Sports bettors in Nevada don’t need a physical ticket to cash a ticket.
Mobile betting has grown steadily over the past decade, and virtually all casino sportsbooks have a mobile app to allow betting on the go.
These are the basics of mobile betting (casino rules may vary):
1. Bettors must sign up for accounts in person. They will need a player’s card with the casino and photo ID and must fill out an application and tax form.
2. Once approved, bettors can make their first deposit over the counter. Amounts vary by casino, but the initial deposit usually must be at least $100. The various casinos offer various bonuses for new sign-ups.
3. Bettors then can download the relevant app and start placing wagers. Apps are available for iPhone and Android users.
4. Bettors do not have to be Nevada residents, but all bets must be made while the bettor is in the state. Geolocation must be turned on bettors’ phones for verification. Tourists can sign up for a mobile account, use it while they are in Las Vegas, then withdraw the money before returning home.
