.
