ALL BETS ARE OFF

Will Ve­gas’s re­laxed gam­bling laws mean bet­ting at matches?

EDGE - - KNOWLEDGE ESPORTS -

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.”
