ALL BETS ARE OFF
Will Vegas’s relaxed gambling laws mean betting at matches?
Walk through the crowd at the Evo fighting-game tournament and you quickly realise it isn’t only held in Las Vegas for the size of its venues. Yet Igelman downplays any suggestion gambling was a factor in Millennial’s decision to set up shop in Vegas. “We don’t intend to apply for a gaming licence or offer any gambling in our venue,” he says. “But there are plenty of licensed gaming companies in Las Vegas that could offer gambling on esports. It will only be a matter of time for the Nevada Gaming Commission to approve and regulate esports wagering, as well as, potentially, skill-based gambling.”
