Online gambling now legal in Nevada

As of Thursday this week, online gambling is legal in the state of Nevada.

Nevada is most famous for the city of Las Vegas, USA’s long-time gambling destination of choice.

Thursday morning, Nevada governor Brian Sandoval signed the controversial online gambling bill after having vetoed a previous online wagering bill put forward a while ago. However, Sandoval did hint at the signing on Thursday that he may sign an amended version of the same online wagering bill next week.

It is understood that instrumental in Sandoval’s decision to legalize online gambling was the fact that New Jersey governor Chris Christie has indicated that he would instantly sign an amended version of New Jersey’s own proposed online gambling bill. “Our competitor, New Jersey… should be accustomed to following Nevada,” Sandoval was quoted as saying at the signing.
